Prayers of Intercession:

Let us pray for the whole people of God in Christ Jesus, and for all people according to their needs.

A brief silence.

For your church, O God; that our faith may be strengthened and your love proclaimed. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For animals and fields, birds and waterways, O God; that the care of your creation may be a priority for us who are charged to steward it. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For all nations, O God; that your awesomeness might inspire us to justice, peace, and equality. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For the lonely and despairing, O God; that hope may be found in your presence and love. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

For the sick and grieving, O God (especially,…); that healing and comfort may come into their lives. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Here other intercessions may be offered.

For all the saints, O God (especially Thomas, Apostle of the Lord, and …); that their witness and proclamation strengthen our faith still today. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Into your hands, O Lord, we commend all for whom we pray, trusting in your mercy; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
