Prayers of Intercession:

(Introduction and Conclusion from Revised Common Lectionary Prayers, copyright © 2002)

Let us pray for the needs of the church and the world to God who raised Jesus to new life.

A brief silence.

Where the church is broken, O God, bring healing, hope, and resurrection. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Where creation is suffering, O God, restore it to wholeness and glory. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Where systems lead to injustice, O God, raise leaders who will advocate for justice and equality. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Where relationships are broken, O God, bring forgiveness and reconciliation. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Where people are in pain, O God, bring comfort and endurance. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Where we are turned inward, O God, open our eyes to your presence in the world around us. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Here other intercessions may be offered.

Where we are tempted to stray, O God, keep us on the way of all the saints before us, the way of Christ. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Through the resurrection of your son, O God, you destroy the power of death and remove your people’s shame. By the power of the Spirit, raise us from sin and seat us at the paschal feast, that we may rejoice in the gift of salvation Jesus has won for us. Amen.
