With the prayer “Spirit of God” you are invited to respond…
HEAR OUR PRAYER.

1. With reverence for the earth, those in need and the whole human family let us offer our prayers to God.

A brief silence.

2. Lord, deepen the worship life of our church and so having experienced the joy of worshiping, send us out to share our joy and your promises.
Spirit of God
Hear our prayer.

3. Lord, continue to touch the lives and hearts of those who gather to worship in their assemblies. We pray at this time for our neighboring religious communities, for our partner Anglican Church of Canada and for our sister congregations in the BC Synod: in particular we pray for Peace Lutheran Church in Abbotsford and their pastor, Christoph Reiners; for Emmaus Lutheran Church in Burnaby and their pastor, Jukka Joensuu; and for Mount Zion Lutheran Church in Smithers and their pastor, Margaret Powell.
Spirit of God:
HEAR OUR PRAYER.

4. Continue to raise up courageous and compassionate leaders in this and every land who will speak out on behalf of those who are disadvantaged and oppressed.
Spirit of God
Hear our prayer.

5. Awaken in us a profound and daily commitment to care for the earth so that your glory may be revealed in lakes and rivers, mountains and valleys, plants and animals.
Spirit of God
Hear our prayer.

6. Teach us in confidence to call you Abba as we entrust to you our personal concerns along with all who are suffering in body, mind or spirit. We pray especially for those we now name aloud or quietly in our heart…

Help us in our ministry this coming week to reflect your patience and your hope.
Spirit of God:
HEAR OUR PRAYER

7. Lord, we thank you for those who are celebrating graduations, marriages and other special events during this season.
– So we thank you for those who have the gift of another birthday or another anniversary, and for those who have known the gift of new life:
– And we thank you for coming to us with words of assurance and guidance in our Sunday services;
– Finally we thank you for those special blessings we name aloud at this time….

Lord, continue to help us experience your presence in our weekly worship and in our daily life.
Spirit of God
HEAR OUR PRAYER.

8. We give thanks for your holy ones, young and old who have been baptized into the name of the Trinity. May all born anew in the waters of grace know daily your upholding presence.
Spirit of God
Hear our prayer.

9. Receive our hope and our prayers, O God of mercy, for great is your faithfulness in Christ Jesus our Lord.
