Prayer for December 23: Please pray with me. Holy God who comes to us in innocence, today we pray for the innocent in our world, the feeble, the meek, the humble, the weak, the poor, the sick, the disabled, the captive, the refuge, and all marginalized in whatever society they find themselves in. You bring Good News Lord – that the world is about to be turned right-side-up. Reconcile all of creation and help us to live out the Good News that you give. Amen.
Prayer for December 9: Please pray with me. God of health, today we pray that you would grant us your healing – healing our bodies of ailments, healing our hearts of hard-heartedness, healing our minds of clutter, healing our spirits of being unsettled, healing our feet that we may walk the gospel into each place we come to, healing our hands that they may offer loving touch, healing our mouth that it may offer words of mercy, love, peace, and forgiveness. Heal us Lord as we prepare for you to come – as you came so long ago, are coming into our lives today, and will come back again to bring about the fulfillment of your kingdom. Amen.
Prayer for November 7: Please pray with me. God who rules over creation, today we pray a prayer of calmness. There is much anxiety in the air Lord. Yet, you remind us that worrying will not add a single moment to our lives. That is because our salvation is in you – and no where else. Regardless of what may happen in an election, your kingdom will reign and never end. Because of this, we know that we can rest peacefully because we rest in you. Amen.
