Prayers of the People, draft, Suncook United Methodist Church, July 1, 2012

Dear Lord –

We come to you waiting, trusting, believing, knowing you will provide, that you will heal us, that we can walk boldly, safe in your arms. Help us when we struggle, when we are anxious even in times of plenty. Guide us back to you, when we stray from the past.

We are mindful this week of our nation, of our Independence Day. We pray for our country, for those who love her and for all who protect her, especially those standing in the dark places of this world so that we may remain free.

We pray for all those who are hurting, who need your healing touch. We pray for those on our prayer circle and for those who have been lifted up this morning aloud or in within our hearts. You know what is needed and you will provide that healing.

We pray for those in the Methodist faith who are sitting in congregations with a new pastor this morning and we pray for their new pastors. May this be a wonderful opportunity for all of them to grow and to serve You.

We bring our lives to you and we lay our joys, our concerns, our celebrations and our worries. We trust in you, our Creator and our Savior.

And we join all of Christ’s disciples sharing the prayer that he taught his first disciples, saying. . .

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
