Community Prayers 05.01.11

As a community, we can support and celebrate with each other through prayer. Join us in praying for those both spoken and unspoken during Sunday liturgy.

Prayers of Thanksgiving. For …

  • Friends and family around in the first month with our new baby (Paul)
  • My younger brother who has had a lot of struggles the past few years. He has recently reconnected with God and made some big changes in his life. (Gina)
  • Really good neighbors. I’m thankful to live where we live with our neighbors. (Gid)
  • The blessing my neighbors have been in my life (Aaron)
  • My new trailer that is beautiful and peaceful so I don’t have to be out in the street (Becky)
  • A closing date for our new house (Rachel)

… let us bless the Lord.  Thanks be to God.

Prayers of Petition. For …

  • Finding perfect peace and rest in Jesus (Paul)
  • Our sweet friend Jenny Brown who is leaving to be with her fiance in Costa Rica and that she will find a job (Gina)
  • Neighbors on an adjacent street that were targeted recently and dealing with an attempted break-in while they were there (Gid)
  • The elderly in the neighborhood who are poor, in bad health, and worst of all, lonely. Be with them and give them strength, hope, and community. (Aaron)
  • The the broken-hearted
  • My cousin who is living with my aunt and uncle right now. She’s having a lot of struggles and doesn’t even know if she wants to be alive. (Dawn)
  • Having the right perspective on everyday life while I’m still here (before going back to Central Asia) and that I can spend quality time with people here (Evan)
  • Victims of the tornado, especially for my friend Buddy who lost his girlfriend in the tornado. (Joe)

… let us pray to the Lord.  Lord have mercy.
