Community Prayers 07.17.11

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 …

  • Accepting a job offer already being tapped to present at an upcoming conference (Rachel)
  • Overcoming some major personal struggles
  • My aunt who is mentally ill and struggling (Jason)
  • Hearing our prayers and answering us.  For providing land to those who are being kicked out. (Delphine)

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

Prayers of Petition. For …

  • Those in the Horn of Africa suffering from drought and violence
  • Jenn Hattmaker who is adopting two children from Ethiopia. She can bring one child home, but the other is still stuck in litigation and must remain. (Stephen)
  • My relationship with my brother, which is growing more distant and strained (Rachel)
  • Good friends who are trying to start a family and have encountered set backs (John)
  • Opportunities to share Jesus with those I’ve encountered, that it wouldn’t drive them further away (Evan)

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