Prayer for Others
(inspired by Psalm 19:14)

Creator God, we come before you
asking prayers for those who lead
nations
cities
churches
homes.

As you poured out your love in the Word
may we hear your word and follow;
may the words of our mouths
and the meditations of our hearts lead us
to you.

Holy One, we come before you -
a people broken into shards of lives
sick,
poor,
hungry
hidden by the limitations of our eyes.

Help us to see as You see
as you poured out your love in the Word.
May we hear your word and follow
may the words of our mouths and
the meditations of our hearts lead us
to you.

God of Mercy, we come before you –
seeking to live as you command, but often failing,
and thus we are torn by
cries of despair
anger
power
control
lost to foolishness and
stumbling blocks
despite your love in the Word

Help us to hear your word and follow
May the words of our mouths
and the meditations of our hearts lead us
to you.

Gentle God, we come before you
giving thanks for all our blessings
the gift of life
hope
faith
love
family
friends
all we care for this day.
Help us to be Your hands.

Incline Your heart, O gracious God, and teach us to love
O Christ, our rock and our Redeemer.
Amen.
