Creator God, we pray for the faithful in every land, wherever we worship and work in your name.  Bless our clergy leaders, including Michael; Melissa; Brian; and Joseph, as well as all lay leaders. We  ask your blessings on All Saints Goshen, who use our space to worship, and for recovery groups who  are based at St. Hilda St. Patrick. Precious Lord, Hear our prayer.

In the Diocese of Olympia, we pray today for St. Luke’s and St. Stephen, Seattle. In the Anglican cycle  of prayer, we remember The Church of the Province of Myanmar. Precious Lord, Hear our prayer.

For elected and appointed officials, and all who have power and authority in our world, we pray for  wisdom, humility, and compassion. Precious Lord, Hear our prayer.
