March 17: Weekly Prayers

We pray for peace, O God, and for your salvation to be known throughout the world.

For the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church and for the unity of all Christian people. We pray for  the Church in Wales; and for the faith communities of St. David’s, Friday Harbor; and Grace, Lopez  Island. 

For all who serve and lead in your Church; Brian and Melissa our bishops; Joseph, our vicar; our  Bishop’s Committee; and for all bishops, priests and deacons. 

For all your people, growing in the faith of Christ, and passing it on to generations yet to come.

For all who are preparing to be baptized at the Easter Vigil, especially Stephanie.

For all who live and work in this community. 

For families, and for those who live alone.

For all who are sick in body or in mind, and for those who care for them. We pray for those who have  commended themselves to our prayers: Emilio; Ian; Barbara; Christine; Sue; Giles; Denice; Jim;  Richard; Suzanne; Karen; Steve and Becky; Rosemary; Joseph, Brandon, and their family; and those we  now name, either silently or aloud. 

For all in authority, and especially for Joe, our President.  

 For all who have been entrusted with the responsibility of government. 

For those who work for peace, justice and righteousness throughout the world. 

For those who have died, that they may receive your mercy. We remember those we now name,  either silently or aloud. 

For those celebrating birthdays and anniversaries this week, especially Jill, and those we now name,  either silently or aloud.  

Rejoicing in the fellowship of your holy apostles and martyrs, and of all your servants departed this  life in your faith and fear, we commend ourselves and one another and our whole life to you, Lord  God; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
