Dear Lord of our creation and salvation, we open our hearts to you in prayer, every day of the week.
May your churches throughout the world be inspired and guided through your Holy Spirit to serve others.
You call us to offer food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted.
Let our light rise in the darkness with the Lord as our guide.
Bless all who enter this church, Emmanuel, for our service, concerts, the labyrinth, prayer and meditation, or to rest in the beauty of this place of peace.
Bless our dear Fr. Berto, and Fr. High, Bishop Greg, Presiding Bishop Michael, and all who serve in our mission to love God, God’s creation, and our neighbors as ourselves.
Lord of love and mercy, bless us each in healing our own infirmities, as we offer your compassion in service to others, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Lord of great kindness, bring resolution to the world crisis of migrant people, seeking safety for their families, fleeing from danger and atrocities.
Make all nations see the increasing danger level of war, the potential destruction from uncontrolled weapons at the hands of anger and hatred.
We pray for your hand to be on the hearts and minds of all leaders.
Lord of Power and Might, make us leaders for peace in the world, with equality for all people. Let our light rise in the darkness. We are in your hands.
Comfort prisoners and captives, the hungry and homeless, and all who suffer in body, mind or spirit.
