POP–hear us

Prayers of the People (based on Psalm 102) 

O Lord, hear our prayers,

for we speak on behalf of all who are in trouble.

Incline your ear to us, and answer quickly, we pray.

 

We pray for all who are anxious about the future,

about endings and changes in their own lives,

and about turmoil or change in the world around us.

Be food and water for all who wander in the wilderness.

Blessed Jesus, Hear us when we pray.

 

We pray for those whose bodies suffer or waste away,

who are ill or unable to eat and drink,

or who anxiously await a diagnosis or treatment.

Surround your people with your steadfast presence.

Blessed Jesus, Hear us when we pray.

 

We pray for the nations of the world,

especially for those places in the grip of violence, famine, or disaster.

Look with favor on those who have no power or security.

Blessed Jesus, Hear us when we pray.

 

We pray for the future,

for families and communities we have not yet known,

but who are already dear to your eternal heart.

May every generation praise the name of the Lord.

Blessed Jesus, Hear us when we pray.

 

We pray for ourselves,

for the needs we hold before you in silence,

and for the gift of your Holy Spirit

to inspire, lead, and empower us in your service.

Blessed Jesus, Hear us when we pray.

 

Hear us, O Lord, for we pray as your people,

joining in the prayer you taught us, saying:

The Lord’s Prayer
