Prayer Requests: Seventh Sunday After Pentecost

Book of common prayer (TEC, 1979)

Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding, be present with those who take counsel in The Episcopal Church for the renewal and mission of your Church. Teach them in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide them to perceive what is right, and grant them both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (1979 Book of Common Prayer, adapted)

Christ, in your mercy, pray for:

Zeke, who has cancer, grandmother Cheryle, and their whole family Messages for them may be sent to Frankie

For Godwin and his unspoken need

Elisa, as she reaches out to a family member to help him start a new life, guidance, support and resources, as well as God’s hand over the relationship

Letisha, trying to bring up two sons after losing a third, God’s comfort and support, and that the cycle of incarceration in the family is broken

Favor and guidance for Coty for a good reentry and new life

Vimari, who hopes to have a successful second chance bringing up his children after his release

Larry’s healing from unknown health problems and serious pain – messages may be sent through Frankie

A man struggling with making the transition to life on the outside after being in prison

Theresa’s emotional and financial support while husband Jacob is in prison

Ben, as he struggles to overcome addiction and reconnect with his 10-year-old son

Aaron, a recent convert to Christianity, for support, lasting change, and knowledge that he is forgiven

O God, you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbor: Grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. (1979 Book of Common Prayer)
