Prayers of the People: Proper 7B (SC Track)


Prayers of the People—Proper 7B (SC Track)

Brothers and sisters, may the Lord be with you!  Trusting that our God listens when we pray, let us say, “We put our trust in you, O Lord. Answer with your peace.”

We call to you, O Lord: hear our prayers for the Church. Set us upon the sure foundation of your loving-kindness.  Open wide our hearts to accept your grace.

I ask your thanksgivings, followed by Silence

We put our trust in you, O Lord.
Answer with your peace.

We call to you, O Lord: hear our prayers for the world. You are known by your acts of justice.  Let the hope of the poor be not taken away.

Silence
We put our trust in you, O Lord.
Answer with your peace.

We call to you, O Lord: hear our prayers for all creation. Even the wind and the sea obey your command.  Speak peace and life to all you have made.

Silence
We put our trust in you, O Lord.
Answer with your peace.

We call to you, O Lord: hear our prayers for those who are unhoused and homeless.  You are a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in time of trouble. Do not forsake those who seek your help.

Silence
We put our trust in you, O Lord.
Answer with your peace.

We call to you, O Lord: hear our prayers for those in any kind of need. You do not forget the needy; they are ever in your thoughts.  You hear the cry of the afflicted.  Fill down-turned mouths with praise and rejoicing. 

I ask your petitions, followed by Silence

We put our trust in you, O Lord.
Answer with your peace.

We call to you, O Lord: hear our prayers for the dying and the dead.  You are the God of life; you lift your people from the gates of death.  We commend to your mercy all who have died.

Silence
We put our trust in you, O Lord.
Answer with your peace.
