Hope Intercessions
Epiphany 6 — February 16, 2020


Trusting that God hears us, let us pray for the church, the world, and all those in need. 


Shepherding God, you protect and guide us with you word. Lead your church into ever closer relationship with you, that we might better know your commands, hold fast to your heart, and live in your will.

 

Hear us, O God,
Your mercy is great.

 

God of the cosmos, heaven and earth bear witness to the splendour of all you have created. Bless the ground trees, waterways, and skies with abundant life. Restore synergy between humankind and the natural world, that we learn better to live in harmony with the world you have made.

 

Hear us, O God,
Your mercy is great.


God of peace, you show solidarity with all who suffer. Bring and end to violence, war, discrimination, and all other forms of hate, that we may experience and share your love through the power of justice.

 

Hear us, O God,
Your mercy is great.


God of hope, you provide bountifully for all people. Use our lives to alleviate global injustice and eliminate poverty, that all benefit from the abundant gifts you pour out for us all.

 

Hear us, O God,
Your mercy is great.


God of growth, you nurture this community. Cultivate in us a spirit of service to one another and bless us in the ministry we share with the Anglican Church of Canada and Bishop Logan; with those who gather as the RomanCatholic churches in our area and Bishop Gary; and in our Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada with Bishops Greg and Susan. We pray as well for Hope Lutheran Church of Nanaimo and our own Pastor Terry Richardson; and for all institutions such as Berwick on the Lake, Eden Gardens, Kiwanis, Lakeside Gardens, Nanaimo Senior’s Village, Origin, and Wexford, that care for the elderly.

 

Hear us, O God,
Your mercy is great. 


God of our ancestors, Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebecca, Jacob and Leah and Rachel, we give you thanks for our forbears in the faith who now rest in your eternal grace and love. 


Hear us, O God,
Your mercy is great.


God of community, grant us receptive hearts to how you lead and move among us. Move us forward into this year with gladness as we review our past year together at our Annual General Meeting today.

 

Hear us, O God,
Your mercy is great. 


Confident that you are able to accomplish more than we even dare to ask, we bring these prayers before you, confident of your saving grace revealed in Jesus Christ our Lord.


Amen.
