The Prayers of the People

 

Second Sunday of Advent ~ December 8, 2019

 

 

Priest:As we await the coming of Christ in mercy and majesty, let us pray for the Church, the world, and for all people according to their need.

Come quickly, righteous Branch from Jesse’s root. Make your Church holy, faithful, and tireless in proclaiming your sure approach. By its witness of words and deeds, lead many to repentance and faith in you. In the Episcopal Church, we remember our Presiding Bishop, Michael; our Bishop, Michael; our Assisting Bishop, Craig; and our priest, Lin. In our Diocese, we remember our emerging congregations: Des Moines, Angel Fire, and Magdalena. In the Anglican Communion, we pray for Justin, the Archbishop of Canterbury and for the work of the Mothers' Union around the world, Sheran Harper, Worldwide President, and Bev Jullien, Chief Executive.

Lord, fill us with all joy and peace in believing

People:that we may abound in hope.

Come quickly, King foretold by holy prophets. Rule among your servants in this parish. Bestow your Spirit upon us. Help us to show mercy and kindness to one another, and to live in harmony as your people.

Lord, fill us with all joy and peace in believing

People:that we may abound in hope.

Come quickly, righteous and faithful Savior. Vindicate those who are persecuted. Decide with equity on their behalf. Lay low the wicked who refuse to repent. And hasten the day when no one shall hurt or destroy on your holy mountain.

Lord, fill us with all joy and peace in believing

People:that we may abound in hope.

Come quickly, Ensign and Signal to all peoples. Establish your glorious and gentle rule among the nations. Teach the rulers of the world to judge with righteousness, to deliberate with equity, and to care for the poor and needy in their charge. We pray especially for Donald, our President; Greg, our Governor; and Dee, our Mayor. We pray also for the United States Congress and all members of the Judiciary.

Lord, fill us with all joy and peace in believing

People: that we may abound in hope.

Come quickly, King of Mercy. Banish those things which trouble your people in body, mind, heart or soul. Especially we lift before you all who crave your healing touch:  ____ [Contact Rev. Lin for list of names and intercessions]. Keep them safe from every evil, and restore them to health, hope, and fellowship with all who love them.

Lord, fill us with all joy and peace in believing

People:that we may abound in hope.

Come quickly, Lord of Life. Reunite us with all the saints who from their labors rest, especially those closest to us:  _____ [Contact Rev. Lin for list of names and intercessions]. As we walk through life’s winding pathways, bestow on us your righteousness, wisdom, and mercy. And bring us to your holy mountain, where with all the redeemed, we shall delight in your presence and sing of your mercy and love forever.

Lord, fill us with all joy and peace in believing

People:that we may abound in hope.

Priest:All these things, and whatever else you see that we need, grant to us, dear Father, for the sake of your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
