God, who raised Jesus from the dead,
will give new life to our own mortal bodies through his Spirit living in us.
(Romans 8)


Lord, this earthly life is a passage into eternal life.
May we, who walk this passage in life,
grow in strength and courage to remain faithful to your ways and your teachings when you walked this same earthly life.
Help us to trust in your unconditional love for us so that some day we may enjoy the vision of your glory for ever.
Amen.

The Lord will not abandon his people.
(Ps. 94)


God, our creator, we have those moments in life where we sometimes feel like you have abandoned us.
Yet, we know you are with us always, until the end of time.
Help us to value the gifts that are all around us,
to share the fruits of your presence with those we meet
and to share the wonders of your creation with our brothers and sisters.
Amen.

Teach me your paths, my God, and lead me in your truth.
(Ps. 25)


Loving and gentle God, you show us the path of life.
May your light always guide our feet as we walk the path that you reveal for us to take in this journey in life.
Sometimes this path is easy and other times it is difficult.
We ask for the grace to remain faithful to walking this path and when we need help to be humble enough to ask for your help.
Amen.

God, our protector, keep us in mind:
always give strength to your people.
For if we can be with you even one day,
it is better than a thousand without you.
(Ps. 83)


Loving and caring God, you protect us as we walk this journey of faith with you.
May we strive to achieve all that you have in store for us on this earth,
so we may live with you in glory forever.
Amen.

Listen, Lord, and answer me.
Save your servant who trusts in you.
I call to you all day long, have mercy on me, Lord.
(Ps. 85)


Lord our God, we trust in your loving presence in our lives.
As we live in an ever-changing world, our lives can be entangled in the chaos of moving too quickly.
We are in need of your mercy especially in those times when we find ourselves caught in the spiral of chaos and negativity.
Amen.

Prayer for Friendship

You have blessed us, O God,
with the gift of friendship,
the bonding of persons
in a circle of love.
We thank you for such a blessing:
for friends who love us,
who share our sorrows,
who laugh with us in celebration,
who bear our pain,
who need us as we need them,
who weep as we weep,
who hold us when words fail,
and who give us the freedom
to be ourselves.
Bless our friends with health,
wholeness, life, and love.
Amen.

- Vienna Cobb Anderson

The Lord is faithful in all his words and holy in his deeds.
(Ps. 145)


Lord Jesus, we strive to remain faithful to your words in our lives and to live in holiness, yet we sometimes fall short of this goal.
At times, we are fragile and weak, and are in need of your mercy in our lives.
In these moments, when we have failed to remain faithful, we ask for your forgiveness and mercy.
Amen.

Come, you whom my father has blessed, says the Lord;
I was ill and you comforted me.
I tell you, anything you did for one of my brothers, you did for me.
(Mt. 25)


Lord Jesus, your teachings and examples of the beatitudes give us great encouragement to reach out to those in need.
May we hear the cries of those who are in pain, hurting and feeling so alone.
We ask for your grace to be attentive to their cries and to respond in service to their needs.
Amen.

The Lord says; my plans for you are peace and not disaster;
when you call to me, I will listen to you,
and I will bring you back to the place from which I exiled you.
(Jeremiah 29)


Lord, you are the source of all that is good.
In our lives, there are moments when we fall from the road that brings us to you.
In these moments, there are times that our darkness and fear can appear to overwhelm us.
May your saving grace bring us back on the road that leads to you and may we grow stronger in our trust of your presence and care of us in our journey in life.
Amen.

Our Savior Jesus Christ has done away with death and brought us life through his gospel.
(2 Tim. 1)


Lord Jesus, we all have trials and difficult moments in life that we must face.
Amid these times, help us to remain faithful to your presence in our lives and help us to spread your loving presence to those who seem to think there is no hope.
Help us to reveal that there is hope and that they are never alone, for you are with us always.
Amen.

I call upon you, God, for you will answer me;
bend your ear and hear my prayer.
Guard me as the pupil of your eye;
hide me in the shade of your wings.
(Ps. 6)


Almighty and ever-living God, you are our source of power and inspiration.
As we remember you, we bring before you our concerns, worries, cares
and problems confident that you hear them and will answer our prayers.
Amen.

If you, O Lord, laid bare our guilt,
who could endure it?
But you are forgiving,
God of Israel.
(Ps. 129)


Lord, be attentive to those who call upon you this day.
In our humanness our hearts can at times be like stone.
In these moments, help us to rely on your forgiveness and mercy
and give us the grace of conversion to change our hardness of hearts into gentle loving beings.
Amen.

Prayer for Labor Day

Lord on this Labor Day,
we thank You for the blessing of work.
We ask for strength to complete each day.
We ask for rest when we are weary.
We ask Your guidance for everyone seeking employment,
and we ask that You be with those whose faces
we might never see but who work tirelessly each day
for the good of us all.
Amen.

We ask that you open our hearts to the concern of our neighbors and to those who are alone.
We pray with grateful hearts for the grace to share your goodness with those whom we encounter each day.
Amen.

We pray that your graces will bring all humankind together in this world and that we will all be worthy to share a place in your kingdom for ever.
Amen.
