Lord, hear our prayers. We are your faithful people, struggling,
but with your help, abiding still in your love. Lord, hear our prayers. We cry aloud to you and our community of faith hears. Strengthen us in the body of Christ as we seek to minister to each other. Lord, hear our prayers. We rely on you for wisdom and guidance, and for the peace that passes understanding. Grant our requests, heal our wounds, magnify our joys. These things we pray in your mighty name! (Silent Confession) AMEN.
