Father, we pray for your holy Catholic Church;
That we all may be one.
Grant that every member of the Church may truly and humbly serve you;
That your Name may be glorified by all people.
We pray for all bishops, including Justin, Archbishop of Canterbury; Michael, our Presiding Bishop; Rob and Keith, our Bishops; and for all priests, and deacons;
That they may be faithful ministers of your Word and Sacraments.
We pray for all who govern and hold authority in the nations of the world;
That there may be justice and peace on the earth.
Give us grace to do your will in all that we undertake;
That our works may find favor in your sight.
We give you thanks for the birth of Blake Lewis Ammons Young, son of Peden and Liz Young; for our friends at San Pablo Parish in Camaguey, Cuba, and we pray for our youth and chaperones on their Journey To Adulthood Pilgrimage in Arizona this week. Bless them with safety as they travel and fill their spirits with joy and enthusiasm as they encounter God’s presence in new places;
That they may grow in wisdom and grace.
Have compassion on those who suffer from any grief or trouble, including Jean, Brian, Taylor, Dottie, Kenneth, Chuck, Dudley, Evelio, Julia, and William;
That they may be delivered from their distress.
Give to the departed eternal rest, including William Garrison, Peggy Fox, Chuck Jones, Juan Guerrero, and Cheryl Armstrong Ranwez;
Let light perpetual shine upon them.
We praise you for your saints who have entered into joy;
May we also come to share in your heavenly kingdom.
Let us pray for our own needs and those of others.
