Prayer Concerns - June 20, 2017

Second Sunday after Pentecost

Teach us, good Lord God, to serve you as you deserve, to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not to ask for reward, except that of knowing that we do your will, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

O God, rich in mercy, by the humiliation of your Son you lifted up this fallen world and rescued us from the hopelessness of death. Lead us into your light, that all our deeds may reflect your love, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. - See more at: http://www.elca.org/Our-Work/Congregations-and-Synods/Worship/Lectionary/YearB#Easter
Almighty God, with joy we celebrate the day of our Lord’s resurrection. By the grace of Christ among us, enable us to show the power of the resurrection in all that we say and do, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. - See more at: http://www.elca.org/Our-Work/Congregations-and-Synods/Worship/Lectionary/YearB#Easter
Holy God, your word feeds your people with life that is eternal. Direct our choices and preserve us in your truth, that, renouncing what is false and evil, we may live in you, through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. - See more at: http://www.elca.org/Our-Work/Congregations-and-Synods/Worship/Lectionary/YearB#Pentecost
