Prayer Concerns - August 11, 2017

Ninth Sunday after Pentecost

Glorious God, your generosity waters the world with goodness, and you cover creation with abundance. Awaken in us a hunger for the food that satisfies both body and spirit, and with this food fill all the starving world; through your Son, 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
