Prayers of Intercession. "Thine Is the Glory" (Trumpet solo/trio performed by Chris Long)

Prayers of Intercession

Praying separately in our homes and together in the Spirit, let us pray for the church, the earth, the world, and all who are in need, responding to each petition with the words “hear our prayer.”

A brief silence.

All your creation praises you—the earth hums, the seas pulse, the stars shine, and the galaxies whirl in glorious harmonies to honor you. Let us hear and blend our voices in the song. Lord, in your mercy,

hear our prayer.

The countries of the world experience disunity and conflict; we set our minds on fear and greed rather than on your rule of justice and steadfast love. Build up all countries on your cornerstone of peace. Lord, in your mercy,

hear our prayer.

We still weep with those who weep, and mourn with those who mourn. Cradle the fearful, the suffering, and the dying, assuring them of your loving presence, especially those affected by the coronavirus.   Lord, in your mercy,

hear our prayer.

Risen Lord, you went ahead of us into the grave and defeated the powers of evil. We remember those who have died. Inspire us to live our lives in this resurrection hope and draw us to you in our final days. Lord, in your mercy,

hear our prayer.

With bold confidence in your love, almighty God, we place all for whom we pray into your eternal care; through Christ our Lord.     Amen.


May the One who brought forth Jesus from the dead raise you to new life, fill you with hope, and turn your mourning into dancing.  Almighty God, Father, ☩ Son, and Holy Spirit, bless you now and forever.



Christ is risen, just as he said.  Go in peace. Share the good news. Alleluia!                  Thanks be to God. Alleluia!
