Prayers for the People:

Holy God, make your people one as you and your Son are one.

Extend the gifts we have been given by your Spirit to all people, especially those experiencing division or questioning your love.

Make worthy the work of scientists who look to the stars and planets, as well as scientists who look to atoms and molecules.

Bring innovation and well-being to humanity through their discoveries.


Keep in our minds those who have died in war, both military and civilians.

May we honor them by seeking peaceful solutions to the conflicts that arise among nations and peoples.


Grant freedom to all who are overwhelmed by chronic illness, depression, or constant worry.

Open them to receive health and salvation in Christ Jesus through the Spirit’s gift of faith.


Stir imagination and understanding throughout the church in the work of poets, theologians, and hymnwriters.

Lead us into new visions and fresh expressions of your presence.


Unite us with the saints who have died and been raised in Jesus.

Train us to wait with eager longing for Christ to come again, even as we sense his presence with us now.


In your mercy, O God, respond to these prayers, and renew us by your life-giving Spirit; through Jesus Christ, our Savior.
