A Prayer for Unity and Understanding

O good and gracious God, we give you thanks for the leaders of Anacortes Lutheran Church who work diligently to continue the church’s ministries, even in the midst of this pandemic year; for council members, staff, committee chairs and all the other volunteers who dedicate energy and hours.

Bless all school children, teachers and parents as the school years begins.  Be with students whether they attend      in-person classrooms and work online, that they might grow in knowledge and understanding.  Protect teachers in classrooms and guide those who lead over the Internet; we thank you for their dedication and commitment.  Support parents who take on the work of in-home instruction even as they struggle with work, childcare, and home concerns.  We entrust all these into your care.

We thank you for computers and other technologies which enable learning at home.

O Lord, we miss our friends and fellow congregants at ALC.  Be with the sewing ladies, choir members, and shut-ins.  We look forward to the day when we can return and be an assembled community once again.

We pray for those neighbors who see their businesses threatened by the pandemic economy.  Help them to hold on during these difficult times.  Be with those who are currently unemployed, furloughed, or who have seen their income reduced.  We pray for economic solutions and an end to this crisis.

Be with national, state and local leaders who must make difficult decisions for the welfare of citizens and cities. We pray they might have wisdom and compassion in their deliberations. 

Walk with the recent graduates from ALC as they take on new roles in the world.  We lift up Ryan, Logan, Garrett and Aiden.  Keep alive their dreams.  Grant them opportunities to transition into the vocations and ministries to which you have called them.

We bring before you all your children in need of healing and comfort.  Be with those who we know by name and those whose names we might never know.  You are the healer of all our ills.  Come quickly with grace, mercy, power and love.  

Be with doctors, nurses, first line responders and all who practice the medical arts.  Grant them strength to carry on in uncertain times that all your children would receive care for bodies broken, diseased and as well as emotional and spiritual infirmities. 

We raise all these petitions before you.  In mercy and love, hear our prayers for Jesus’ sake.  Amen.

Special Prayers


+ Loving God, wrap your arms of love and hope around all who are experiencing any kind                  of loss, disconnection, or brokenness.
