We come to you humbled by your greatness, your wonderful love, your holy wisdom.
We bring our praise of you, praise of your creation, praise of you tender mercies you bestow on us.
We come singing our love for you.
Lord , we pray for those who are poor in spirit that the may be made rich in you.
Lord we pray for comfort for those who mourn
We pray for those whose lives have been humbled by hardships that may be strengthened.
We pray for those who are hungry that their bellies be filled. But we also pray for those who hunger spiritually, may their souls be filled.
We pray for those who need mercy in their lives, may we show them your mercy in the way we treat them.
We pray for those who can’t see God that one day they may.
We pray for peace in our world especially for those places where there is great unrest and tension.
We pray for those all around the world who are martyred and persecuted that you will keep them safe and from harm.
We pray for those who are bullied, pushed around, made fun of and rejected; that others will stop the bullying, stand up for them, love them and accept them.
Lord we thank you for hearing our prayers. We thank you for being with us always.
We thank you for your son Jesus, Amen
