Gracious God, we give you thanks for all the blessings of this life –
for family, friends, 
for home and food, and work
for the coming Spring, 
for warmer days ahead
for the gift of your son 
who leads us in this life.

Loving God, we offer up these prayers of concern this day –
for those struggling to rebuild lives
from natural disasters
from human disasters
from failed economies
from illness 
from_______________
may the power of your Holy Spirit
bring new life, new hope.

Creator God, fill us with nourishment
the kind that only you can offer.
Fill us with hope
fill us with kindness
fill us with gentleness
fill us with your love.
May we be your living love.
Amen.

Creator God, we come before you-
Asking prayers for those who
Lead
Nations
Cities
Churches
Homes
As you poured out your love in the Word

May we hear your word and follow

May the words of our mouths and

The meditations of our hearts lead us

To you. 


Holy One, we come before you –
a people broken into
shards of lives
sick,
poor,
hungry
hidden by the limitations of our eyes.
Help us to see as You see

As you poured out your love in the Word

May we hear your word and follow

May the words of our mouths and

The meditations of our hearts lead us

To you.


God of Mercy, we come before you –
Seeking to live as you command, but often

Failing, and thus we are torn by
Cries of despair
Anger
Power
Control
lost to foolishness and

Stumbling blocks

despite your love in the Word

Help us to hear your word and follow

May the words of our mouths and

The meditations of our hearts lead us

To you.


Gentle God, we come before you-
Giving thanks for all our blessings
the gift of life
hope
faith
love
family
friends
all we care for this day
Help us to be Your Hands

Incline Your heart, O gracious God, and teach us to love
O Christ, our rock and our Redeemer.

Amen.
