Pastor Prayer: Prayers of the People

Pastor: O Lord, with our lips we offer you praise. In our reading, listening, meditation and prayer, grant that in every pursuit of the soul we may hear your voice and delight in your promises. May we commend all things to your gracious hand and trust your sure reward in Christ. 

People: Lord, receive our praise. Grant us ears to hear and hearts ready to receive. Lead us to trust fully in you.

Pastor: Have mercy on us, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy, blot out our transgressions for the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who was crucified for our sins and raised for our redemption. Hear us as we confess our sins and repent.

People: Lord, hear as we confess our sins and repent. Create in us a clean heart. Renew a right spirit within us. 

Pastor: The sacrifices of God — a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart — O God, you will not despise. Grant that we may live lives that are honorable and pure before you. Deliver us from those things that would keep us from seeking your wisdom and grace.

People: Hear our prayers and teach us your ways that we may be your faithful disciples.

Pastor: O Lord, restore to us the joy of your salvation and uphold us by your willing Spirit. Teach us faithfulness in the practice of generous giving and helping those in need. Preserve us from selfishness, which denies help to others, as well as foolish pride that seeks recognition for doing what is right. Lead us to serve joyously in your name.

People: Make us your people; ready to be light to the darkness. Give us your loving compassion for the world.

Pastor: With the confidence that Jesus came to restore us in body, mind and spirit; we lift up our silent request and praises.  – –PAUSE —   Lord, we give you thanks.

People: Hear our prayer for those suffering for their faith. We pray for our nation, our soldiers, those serving on the front line during Covid and all suffering from the storms and cold. Lord, be with your church. Be our source of protection and holy wisdom. Hear our prayers for America. Lead us to turn our hearts to you. We ask you to bring spiritual revival and heal our land.

Pastor: Hear our prayers and grant healing according to your wisdom and grace. Sustain and strengthen our faith in time of trial. Preserve us from doubting you when we are confronted with pain and challenges. We place our trust in your holy care.  

People: Into your hands we commend all mentioned by name in the service today, trusting in your mercy, through faith in Christ. Lord, hear our prayers as we give thanks.

Pastor: Gracious Lord, I ask you to anoint Pastor Ray with your Holy Spirit as he proclaims your message this day.  Let his words be your words of hope and transformation.

People: Lord, we pray for our pastors. Grant them your wisdom and strength that they may lead Alexander Chapel faithfully. 

Pastor: We make our prayers in the precious name of Jesus our Lord and Savior.  Amen.
