Prayers of the People

Leader: Gracious God, you are Lord of our beginnings and our endings and all that lies between.

People: We praise you for how you have poured out upon us blessing after blessing; for how you have reached out to us; for how you have come to us and how you have spoken to us.

Leader: Help us to live our faith in ways that bring honor to your name. We confess that we often fail to be your faithful people. Hear us as we individually confess our sins, repent and seek to draw closer to you.

People: Lord, hear our prayer, forgive and draw us close to you.

Leader: We give thanks for Christ who took our sins upon himself – suffering pain and death. It is with thanksgiving and praise that we rejoice in your resurrection and our salvation.

People: We pray for those who are persecuted around the world for faithfully sharing the gospel and living their faith. We lift the people of the Ukraine to you. Lord, grant all your strength and mercy.

Leader: We pray for all who are sick and grieving many kinds of loss. Hear our prayers for those on the prayer chain who have requested prayer. Care for their needs as only you can.

People: Lord, hear our prayers.

Leader: Today we pray for America and our leaders. Lord, be all who place themselves in danger for our care. We ask you to send holy revival to our land. Make us mindful of our many blessings.

People: Lord, hear our prayer.

Leader: We ask for your continued guidance and protection upon Alexander Chapel UMC. Make us good stewards of all you have entrusted to our care. Guide our church leaders and the mission you have for this church. During this time of Lent draw us near as we seek to draw close to you. Send us out into the world ready to serve faithfully

People: Hear our prayers and lead us. Send friends to join us in ministry. We ask you to guide our pastors. Grant them your strength and wisdom. Lord, speak through Pastor Ray today with your words of holy transformation as he brings the message. May hearts receive you holy hope.

All: Lord’s Prayer
