Prayers of the People: A Responsive Prayer

Leader:  Gracious Lord, you are Lord of our beginnings, our endings and all

that lies between.  

People: Lord, we praise you for you have poured out upon us blessing after blessing.  While we were yet sinners, you reached out to us and you continue to speak to us  through your Word, prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit.

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 that you took our sins upon yourself – suffering pain and death. It is with thanksgiving and praise that we rejoice in Christ’s resurrection and our salvation.

People: Oh God, help us to commit ourselves to you more fully than ever before.

Leader: We pray for those who are sick and for those grieving many kinds of loss. We ask you to meet their needs as only you can.  

People: Lord, hear us as we lift those who have asked for prayer on the prayer chain.  We ask for your blessing upon those in our community who are in need of a special touch of your grace today,

Leader: Today we pray for America and its leaders.  Lord, send holy revival to our land.  Be with all who place themselves in dangerous places for our safety and grant their families peace.  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. 

People: Lord, hear our prayers and lead us.

Leader: I ask you Lord to continue to mold Pastor Ray and Pastor Marjory to be your faithful pastors. We ask you to bring the anointing of your Holy Spirit upon Pastor Hank as he proclaims the message today. We make our prayer in the name of Jesus our Lord as together we pray the prayer Christ taught his disciples when he prayed . . .  

All: Lord’s Prayer 

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done; on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
