All: Glory, glory; hallelujah!

CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER:                                  (Unison)

God of great love, we offer our gratitude for our family and our friends, and for friends who are family. We are ever thankful for this church and our church family gathered here. We pray for the safekeeping of all whom we love and we pray for your healing presence for all those who are ill whom we name in our hearts. We pray for our nation and its leaders. May they seek your wisdom and strength and may they lead us in the ways that make for peace. We pray for our world; especially do we pray for those who live where fighting is a way of life and where children carry guns instead of teddy bears. Let it be that all of us might be instruments of your peace and love. God of us all, let us answer words of anger with patience and let us respond to disagreements with compromise. Above all, let us speak the language of faith, especially when we travel roads of uncertainty and fear. We offer our praise and our prayers to the One whose footsteps we strive to follow, Jesus the Christ. Amen.
