Prayers of the People

(Lord, you provide comfort to us when we mourn. You know our grief and our heartache. We remember the times of joy and long to return to those days, yet  when we look to you, we see hope for the future.. Only through your love can we be released from our sadness and sorrow. Help us to see through our tears that you will lead us through the dark times into your light.

We ask for your healing touch on those who are suffering from illness.   For those who are lonely or afraid, grant peace and a calm heart  and a friend who will bring cheer.  Christ gave his all for the world. Help us to give what we have to make the world the good place you created it to be.

For Providence we ask your blessing and guidance as we go through our summer missions with youth, adults, and children alike and help this church be a beacon to our immediate community  and beyond.

Show us that every touch of your grace is a gift, not to be rejected or received lightly. Your healing power feeds  and revives us  and makes us whole.  We thank you for staying right with us as we try to figure out your purpose for us. In the name of Jesus who taught us to pray…) “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 debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
