Prayers of the Faithful

As a community of faith, we listen for God's voice and strive to follow it. May God hear the voices we now raise in prayer.

  • That the community of Christ's followers may follow him in seeking repentance and forgiveness, we pray to the Lord.

  • That on this World Day of Prayer for Vocations, that all Christians may discern and live out their vocations, and that men and women may be open to the call to life in the service of God and the church, we pray to the Lord.

  • That leaders everywhere may guide their people with humility, wisdom, courage, and example, we pray to the Lord.

  • For those intentions we ask at this time...., we pray to the Lord.

  • For all of our brothers and sisters in Christ who have died, may they rejoice in the presence of the Good Shepherd, we pray to the Lord.

God our shepherd, you promise your people the gift of your Spirit. May your Spirit hear and receive these prayers we make to you, in the name of your risen Son, Jesus the Christ.

Meditation Hymn

Be Still For the Presence of the Lord, D
00:00 / 05:02

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.
Amen.

The Lord's Prayer

Look upon your flock, kind Shepherd,

and be pleased to settle
