We come, O Lord, praying with confidence, trusting in Your mercy to supply us with all things needful to us and to our salvation.
Almighty God, everlasting Father, You saw your people of old in their despair and raised them up to hope by placing Your Spirit upon them. Join us together with the communion of saints in Christ, even though we must for a time stand apart. Raise us up from our weariness and grant us Your Spirit, that we may be strong in faith, bold in witness, holy in life and steadfast in hope. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.
O eternal Lord, Your Son has given us the new birth of water and the Word and planted faith in us, that we might be Your own children. Bless Your Church in Your mercy, that she may believe without fear and love without limit even now. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.
O God of power and might, You hold in Your hand all the might of man. Give to us good government and faithful leaders who will heed Your Word and pursue righteousness and justice. Bless and defend us against all destruction, especially from this deadly pandemic, and teach us to be patient and faithful citizens of this land, using ourselves and our resources wisely for the good of all. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.
O merciful Lord, grant Your compassion, patience and endurance to all who suffer illness, who are troubled in mind or whose time on earth is short. Hear all our prayers, especially on behalf of all those we name in our hearts. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.
O Lord, God Almighty, through Your Son You have kept the promise of the ages and rescued us from sin. You have made us alive in Christ forever. Sustain us in this hope, that we may endure the tests, trials and troubles of this life and be ready when our Savior comes again in His glory; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
