We offer our prayers through Christ, who is risen from the dead, who lives and reigns forever, and prays for us in heaven.
Through Christ, we pray for the church. (Pause for personal prayer) Let us be people of joy, living witnesses to the power of the resurrection and the good news of your grace and peace.
Through Christ, we pray for the earth. (Pause for personal prayer) From the dust of the damaged earth, raise up your new creation, full of beauty, wonder, and glory.
Through Christ, we pray for all nations. (Pause for personal prayer) Let the message of your saving power spread throughout the world: that the dominion of death is no more.
Through Christ, we pray for our own community. (Pause for personal prayer) Let our hearts and our arms be open wide as we go forth in love and service. May we greet others with hospitality and may they feel a sense of being at home in the church.
Through Christ, we pray for loved ones. (Pause for personal prayer) Give hope to those who wait for good news. Turn our mourning into dancing, and our sorrow into joy.
Even while we remain apart, we join all our prayers together in the one Your Son taught us,
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.
In His Cross I Glory
Go in the grace, mercy, and peace of God, the Father
the love of Jesus Christ, His one and only Son
and the fellowship of His Holy Spirit
both now and forever
