O God, creator and redeemer of humankind, this day we bring to you all the cares and concerns of our hearts. Look now on those who cry to you for help from every corner of the earth. You alone are able to satisfy our deepest needs. As we go to our places of work and service today, go with us. Protect us and support us in the work you call us to do. May your peace, your love and forgiveness and the power of your Holy Spirit work in us and through us to your glory. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
Loving Father, we come to you this day seeking healing for the wounds and illnesses of those around us, our souls, and our own illnesses as well. O Great Physician, examine us through the powerful lens of your love, and heal all your see of our brokenness or malice. We give you thanks for your healing power and for restoring our passion and for refueling our resolve to serve you always and in all things regardless of any setbacks or obstacles we may face. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
Lord God, we come to you this day yearning for a new beginning. Reveal yourself to us in this hour, restore and renew our lives and bind us once again to yourself in love, so that our work is begun and ended this day in loving service to others. Open our eyes to the needs of others and inspire us with your compassionate Spirit to share your love in Jesus name. In His name we pray. Amen.
Gracious Lord, your Son Jesus Christ has called us to know you and serve you. In commitment to our faith journey, help us be aware if the needs of our neighbor. Help us to be alive in your Holy Spirit so that we will put our faith to work through caring concerns for the least and the lost. Prepare us for the healing help you call us to give this day. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
Holy Lord, your Son Jesus suffered on the cross, and we know that no one in this world can escape suffering. Yet the cross is a suffering that we may or may not choose. It is a free decision which is a sign of Jesus love bearing witness of God’s love in our hearts. Help us to choose the cross in our daily living so that the very love of God is shared with others freely and openly. We pray for your blessing on the National Gathering of Via de Cristo that is happening today in a webinar, for the delegates and their respective secretariats, as well as all the visitors who attend. In his holy name we pray, Amen.
