Our Joys, Our Concerns

Eternal God,
In the beginning, you created the heavens and the earth. Through your son, Jesus Christ, you invited that creation back into relationship with you. We recognize that everything we have comes from you. We give thanks for your many blessings and the people with whom you have created us to flourish. We lift up to you this day these people listed here; friends, family, loved ones, and many more. For those hurting, offer comfort. For those who are anxious, provide peace. For those who are lonely, give your presence. We are your people and you are our God. May we always remember and see Your love and grace in our lives, even in the midst of difficult seasons of life. Remind us that the same God who created the heavens and the earth is the same God that walks with us this day. And, as we go forth through life, may we also share that love and grace with those we meet.
It is in the mighty name of Jesus the Christ we offer this prayer. Amen!
