Tuesday Prayer Requests (Commemoration of Walter Rauschenbusch, Washington Gladden and Jacob Riis)

Father, we pray for your holy Catholic Church;
That we all may be one.

We pray for our friends in Christ:

 

 

Grant that every member of the Church may truly and humbly serve you;

That your Name may be glorified by all people

  • Asia Bibi (prisoner for Christ)
  • Persecuted Christians in Tanzania

We pray for all bishops, priests, and deacons;
That they may be faithful ministers of your Word and
Sacraments.

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for:

We pray for all who govern and hold authority in the nations of the world;
That there may be justice and peace on the earth.

  • Illinois flood victims

We also pray for the US states of:

Give us grace to do your will in all that we undertake;
That our works may find favor in your sight.

Have compassion on those who suffer from any grief or trouble;
That they may be delivered from their distress

  • Arlene (stomach bleeding)
  • Mary (pancreatic surgery)
  • Chris (battling serious chest congestion on top of cancer)
  • Susanna (pain dizziness, kidney trouble), also for reunion with son Raymond
  • Helen and Kevin (need God’s peace)
  • Sasha (dog severely injured in a fight)
  • Jennifer (health issues), her father (dementia)
  • Ben’s parents (financial difficulties)
  • Cheryl (gallbladder surgery)
  • Gary (knee surgery)
  • Valencia (stroke)
  • Candace’s neice (drug overdose, refuses rehab)

Give to the departed eternal rest.
Let light perpetual shine upon them.

  • Barbi’s grandmother (RIP+)
  • The firefighters killed in Arizona

We praise you for your saints who have entered into joy;
May we also come to share in your heavenly kingdom.

Let us pray for our own needs and those of others.
Let’s give thanks for:

  • Mona’s recovery
  • Ruth’s recovery
  • Mary’s new job and being able to move home

Almighty God, by your Holy Spirit you have made us one with your saints in heaven and on earth: Grant that in our earthly pilgrimage we may always be supported by this fellowship of love and prayer, and know ourselves to be surrounded by their witness to your power and mercy. We ask this for the sake of Jesus Christ, in whom all our intercessions are acceptable
through the Spirit, and who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

The prayers are from The Book of Common Prayer.
