Prayers of the People for Pentecost 20 / Ordinary 27

God has promised to hear our prayers.  Therefore we offer our concern for the world God loves, the Church God calls, and all people according to their needs, saying, “We pray in hope,” and responding, “Make all things new.”

[Brief pause]

That all people may experience the extravagant welcome of God that has been give to us, and that we may share that extravagant welcome with everyone we meet, and everyone we know, we pray in hope,
Make all things new.

That political leaders would remember the people they are called to serve, and that the people of Papua New Guinea and Syria, who are facing impossible situations, may be assisted by our efforts at bridge building and justice making, we pray in hope,
Make all things new.

That Lilly, Mark, Becky, Thomas, Rachel, Sam, Pascal, Mary and Michaela may be strengthened in faith by the waters of Baptism, we pray in hope,
Make all things new.

That we, the members of St. Philip’s church, may embrace our calling to support Lilly, Mark, Becky, Thomas, Rachel, Sam, Pascal, Mary and Michaela as we all rediscover God’s baptismal promise, we pray in hope,
Make all things new.

That the healthy may reach out to the sick, the rich may serve the poor, the powerful may offer themselves to the weak, and the full may share with the hungry, so we all may be part of the coming of the reign of God, we pray in hope,
Make all things new.

That we may cling to the promise of God’s love in the best and the worst of times, we pray in hope,
Make all things new.

We offer these spoken prayers, our silent prayers, and the prayers for which we have no words, to you, loving God, in the name of our brother Jesus.
Amen.
