For Persecuted Churches

We pray for persecuted churches around the world. For the month of October we pray for the nation of India.

Heavenly Father, Christians and Christian churches in the India are suffering due to religious nationalism, persecution, and Covid-19. We lift them up in your Holy Name, asking for your mercy to surround them. We pray for the Christian churches in India to persevere through the power of the Holy Spirit. Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.

Prayers for Healing

May we who are merely inconvenienced
Remember those whose lives are at stake.

May we who have no risk factors
Remember those most vulnerable.

May we who have the luxury of working from home
Remember those who must choose between
preserving their health or making their rent.

May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close
Remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips
Remember those who have no safe place to go.

May we who are losing our margin money
in the tumult of the economic market
Remember those who have no margin at all.

May we who settle in for a quarantine at home
Remember those who have no home.

As fear grips our country,
let us choose love.

During this time when we cannot
physically wrap our arms around each other,
Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.

For Times of Social Distress or Conflict

Increase, O God, the spirit of neighborliness among us,
that in peril we may uphold one another,
in suffering tend to one another,
and in homelessness, loneliness, or exile befriend one another.
Grant us brave and enduring hearts
that we may strengthen one another,
until the disciplines and testing of these days are ended,
and you again give peace in our time;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
