Prayers for May

The synod encourages congregations to continue praying during Sunday worship for the renewal of the church by praying for congregations of the Southeastern Iowa Synod, other synods, and people throughout the world.

May 8

In our unity with God through Jesus Christ, we ask the Spirit to heal our divisions and stir us as Christians to encourage one another in our faith, service and witness.

Day of Pentecost In a world of diverse languages, cultures and traditions, we give thanks to God that we are drawn together by the Holy Spirit as one community in Jesus Christ, called to live in one faith and one baptism.

May 22

Trinity Sunday In our wondering about the mystery of our triune God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—we pray for God’s patience, mercy and forgiveness and ask that we continue to grow in faith that is certain of God’s love through Jesus Christ.

May 29

We remember before God the needs and infirmities of all people, especially people we have ignored, rejected, passed by or treated as outsiders.
