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.
Day of Pentecost: Give thanks and a sigh of relief, for no matter where we are, how we feel, what we are doing, where we hide or what circumstance we find ourselves in, God’s Spirit is with us and working in us – for our comfort, guidance and encouragement.
Holy Trinity Sunday: Give thanks for our baptism in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit for being marked as children of God, welcomed to the body of Christ and set on our faith journey surrounded by the care and support of others.
Pray for clarity of mission and the confidence of faith enabling each of us to be present in the world sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, bringing hope, serving our neighbor, working for an end to hunger and poverty, and discerning where we are most needed.
Pray that in all we do we are not driven by fear, rather we live with the assurance that God loves and values us and has given us important life-giving good news to share.
We also pray for…
The family and friends of the Rev. John Rosenberg.
