Prayers for April
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.
Pray that we resist judging the offerings and contributions of our brothers and sisters in Christ and that, instead, the Holy Spirit moves us to encourage and affirm one another in being generous in sharing what we have — time, money, resources, wisdom, skills and spiritual gifts — with our neighbor.
Palm Sunday Pray that, in the telling and retelling of the story of Jesus’ passion, we capture a sense of God’s boundless, sacrificial love for us that renews and deepens our faith.
Easter Day There’s good news for everyone — Christ is risen! Alleluia! Through the life, suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus, God has broken every human restraint of sin, hopelessness and death; we are set free to live life anew with joy, gratitude and love. Give thanks and praise to God!
We can all relate to the apostle Thomas, who questioned Jesus and asked for proof that God was alive and well in the world. Pray that the Holy Spirit will fill us with faith in God’s loving presence and activity in the world, even when we are doubtful, curious, weak or confused.
