Prayers for Proper 24 – Year B (BCP)

Readings: Isaiah 53:4-12; Psalm 91:9-16; Hebrews 4:12-16; Mark 10:35-45

King of all the earth, Creator of the universe, Holy Triune God,
From everlasting to everlasting, you are Lord.

Teach us your name, O Lord, and we will call upon you in our distress;
The Lord is with us in times of trouble.

You bind us to yourself in love, and you bring us to honor;
The Lord is with us in times of trouble.

You deliver us and protect us, for you have been our refuge and habitation;
The Lord is with us in times of trouble.

Answer us when we call, O Lord, and show us your saving hand;
The Lord is with us in times of trouble.

This is our God.  Praise him, all you people, for he is our help and our salvation.  I invite you to add your own praises to the Lord.


You are worthy, Holy God, to receive all our praise.  We worship you in the glory of your perfect Trinity and ask for grace to steadfastly believe and proclaim your unity.

We pray for your holy catholic church;
Teach us to serve others.

We pray for all bishops, priests, and deacons;
That they may be faithful ministers of your Word and Sacraments.

You, Lord Christ, bore the iniquity of the world;
Thank you for serving us.

Be pleased, O Lord, that many have been accounted righteous;
Draw all people to your saving grace.

I invite you to add your own prayers for the worldwide church, remembering especially the Apostles youth as they seek you this weekend.


Creator of the earth, you spoke the world into existence and sustain all things by your life-giving word.  Consider the toil and sorrow of the people of the earth and, in your compassion, have mercy on the world.

We pray for all who govern and hold authority in the nations of the world;
That there may be justice and peace on the earth.

We pray for the poor, the persecuted, the sick, and all who suffer; for the refugees, prisoners, and all who are in danger;
Relieve and protect them, O Lord, and grant them eternal hope in you.

Teach us how to rightly steward the gift of your creation;
That the resources of the world would be shared for your honor and glory.

I invite your prayers for the needs of the world.


God of all love and peace, we come to you in faith, offering you access into every area of our lives.

Thank you for the gift of your living and active word;
Pierce our souls with your truth.

You discern the intentions of our hearts, and no part of our lives remains hidden from your sight;
We draw near to your throne of grace.

You, Lord Christ, understand our weaknesses and the nature of our temptations.
Grant us mercy and grace in our time of trouble.

We look to you, Lord of all, mindful of our helplessness;
Glorify your name in the midst of our need.

I invite you to cast all your cares and concerns on the Lord, remembering that He cares for you.


We praise you for your saints who have entered into joy;
May we also come to share in your heavenly kingdom.

We believe in you, Lord Christ.
We cry out to you, Father God.
We receive your witness, Holy Spirit.
Abide with us as we abide in you this week and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

    Hey Marissa!
    This set of prayers ministered to my heart very much today. I am so excited to find these prayers, i miss them very much since I am no longer at CotA. Thank you for serving the body of Christ in this way. It is a beautiful thing, because I sense that it flows out of you spending precious time with Him.

    Thank you! and also for the info about NFP 🙂
