 In faith, let us pray to the Lord, saying…

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

We sing praises t you, O Lord,
For, by your favor, we are healed.
In the midst of difficulty, we cry out to you,
And your saving presence lifts us to safety.
In the midst of our tears and sorrow,
We look to the hope of your everlasting joy.
Be our helper, almighty God,
That we may sing your praise and not be silent.

Silence

Jesus is the light of the world
May the whole earth know his brightness.

We pray for the world,
For the many people who do not yet know you,
For those who scoff or think lightly of the precious name of Jesus,
And for those who have not listened to your teaching.
Lord Christ, you are the Holy One of God.
One who heals the sick and delivers the oppressed,
And your words give life to all who listen.
May all nations encounter your healing and life-giving presence
And follow you alone.
I invite your prayers for specific countries and individuals in need of the Gospel.

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

We lift our voices with your worldwide church,
And we praise you that you have bought us at great price, Lord Christ.
Strengthen our weak wills, merciful Lord,
That we might run hard the race set before us.
Grant us the grace of discipline and self-control,
And help us to fix our eyes on the imperishable joy set before us.
We want to follow Paul’s example ,
To become servants of all,
That we might share the gospel and its blessings with all people.

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

We pray for the poor, the oppressed, the hungry, and the sick;
The broken and despairing;
The lonely and those afflicted by doubt and fear.
We think of orphans and widows, prisoners and slaves,
Those struggling with addiction and pain.
The burden of the world is too great for us,
And the groaning of suffering too much for us to bear!
Have mercy on all that you have made, O Lord!
In your infinite compassion and wisdom,
Proclaim your rule of righteousness to the ends of the earth.
Lift up those who are bowed down,
Set their feet on sure ground,
That many would see and put their trust in you.
For you alone are the hope of the afflicted,
You alone are the one who restores all things.
I invite your prayers for all who suffer in body, mind, or spirit.

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

We thank you for your church.
How beautiful is the bride of Christ, stretching back throughout the ages and across the world, crossing boundaries of time and place!
We remember now those who have gone before us, those who have died in the faith, trusting that they are in your care.

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

We lay the upcoming week before you, Lord God,
And commit all our cares and concerns into your hands.
We put our trust in you alone, Lord God.
Transform us, O Lord, to be a people who clearly and brightly reflect the light of our Lord Jesus Christ, Through whom we humbly pray, Amen.
