Prayers for the Week

Loving and gracious God,
We raise our prayers this week of thanksgiving for the lives of those who are at rest now with you. Their journeys of faith have inspired us to continue on ours.
Our prayers of thanksgiving are also for the abundance of our tables this week. May we continue to be led to give from our abundance. We pray for safe travel for those returning home and to school.
We rejoice with Al on his return home, and ask for continued strength for him and for Palmer as they continue their recovery.
We hold Heather and her family closely in prayer as she faces testing in this upcoming week.
We ask for prayers of strength for Laura’s mom, Nancy, Bill, and Ryan as they continue on their journeys of healing.
We celebrate with Sandy and Pete in the next steps for their grandson, Sean.
Continue to be present with our Sufi brothers and sisters in Egypt who have faced terror as they gathered, just as we do, to lift prayers to you.
