Living God, we
praise you for filling us with the knowledge that in you we do
find safety and security. In Jesus Christ, you have given us
the confidence to believe that although the worst can happen,
your love and your care for us remains as strong and as constant
for ever. Jesus demonstrated that rejection, ridicule and even
the risk of death did not stop him from proclaiming your love,
your mercy and your everlasting life and power. We approach you,
O God, confident in your constant love and protection. We praise
you, we trust you, we adore you. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen

1 Corinthians 13
Ushers, please help us to love
through our tithes and offerings.
Nurturing God, You remind us that faith without love is meaningless.
We present these gifts with love. We rejoice in our ability to
share. May this moment of giving warm our hearts and stir our souls
so that we remember to act consistently out of love in the name of
Jesus. In His name, we pray. Amen.

Responsive Prayer of the People
(Pause for silence after each
intercession. Specific requests may be added)
Leader: Merciful God,
your love for us makes us bold to join our prayers
with all who need your help.
We bring our prayers to you:
For those who suffer pain;
For those who struggle with limits of body and soul;
For those who are satisfied with less than the life
for which they were created;
For those who know their guilt and their need
but do not know of Jesus;
For those who know that they must shortly die
and for those who cannot wait to die.
ALL: Come, Redeeming God,
take all these sufferings upon yourself and transform them.
Be merciful also to us, who offer these prayers,
so that we might enter the sufferings of others
and become agents of your healing love,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord. AMEN
