Prayers of the People, E4A
O Lord, Sovereign God, Redeemer, Holy One,
we come to your sanctuary carrying burdens that feel
too great to bear.
Our hearts have been broken by the careless words
of those who lash out from unfathomable pain
at any and all who are in their path.
Help us to heal one another
in ways that are honest and respectful and kind.
Be present, we pray,
with all who are struggling
to stand firm in the faith,
to do what is right,
in the face of vitriol and hatred.
Grant courage, Lord,
to bear the storms that threaten to overtake us.
Help us to trust in your presence.
Open our eyes to your image in your children
Make us covenant-carriers, God,
that we might dance with joy
from our churches,
into our streets,
and all the way home,
singing your praises in gratitude
for your steadfast love and faithfulness.
