Proclaiming the Good News of God in Christ

Deacon’s Bidding Prayers November 29, 2013

November 2012 016-medium  

 

 

 

Each week, the deacons of the Diocese of Nebraska invite everyone to join us in praying for the needs, hopes, concerns, and joys of the world beyond our immediate circles of family, friends, and parish. Deacons are invited to send biddings for prayers for the world to deaconbetsy@windstream.net by Thursday noon for each week’s gathering of biddings.

The deacons of our diocese bid your prayers:

For a desire and will for peace to grow in all the world.

 

For peace and security in our homes and communities this Advent season. For an end to gun violence.

 

For the people of the Philippines in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan. For those in our own nation recovering and rebuilding after recent storms.

 

For eyes to see and hearts to care for those who are hungry, cold, or alone as winter settles in. For the work of Downtown Episcopal Outreach and outreach efforts across our diocese.

 

For people who work to bring light and joy into the lives of others through music, art, cooking, decorating, and all forms of creative work. For the many knitting, quilting, and sewing ministries in our diocese.

 

For all those who work for justice, freedom, peace, and a sustainable planet.
