Proclaiming the Good News of God in Christ

Deacon’s Bidding Prayers December 13, 2013

Adventwreath  

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 those without adequate shelter in cold weather. For those who work outdoors in the winter and for travelers.

For generous spirits and the will to share Christ’s love with those in need at Christmas and throughout the year.

For people who are hungry and for people who work to provide food for them.

For the people of Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, the Maldives, Micronesia, and other island nations coping with the effects of rising oceans on their land and culture and planning for the future.

For the victims of human trafficking and for those working to open our eyes to their existence so that we might end all forms of slavery.

For all those known and unknown who have been killed in military actions around the world and by gun violence at home.
