Proclaiming the Good News of God in Christ

Deacon’s Bidding Prayers January 3rd 2014

light-shines

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 all people in bitter cold and snow who are traveling, working outdoors, or without adequate shelter this week.

For people affected by floods in Brazil and by the heatwave and power outages in Argentina.

For peace and protection for the people of South Sudan, and especially those in our partner Diocese of Twic East.

For the Church, that we might strengthen our ministries to the poor and outcast and forgotten.

For Michael Duffy of Trinity Cathedral, chosen to be one of The Seven young adults in The Episcopal Church learning more about diaconal ministry.
