Proclaiming the Good News of God in Christ

Deacon’s Bidding Prayers February 14th 2014

Jesus Stained Glass Religious Stock Image 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 hearts full of compassion for others, ourselves, and other living things.

For harmony among all people in our nation and around the world. For healing of hearts and minds so that the perception of diversity results in appreciation rather than fear or hatred.

For people dealing with ice and snow in places that are unprepared to cope with it. For people who work outdoors in wintry weather, and for travelers.

For Californians facing severe drought conditions and shortages of water for drinking and irrigation. For people around the world suffering from extreme heat and drought.

For people in England and Wales dealing with flooding, winds, and high seas.

For those who are bullied, abused, or dismissed by others.

For peace and protection and an abiding sense of God’s love for the people of South Sudan, and especially for our sisters and brothers in our partner Diocese of Twic East.
