Deacon’s Bidding Prayers May 10th 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:

The deacons of our diocese bid your prayers:

For wisdom, courage, and compassion to govern our response to climate change now and in years ahead.

For the election to be held in Nebraska on Tuesday: for wisdom and guidance for the voters and humility for those running for public office, so that the well-being of all people might be remembered.

For the Nigerian schoolgirls who have been kidnapped and for their families and friends.

For a healing of divisions and a world in which no one is seen as less of a child of God because of their gender, ethnicity, race, disabilities, or sexuality.

For a good beginning to the growing season, for seasonable weather, and for a safe planting season for those working in the fields.

For an end to gun violence and hate crimes in our nation, and for the will to let go of the things in our culture that lead to them.
