Proclaiming the Good News of God in Christ

Deacon’s Bidding Prayers June 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 peace throughout the world. We pray especially for peace in Iraq, Afgthanistan, Syria, South Sudan, and in our communities.

For an end to gun violence in our communities and in our schools, and for the will to set aside the things that keep us from living in peace.

For people in Nebraska still dealing with damage and injuries from last week’s storms.

For all those who homes, livelihoods, and welfare are already endangered by the impacts of climate change. For wisdom, courage, and compassion to respond appropriately to climate change now and in years ahead.

For farmers, ranchers, and all who livelihoods depend on a good growing season.
