Proclaiming the Good News of God in Christ

Deacon’s Bidding Prayers January 16th, 2015

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 the people of Baga, Nigeria, Paris, and all places where terrorism has taken lives and continues to threaten the peace.

For an end to gun violence in our own communities.

For the land, water, and air that sustain life. For wisdom and compassion to prioritize the things that are essential over short-term gain. For all those advocating for policies that preserve our environment.

For peace in the Middle East. For all those who stand in harm’s way in this region.

For people who are ill with the Ebola virus and for those caring for them. For public health officials, troops assigned to west Africa, and for the scientists working on effective medicines or vaccines.

For the people of South Sudan, especially our sisters and brothers of the Diocese of Twic East.
