Deacon’s Bidding Prayers January 23rd, 2015
The deacons of our diocese bid your prayers:
For all hearts to be open to see ourselves and others as beloved children of God, so we might live together in a just and open society. For an end to racism, sexism, ableism, and all the twisted and unjust ways of thinking that divide us.
For peace in the Middle East. For all those who stand in harm’s way in this region.
For an end to gun violence in our own communities.
For people and animals suffering from the extreme heat in Australia.
For the sick; for those with influenza, pneumonia, and other diseases that are widespread in the United States this winter, and for those who care for them.
For the land, water, and air that sustain life. For all those advocating for policies that preserve our environment.
For the unemployed and underemployed.
For the people of South Sudan, especially our sisters and brothers of the Diocese of Twic East.
