Evening Intercessions

Evening Intercessions

Gracious God, you supply us with strength for the Christian life and promise to send us your Holy Spirit. In confidence we pray:

Let us rejoice in your salvation, O God.  

Send nourishing rain and bountiful sun for the growth of fruit trees, gardens, and crops.  

     Let us rejoice in your salvation, O God.  

Heal those who suffer burns, and protect firefighters and first responders.  

     Let us rejoice in your salvation, O God.  

Give light to the eyes of those who are weakened by illness, aging, or grief.  

     Let us rejoice in your salvation, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May the peace of Christ reign in our hearts, now and always. Amen.
