Evening Intercessions

Evening Intercessions

God of the covenant, heaven and earth proclaim your glory. In hope we pray: Ignite our hearts with your love, O God. 

Awaken us to wonder at the circuit of the stars, the mighty waters, and the luminaries of heaven.  

     Ignite our hearts with your love, O God. 

Help us to listen to your Word, and make our lives fertile and fruitful.  

     Ignite our hearts with your love, O God. 

Guide efforts to address the coronavirus with competence, equity, and justice.  

     Ignite our hearts with your love, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God bless us, protect us from evil, and keep us blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
