Evening Intercessions

Evening Intercessions

God of abundant kindness, you show us mercy and save us from sin and death. In trust we pray: Lead us by the light of Christ, O God. 

Hold us in your infinite love, and protect all who are in danger this night.  

     Lead us by the light of Christ, O God. 

Help us to recognize the racism, prejudice, or disrespect that we show in little ways.  

     Lead us by the light of Christ, O God. 

Give peace to those who are troubled, fearful, or ashamed. 

     Lead us by the light of Christ, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God heal every ill and enrich us with the gifts of the Holy Spirit so that with freedom of heart we may pursue all things in Christ. Amen.
