Lord our God, 

May nothing separate us from YOU today. Help us to do YOUR will this day and always. Let YOUR Word strengthen us in faith, patience, and hope. 

YOU love justice and establish peace on earth. We bring before YOU the disunity of today's world: The violence, and the many wars, which greatly impact the people of the world, the human greed and injustice, which breed hatred and strife. 

Because YOU have justified us, we have Peace with YOU LORD. It is a peace that only YOU can give and it cannot be destroyed. It is sealed and guaranteed in YOU. 

Send Your Spirit and renew the face of the earth: Teach us to be compassionate towards the whole human family: Strengthen the will of all those who fight for justice and for peace; lead all nations into the path of peace; and give them that peace which the world cannot give. 

Be with all those who call upon YOU, pleading for help in our time. We specifically pray for: 

  • The family and friends of Rose
  • Fred
  • Jan
  • Our Open Door Third Thursday event, 2/21
  • And any other need we say aloud now or in our hearts. 

May we reflect your peace and hope to a world that so desperately needs your presence and healing. 

Thanks be to you God, for YOUR indescribable gift of salvation. To YOU be glory and honor, on this day, and forever. We pray all this in Jesus' name, Amen.
