God of hope, who brought love into this world, be the love that dwells between us.

We pray for all who mourn the loss of loved ones. Especially those who embodied your love and mercy to us so well: Terry Herzog and Bush 41. And all who must cope with the loss of precious ones this time of year.

We pray for all who are facing illness, surgery or disease. Bring healing and comfort and may the hands of the caregivers and medical professionals serve with your wisdom and compassion.

God of hope, who brought peace into this world, be the peace that dwells between us.

Hear our prayers for all who are affected by violence, war, injustice or natural disaster.

God of hope, who brought joy into this world, be the joy that dwells between us.

Hear our prayers of celebration for the gift of new life, new relationships, new jobs, new hope. May we live gratefully remembering that everything we have is a gift from you.

God of hope, the rock we stand upon, be the center, the focus of our lives always, and particularly this Advent time.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
