I believe in God, the Father almighty,                                                                                                                             

creator of heaven and earth.                                                                                                                                                 

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,                                                                                                         

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,                                                                                                                          

born of the virgin Mary,                                                                                                                                              

suffered under Pontius Pilate,                                                                                                                                          

was crucified, died, and was buried;

the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body,                                                                                                   

and the life everlasting. Amen.

PRAYERS OF INTERCESSION                                                                                                                                                    

As we celebrate Christ embodied in human form, we pray for God’s blessing on the church, the world, and all of creation. A brief silence.

God our rock and deliverance, do not let your church be shaken. We trust you never abandon your promises to the most vulnerable among us. Give your church wisdom and empathy in its varied ministries. God of grace, receive our prayer.

God our hope and refuge, you placed the fish in the sea. Guide our care of oceans and all creatures that live in them. Hold us accountable for actions that endanger water sources and the people who depend on them. God of grace, receive our prayer.

God who proclaims judgement and offers mercy, be a model to the leaders of our nation and the world. As they lead, may they follow in your way of justice and truth. God of grace, receive our prayer.

God who cares for the suffering, care for survivors of assault and sexual abuse and sustain all who minister to them. Keep safe any who live under threat of violence, those living in poverty, and any among us who are ill or in pain. God of grace, receive our prayer.

God of resurrection and new life, as the first disciples shared the good news, empower us and this faith community to be open to your call. When we are uncertain of your call, assure us. When we have strayed from your ways, redirect us. God of grace, receive our prayer.

God who holds the saints against your tender bosom, we trust you welcome them into your care. Comfort those who grieve, even as we place our hope in your salvation. God of grace, receive our prayer.

Knowing the Holy Spirit intercedes for us, we offer these prayers and the silent prayers of our hearts in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
