Hymn #79

Holy God, We Praise Thy Name


Gathering Litany

Pastor Teer 


Alleluia, Christ is risen. 

The Lord is risen indeed, alleluia. 

Let the peoples praise you, O God. 

Let all the peoples praise you. 

 

Astonishing God, 

you give us a vision of the heavenly city,  

the new Jerusalem, 

your home among mortals on earth. 

All people and nations will stream to your city 

where they will find nourishment, healing, and peace. 

Even now your blessing shines upon all the earth 

to help us see a larger vision 

of your loving care for all creation. 

And so you call us to move beyond our comfortable circles, 

and into unfamiliar places, 

as we seek to share your dream 

of a world made new in Christ. Amen.

Prayers of the People


Set free from captivity to sin and death, we pray to the God of resurrection for the church, people in need, and all of creation. 

God of new life, open your church to the unexpected ways your Spirit is at work. Guide bishops, pastors, and lay leaders in their visioning, partnership, and planning. Surround us with your peace. Lord in your mercy, 

Hear our prayer. 

Give a vision of increase and abundant harvest for farmers, laborers, and gardeners who are beginning their growing season. Join their efforts with the goodness of creation to feed all living things.  Lord in your mercy, 

Hear our prayer. 

Give safe haven to those seeking healing, liberation, or peace. We pray for... Create places filled with hospitality where hurting people find your loving presence and wholeness. Lord in your mercy, 

Hear our prayer. 

Shine your wisdom and peace among nations. When those in power seek to assert their dominion over others, confound their ways and make them yield to your humble authority. Lord in your mercy, 

Hear our prayer. 

Uphold the world of ministries and organizations in our communities who assist people experiencing homelessness, citizens returning from prison, and all marginalized people. Accomplish your will through their efforts. Lord in your mercy, 

Hear our prayer. 

Assemble your people at rivers, streams, and fonts, where we remember our baptism and welcome others into the communion of saints. Gather us with those who have died when we meet together at your river of life. Lord in your mercy, 

Hear our prayer. 

In your mercy, O God, respond to these prayers, and renew us by your life-giving Spirit; through Jesus Christ, our Savior who taught us to pray...
