Hymn #377 | It Is Well with My Soul | VILLE DU HAVRE

Gathering Together

the ressler family

What mysteries there are in God’s world! 

We, so sophisticated, stand in awe at the wonders of the natural world. 

We look at the tiniest of seeds and wonder what will happen 

From that small seed will grow a large shrub. 

Although we consider our gifts to be small and insignificant, 

God will use our gifts in miraculous ways. 

Praise the God of small seeds and mighty power. Amen. 

 

God, you are the gardener of all creation. 

You planted this world with the seeds of your love 

and grow them with your faithfulness. 

We are your harvest; we find our meaning and  

sustenance in you. 

May our minds listen to you calling, 

may our hearts be attuned to your will, 

may our feet follow you in the world, 

through Jesus, the Word become flesh. Amen.

How Great Is Our God | Chris Tomlin

Prayers of the Community

the ressler family

Lord our God, 

who created all things 

and promises us an eternal realm, 

hear our prayers of intercession, spoken and unspoken. 

 

We pray for peace. 

Eternal God, you sent us a Savior, Jesus Christ, 

to break down the walls of hostility that divide us. 

Send peace to the places where greed, pride, and anger 

turn nation against nation, race against race, church  

against church. 


We pray for the leaders of the church and the nations. 

Mighty God, sovereign over all, 

give the leaders of the church and the leaders of nations 

the vision of your kingdom, that they may lead us with  

justice and goodwill. 


We pray for the earth, God’s creation. 

God of creation, you made all things in your  

wisdom and love. 

Grant us all a reverence for the earth 

that we may use its resources rightly in the  

service of others 

and to your honor and glory. 


We pray for those who are in pain in body and mind. 

Merciful God, you bear the pain of the world. 

Look with compassion on those who are sick. 

Stand with those who sorrow. 

Show them hope by your Word; 

bring healing as a sign of your grace. 

Let us pray for friends and families. 

God of love, 

bless us and those we love, our friends and families, 

so that by drawing close to you we may be drawn closer  

to each other. 

 

All these things we ask in the name of Jesus Christ, 

who died for us and rose for us, 

who reminds us of your saving grace, and taught us to pray: 

 

Our Father, who art in heaven, 

hallowed be thy name. 

Thy kingdom come, 

thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 

Give us this day our daily bread. 

And forgive us our trespasses, 

as we forgive those who trespass against us. 

And lead us not into temptation, 

but deliver us from evil. 

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, 

forever. Amen.
