Sheep Prayer

Good Shepherd,

Listen to your sheep as we baa…

Hear our calls of praise – you are God, you are our Shepherd.

Hear our songs of thanks – you lead us, you save us, you give us all we need

And hear our dirges of woe

-we need you Jesus

-we need your touch on hearts that are crying in greif

-we need your hand to calm our anxious fears and doubts

-we need you, Lord, how we need you!

 

Good Shepherd, send your Spirit to be your rod and staff upon our lives.

-protect us

-direct us

-and help us build the Kingdom you desire

-help us desire the kingdom you are building

All as we pray… our Father…

Prayer for Firefighters, EMS, and First Responders May 2016

Lord of Wind and Flame,

You who call us to put on the armor of God

You who call us to wait patiently for your guidance

You who call us to care for strangers made neighbors at each encounter:

Bless these Firefighters, EMS, and First Responders.

As they put on their gear

Breathe upon them your Spirit of Peace.

As they wait for instructions and directions

Breathe upon them your Spirit of Wholeness.

As they go forth into houses and highways of despair

Breathe upon them your Spirit of Hope.

Burn in their hearts as love while they put out flames of disaster.

Beat within their hearts while they resuscitate travelers on the way.

Blow gently ahead of them so that at each incident and accident your presence is felt comforting and bringing peace.

All this we ask in the name of the Savior

who responded to our call, our need, our desperation, Jesus Christ.  Amen.

“Hands” (Call to Worship) June 2014

Lord Almighty, it was your hands that worked that clay and made us.

Creator Hands.

                   Lord Jesus, it was your hands that were nailed to that ugly tree.

Savior Hands.

                   Lord Spirit, it is your hands that mold our hearts and renew our spirits.

Redeeming Hands.

God of hands, we don’t have much.

I give you my hands.

                   Take them, use them,

Use our hands to dig into the dirt and renew the garden.

                   Use our hands to heal the brokenness in the world.

Use our hands to wipe away tears.

                   God of hands, we don’t have much.

I give you my hands.
