Prayers of the People

We pray in our weekly Kitchen Table gatherings for those places in our own lives and in the world that are in need of God’s healing, reconciliation, and hope. We also offer prayers of thanksgiving for the places that are experiencing redemption and new life.

You’re invited to share your prayers in the comments section below.

For prayer concerns, we hope you’ll follow the form of prayer inspired by O-So-So, the Korean song we’re using for our time of prayer in Lent:

For relationships, for families that hurt one another, for the violence inflicted too often in the name of God.  Come, O Lord Jesus, reconcile your people.

For prayers of celebration:

For inspiring music.  God who is Grace, we give thanks.

For what else do the people of God pray?

  1. For Joelle Tucker, from New York, who is a part of the Melvin G Talbert Leadership Institute. She has been missing for more than a month.

    For those that sometimes find it difficult to share their faith, or just not sure how.

    For Wellspring Women’s Center (in Oak Park) and their guests – especially the little ones who just need diapers.

    Come, O Lord Jesus, Reconcile Your People.

    For people who spring into action when there is a need.

    For UMCOR and all those who support and work with them.

    For our church…and open minds – God who is Grace, give thanks!
