Prayers of the People

We will move in our worship series from baptism to confirmation and Pentecost this Sunday. As we transition, we pause to offer time in prayer:

For wedding celebrations near and far, for the persistence of folks celebrating Gay Pride in the rain, for graduating seniors and their families, for new employment opportunities, for the celebration of the lives of our loved ones who have passed away, for the dreams of new ministries…Gracious God, we give thanks.

For families who grieve the loss of loved ones, for relationships that have been broken, for young people who feel uncertain about their futures, for families who suffer in the midst of flooding waters and violent winds…God of Hope, may we feel your healing and love.

For what else do the people of God pray this day?
