Easter 6B intercession 10 May 2015 evening

This prayer included long pauses between each sentence, to allow the congregation to reflect, in their own ways, on the themes and images they brought to mind. When I used this, I told the congregation not to worry if they felt they were wandering off topic, but to allow themselves to be guided by the Holy Spirit.

All embracing God

embrace us with your love, that we may be filled to overflowing

teach us to reflect your image in your church, that it becomes a place where all are included

show us how to live lives grounded in Christ as our Lord, that we may share the good news of God’s love

Christ our Lord

remind us of our baptisms, the sign and seal of the grace and love of God

unite us in love with all your people, all God’s children

give us the right words at the right time to speak of all you have done for the world

Enabling Spirit

stir us to action, move us to speak, shift us to work for the kingdom of God

show us those who are voiceless, that we can speak up for

show us the helpless, we can give help to

show us the lost, with your help we can find

Almighty God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit

together, one in relationship, make us one with you and with each other.
