Congregational Prayer

This week in our prayers we especially remember to pray for:

  • Those directly affected by wildfires—those who’ve had to be evacuated, those who’ve lost their homes, those fighting the fires, those deciding where best to put fire fighting resources.
  • The many refugees in the world fleeing poverty or conflict.
  • The farmers among us, as the busy harvest season is here.
  • All of us, that we may have the wisdom and humility to ask for help when we need it.

God, hear our prayers . . .
