Continue Praying for One Another

     Let us continue to be in prayer for one another – for those who are sick; grieving; recovering from injuries; waiting for medical treatments; those labouring for inadequate wages or seeking affordable housing; for those close to leaving this life; blessings for those who are feeling isolated still; for those who live with addiction and those who see no reason to live.

     Prayers for those running from wildfires, who have lost their homes, businesses and their sense of safety. We pray for safety and effectiveness for those on the ground and in the air who are fighting these formidable fires.

     We pray for those who have moved to a new place and are working to make it home, especially for those who have no little control over their care. We pray for those moving from independent living to long-term care. Grant them comfort, care, safety, and dignity.

     We pray for blessings for all those who bless us – store clerks, take-out servers, caregivers, healthcare providers, truck drivers, cleaners, neighbours, strangers and so many more. And we pray for our neighbours around the world.

     We continue to pray for our indigenous neighbours across Canada that the answers they seek will be given, that the recognition and dignity so long deserved would finally be given, and that concrete efforts for justice will be done. God, soothe the shattered and battered hearts of these your children. God, in your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
