Prayers of the People | Fourth Sunday in Lent (Year C)

From Feasting on the Word – Worship Companion, edited by Kimberly Bracken Long.

In peace let us pray to the Lord saying,
Lord have mercy.

For the church throughout the world,
that all Christians may embody the reconciling love of Christ,
let us pray to the Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For the nations of the world and its leaders,
that all may dwell in peace
and that justice may be tempered by mercy,
let us pray to the Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For the planet Earth, God’s gift to humankind,
that all may share wisely its resources
and conserve its riches for our children’s children,
let us pray to the Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For our enemies,
that we may regard them with the reconciling love
made manifest in Christ,
let us pray to the Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For those who are sick or in trouble,
for the defenseless, the weak, and the poor,
that they may be restored to wholeness of life and livelihood,
let us pray to the Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For the lost,
for those who have abandoned God, friends, or family,
and for those who have never known such love,
that they may come to know the joy of love’s embrace,
let us pray to the Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

Loving God, hear the prayers of your people
for the sake of our world,
and our Savior Jesus Christ, through whom we pray.
Amen.
