Prayers for the Season

Epiphany of Our Lord, January 6, 2020

God of light, redeem the lives of those who flee from oppression and violence. Move our hearts to compassion for the weak and needy that we might offer welcome, kindness, and refuge.  

Hear us, O God.
Your mercy is great.

Baptism of Our Lord, First Sunday after Epiphany, January 12, 2020

Faithful God, you are Lord of all. Be with your people who are imprisoned, who are held in immigration detention, and who wait in refugee camps. Take them by the hand and keep them in your strong care. Lord, in your mercy—

Hear our prayer.

Second Sunday after Epiphany, January 19, 2020

Redeeming God, your salvation reaches to the end of the earth. Incline your ear to hear the cries of refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants who seek kindness and welcome. Through your steadfast love and faithfulness keep them safe. As they turn to you in trust, put a new song in their hearts. Lord, in your mercy—

Hear our prayer.

Third Sunday after Epiphany, January 26, 2020

Healer of all, thank you for sanctuary and safety. Uplift all who live where fear governs and evil divides. Give refugees, asylum seekers, and all who seek safety a path toward hope and new life. Lord, in your mercy—

Hear our prayer.
