Lord God, you call your people to honor those in authority. Help us to elect trustworthy leaders, participate in wise decisions for our common life, and serve our neighbors in local communities. Bless the leaders of our land, that we may be at peace among ourselves and a blessing to other nations of the earth; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen
May 1 – May 7
O loving God, to turn away from you is to fall, to turn toward you is to rise, and to stand before you is to abide forever. Grant us, dear God, in all our duties your help; in all our uncertainties your guidance; in all our dangers your protection; and in all our sorrows your peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
May 8 – May 14
God Almighty, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ; Grant us, we pray to be grounded and settled in your truth by coming of the Holy Spirit into our hearts. That which we know not, reveal; that which is wanting in us, fill up; that which we know, confirm; and keep us blameless in your service; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
May 15 – May 21
God of earth and air, water and fire, height and depth, we pray for those who work in danger, who rush in to bring hope and help and comfort when others flee to safety. Whose mission is to seek save, serve and protect, and whose presence embodies the protection of the Good Shepherd. Give them caution and concern for one another, so that in safety they may do what must be done, under your watchful eye. Support them in their courage and dedication that they may continue to save lives , ease pain and mend the torn fabric of lives and social order; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
May 22 – May 28
Merciful God, you give us the grace that helps in time of need. Surround them with your steadfast love and lighten their burden. By the power of your Spirit, free then from distress and give them a new mind and heart made whole in the name of the risen Christ. Amen
May 29 – June 4
O God full of compassion, we commit and commend ourselves to you, in whom we live and move and have our being. Be the goal of our pilgrimage, and our rest by the way. Give us refuge from the turmoil of worldly distractions beneath the shadow of your wings. Let our hearts, so often a sea of restless waves, find peace in you, O God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
