Sunday Prayer

Gracious God, through all the trials and turmoil of life
through storms
dangers
fears
endings
sadness
brokeness
loss
illness
at the time of death
hold us in your embrace, sustain us with your grace

Loving God, through times of great joy in life
through births
growth
new seasons
rebirth
beginnings
recovery
health
wholeness
healing of mind, body, or spirit
hold us in your embrace, sustain us with your grace

God of our mothers and fathers
God of bread and wine
God of morning and night
God of water, sun, earth, air
God of all
We give you thanks for all the gifts of life.

God of all
Bless our lives
bless those we love
our pets
animals of kinds
all creatures
great and small
Help us to care for the earth, your own creation.

We ask this through the great love
of your son, our brother,
the vine, the branches,
the cup, the hand
our savior.

Amen.
