Names of Jesus prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, you are the bread of life,
let us feast on you and find nourishment for our souls.
You are the light of the world, let us follow you out of the darkness.
You are the door, let us enter the Father’s presence in your name.
You are the good shepherd, let us rest in your provision.
You are the resurrection and the life, let us find true life and victory in you.
You are the way, the truth and the life, let us love you with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.
We pray this in your name,
Amen.

We adore you and offer our highest praise,
for all your acts of creative power and wisdom,
for all your gifts of grace, for the daily bread you provide your people.
Lord, in your mercy, …(Hear our prayer)

We ask you to continue to impact and change our heart and minds,
as we live out our lives as followers of Jesus.

Where we find trouble and turmoil in this world, in our homes and families,
in our community, dwell in our midst
and remind us of your constant presence and unlimited power

Compassionate Lord, we pray for you to give healing to the sick,
relief to the suffering, comfort to the grieving, and peace to the dying.
Answer the prayers of your people,
especially those whom we’ve named before you on the prayer cards and prayer list.
Deliver them from their afflictions, sustain them in their struggles,
and give them patience in their adversities.
Lord, in your mercy, … (hear our prayer)
Amen

A Prayer of Confession link

Merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed.
We have not loved you with our whole heart and mind and strength;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
In your mercy, forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are,
and direct what we shall be, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your holy name.
Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer link

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those
who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom
and the power and the glory
forever and ever.
Amen

Blessing link

May the Father’s hand
keep you from stumbling,
the footprints of Jesus
give you confidence to follow,
and the fire of the Spirit
keep you warm and safe
in your walk with God this day.
Amen
