Prayer for Others

Steps of Lincoln Memorial

Merciful father,

To you be all glory and honor, because you created us, provisioned, and protected us in spite of our many transgressions.

If that were not enough, from the beginning you planned for our salvation through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our great role model and redeemer.

Forgive us  for focusing mostly on ourselves when so many of the blessings in this life are provided for us by our families, friends, and even complete strangers, who value our presence, our life, and our health through no merit of our own.

Thank you for the invisible people in our lives who grow our food, build our homes, and take care of us quietly doing jobs that we cannot do for ourselves.

Bless their lives, their families, and all that they hold dear. You alone know their names, their dreams, and they abilities. Let them never feel taken for granted. Send your Holy Spirit into their lives and bless them. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
