Finally, the Prayers of the Church for the Ninth Sunday after Pentecost:

Let us pray for the whole people of God in Christ Jesus and for all people according to their need.

O Lord, our God and King, we bless and extol Your name forever. You are greatly to be praised, and Your greatness is unsearchable. We give You thanks that You have made Your glory known to us in the person and work of Your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ. He became flesh, died and rose again for us and for our salvation. Open the lips of Your people everywhere to speak of the might of Your awesome deeds, pour forth the fame of Your abundant goodness and sing aloud of Your righteousness. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Almighty God, Your Son walked on water to deliver His disciples from drowning, then proceeded on His way to the cross to redeem the world. As we live under His cross, remind us that it is through many tribulations we enter the Kingdom. We rejoice that our citizenship there is certain for His sake. In the midst of lifeís tempests, preserve us from fear or doubt. Strengthen our hearts in Christ with the certainty that You will deliver us in Your own time and way. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Heavenly Father, the psalmist rejoiced to meditate upon Your wondrous works, and Your own Son frequently devoted time to prayer and meditation. Within the distractions of life, teach us daily to devote time to hear Your Word, meditate upon it and speak it back to You in prayer. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Almighty God, in the flood, You demonstrated Your wrath against sin and also Your mercy in preserving Noah and his family, establishing a covenant with them and thus foreshadowing Holy Baptism. We thank You that, by water and Your holy Word, You have drowned our sinful nature and raised us up again as a new creation in Christ. Grant that we, who have been joined to His death and resurrection, might no longer live to sin, but live as those freed to be Your holy and forgiven people. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Almighty God, the people of Gennesaret brought their sick to Your incarnate Son, and as many as even touched the fringe of His garment were healed. Visit those in need of healing. Restore them to strength and health according to Your will, and by Your gracious visitation, sustain their faith and the hope of everlasting healing in Christ on the Last Day. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

O God of gods and Lord of lords, Your steadfast love endures forever. You continue Your creative work in providing daily bread for Your creation. You provide rain and snow to water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater. Provide, we pray, an abundant harvest. Deliver Your people from hunger and need, that they may rightly give You all thanks and praise. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Heavenly Father, You provide for all of our needs of body and soul. As You provide daily bread, we give You highest thanks that You give us Your Sonís body and blood in His Holy Supper. Prevent us from taking this gift of life lightly. Convict all who partake of the Sacrament today of their sin and need for Your Son, and fill them with joy through the promise that their sins are forgiven in Him. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Father in heaven, You name every family in heaven and on earth. We give thanks for our brothers and sisters in Christ who have finished their course in faith and now rest from their labors. Preserve us in the faith so that Christ might dwell in our hearts richly until that day when we join them around Your throne; for the sake of Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
