Finally, the Prayers of the Church for the Fifth Sunday in Lent:

Let us pray for the Church of God, that our heavenly Father defend her and keep her faithful.

Lord of the Church, protect Your flock from the attacks of Satan; use her to proclaim Your Son, who is the source of eternal salvation for all who obey; enable her to do Your will; and lead her to say with Mary, “I am the servant of the Lord, let it be according to Your Word”; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Let us pray for pastors, for church workers and for all the people of God, that we may serve our Lord according to His will.

Gracious Father, You have baptized us into Your Son and so into His body. Because we have been sanctified through the offering of His body once for all, teach us to say with our Savior, “I have come to do Your will, O God.” Grant us humble faith that offers our lives as servants of You and all people, knowing that even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for us; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Let us pray for those who have been placed in positions of authority in our civil government, that evil might be thwarted and the good promoted among us.

Lord of the nations, grant Your guidance and care to those who rule us as Your representatives, especially Barack, our president; our Congress and Supreme Court; our governor; our legislators; our judges; and all whom You have given authority over us. Lead them to govern according to Your will for the benefit and protection of all people; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Let us pray for those who suffer because of disease, injury, injustice, slavery, hunger and sorrow, that they receive our Father’s comfort and care.

God of compassion and mercy, with Your promises comfort those who suffer. Grant them patience, strengthen them with faith and deliver them from their afflictions. Free those who are in bondage, heal those who are sick and provide for all who are in need. Grant to all of us endurance, patience and trust in every time of suffering; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Let us pray for those who remain outside of the Church, that the Holy Spirit would grant them repentance and faith in Christ.

Almighty God, because it is Your will that all be saved, turn the hearts of those who do not know You by faith. Show them their sin, bring them to You in repentance and grant them a confident trust that Your mercy has sanctified them through the offering of the body of Jesus once for all; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

For grateful hearts, that we receive God’s gift of daily bread with thanksgiving.

Heavenly Father, You formed and still preserve Your creation, providing for the needs of all people. Bless the fruits of the earth, the arts, and all useful industry and commerce among us. Prosper those who labor, provide employment for those without jobs and defend those who serve in the armed forces. Preserve us from selfishness, fill us with the joy of giving and enable us to use Your gifts for the good of all; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
