Finally, the Prayers of the Church for the Fourth Sunday of Easter:

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

O God of peace, who has brought again from death the great shepherd of Your sheep by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip Your Church this day with everything good, that we may do Your will, working in us that which is pleasing in Your sight through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Lord, in Your mercy: hear our prayer.

O God of peace, as the world has many false shepherds who seek to lead Your people astray, help us to know our true Shepherd’s voice and listen only to Him; have mercy on all those who have been deceived; open their hearts once more to Your truth, that they may be returned to the safety of the Church’s fold. Lord, in Your mercy: hear our prayer.

O God of peace, as Your Son gave His life for the sins of the whole world, let His voice be heard by those held in prison, that they, too, may know of His forgiving love and be brought into His flock; if they have been imprisoned for doing good, let them not lose hope or despair of Your care. Lord, in Your mercy: hear our prayer.

O God of peace, as our Good Shepherd takes up His lambs onto His shoulders in the waters of Holy Baptism, sustain all those who reside in nursing homes with the truth that He will safely bear them through the latter years of this life. Lord, in Your mercy: hear our prayer.

O God of peace, as Your Son has loved, help us to live in His love; keep us from hurting one another in word or deed; rescue those who suffer harm in their own homes, and grant repentance to all those who raise their voices or hands to abuse those You have given them to love. Lord, in Your mercy: hear our prayer.

O God of peace, as Your Son of His own accord has laid down His life for His sheep, give us confidence in His continued care, that we may not doubt but believe that He will never fail us; strengthen the sick and suffering in this truth, and according to Your good and gracious will, grant them help and healing. Lord, in Your mercy: hear our prayer.

O God of peace, as You gave Your Son to be our Shepherd that He might lead us to the green pastures and still waters of life, help us to listen to His voice as He invites us to eat His body and drink His blood this day, that we may know His peace now and forever. Lord, in Your mercy: hear our prayer.

O God of peace, as Your Son laid down His life and took it up again to prepare a place for us in Your house that we might live forever, comfort those who grieve with the truth that our departed brothers and sisters truly are at home with You. Lord, in Your mercy: hear our prayer.

Into Your hands, O Lord, we commend all for whom we pray, trusting in Your mercy; through Your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
