We extend our sympathy to, and remember in our prayers, the family and friends of Lisa Briggs, daughter of Don and Jane Goodpasture, on her death September 29, 2015.  Ask God to comfort them in their time of sorrow with the hope of eternal life.

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

For the Christian Church, that as Christís true Bride created from His wounded side, she may be a fit helper for Him by faithfully proclaiming His great salvation to a lost world, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For our Synod and our leaders, that we may ever pay close attention to the Lordís Word as attested to us by the apostles; and that by holding it sacred and gladly hearing and learning it, we may be kept from drifting away, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the International Lutheran Womenís Missionary League, with thanksgiving for the good work God has done for the Gospelís sake through them, that He would be pleased to bless their present and future labors for His Church, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the Holy Spiritís work in us, that He may lead us ever deeper into the repentant life, that we may live in the truth of our Baptism, resting daily in our Fatherís grace that we may walk in His ways, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For those who wrestle with besetting sins, that they may not despair of Christís grace, but in the midst of their weakness they may hope in His surpassing power to save them in His righteousness, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For our nation, that we may be granted devout and faithful rulers so that we may enjoy good government in Godís peace, and so that the Gospel may not be bound in our land but be freely preached to the blessing of all, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For husbands and wives, that they may serve one another as Christ has served them; for struggling couples, that Christís forgiving love may help them to grow in love for each other; and for those who have separated what God had joined together, that in repentance and faith they may know and live in Christís forgiveness, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the sick and suffering, remembering especially today those named above, that the Lord in His mercy would sustain them in faith in their trials, and that He would grant them health and healing in accord with His good and gracious will, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For those who give thanks this day for Godís kind mercy upon their lives, that we, too, would join them in blessing the Lord and not forgetting all His benefits, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the Bride, as she is united in flesh and blood with her Bridegroom at His altar, that as He holds fast to her this day, her many members may faithfully hold fast to Him, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For Godís grace to our brothers and sisters who now abide in the glory and honor of the crowned Jesus, let us give thanks to God, that we may be kept from neglecting so great a salvation and be granted a place among them, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

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