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

In peace, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For those who pursue righteousness, for those who seek the Lord and for those who yearn for joy and gladness in the presence of the Lord, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the riches and wisdom of the Lord, for knowledge of the Lord through His Word and for trust in His grace and favor, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For courage not to be conformed to the world but renewed in mind and spirit, for the many whom the Lord has made His one body, the Church, and for those who will know Him through our faithful words and works, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the victims of violence and oppression, for those who live with injustice and fear, and for all the nations and their leaders, that they may act for peace and promote godliness among the peoples, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the places where Godís people teach and learn, for teachers and students, and for a renewed sense of wonder at Godís creation and an appreciation for His wisdom, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For those who exercise the Keys of the Kingdom among us, for the faithful preaching and teaching of Godís Word, for the courage to witness the Word of truth in the world, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the sick and those who suffer, for the disabled, for the troubled of heart or mind, for the grieving and for the dying [especially for these servants of God: _____________], let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the faithful stewardship of Godís resources, for the faithful support of the work of the Kingdom, for the generous support of those called to serve us in the Lordís name, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

With thanksgiving to the Lord for St. Bartholomew, for prophets, apostles and the faithful in every age, let us commend ourselves and one another to the mercy of the Lord, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For all these things and for all other things as the Lord knows and wills for His people, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

Into Your hands, O Lord, we commend all for whom we pray, trusting in Your mercy, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
