Finally, the Prayer of the Church for the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost:

Let us lift up our hearts and minds and voices to our God and Father in heaven and look to Him for the forgiveness of our sins and every good and perfect gift through Jesus Christ, our Savior.

Almighty and most merciful God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we give You thanks for all Your goodness and tender mercies, especially for the gift of Your dear Son and for the revelation of Your good and gracious will. Put away our sins from us, and guard us by Your Holy Spirit, that we not despise Your Word nor blaspheme Your name but live by faith as Your children. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

O God, in mercy You have called us by the Gospel, and by Your grace You keep us and Your whole Christian Church united in Christ Jesus in the one true faith. So guard and keep us by the preaching of this faith, and preserve Your Church in the unity of Your Spirit, that the blessing of Abraham may extend to the nations through Your Son. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Almighty and everlasting God, You desire not the death of any sinner, but that all people should repent and be saved through faith in Christ. According to Your divine and holy wisdom, break and hinder the counsels of those who defame Your Word through false doctrine and evil living. Enlighten them with the knowledge of the truth, that they may know the grace of Your Gospel and serve You in the peace and righteousness of faith. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

O Lord, our God, it is by Your Word and Spirit that Your Church on earth is called, gathered, enlightened and sanctified. Grant, therefore, that we and all Your people may truly serve You according to our callings. Bless our colleges and seminaries, and so raise up faithful preachers and teachers of Your Word to advance the Gospel of Your Son both at home and in distant lands. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

O Lord, we have sinned against You, and for our sins we surely deserve to die. But as Your Son has redeemed us from the curse of sin and death by His death upon the cross, so grant us to live by faith in His resurrection and His righteousness. And as surely as He lives, grant health and strength in heart and mind, body and soul, to all Your servants who are sick or suffering in various ways. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord God, heavenly Father, from Your hand we receive all good gifts, and by Your grace we are guarded from all evil. Grant us thankful hearts, that we live no longer for ourselves but unto You by faith in Christ, Your Son. As He loves us and has given Himself for us all, enable us to love one another and to render hospitality in Your name. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Father in heaven, pour out Your Holy Spirit on those who seek Your Son at His Table this day. According to Your tender mercies, grant that we poor sinners may worship You rightly by faith in Your Word, lay hold on Your forgiveness in the body and blood of Christ, and bring forth the fruits of love for all the members of Your Church. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Almighty God, unto You live all who depart from this vale of tears in the Lord Jesus Christ. We give You thanks for all Your servants who have finished their course in faith and now rest from their labors. Grant that we, together with them, may have our perfect consummation in Your eternal glory. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

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