Finally, the Prayer of the Church for the Third Sunday after Epiphany:

As people granted faith to know that the Christ has come to proclaim the year of the Lordís favor and that He has made us members of His body, let us pray for Godís mercy on all people.

For the Holy Spirit, that we be granted faith and so rejoice that the Scriptures have been fulfilled in our hearing; that we, like our Lord who was in the synagogue each Sabbath, make a habit of being in Godís house to hear His promises and feast on Christís Supper; and that we earnestly desire His higher gifts, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For a deeper appreciation of the gift of unity, that our Father forgive us for acting like some of His people are more important than others; that He lead all of us to realize that we have been baptized into one body of Christ; and that He grant us faith to use the Spiritís gifts to care for each other, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the Office of the Ministry, that as God has appointed apostles, prophets and teachers, He strengthen, guide and provide for those who preach Godís Word to us; that He enable them to help us understand that Word as the Levites helped the Israelites; and that we marvel at the gracious words of God, that they speak to us as the people of Nazareth marveled at Jesusí words, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For Lutheran schools, teachers and students, that our Father bless those who administer, teach and learn in our early childhood centers, elementary schools, high schools, colleges and seminaries; that He use these educational institutions to prepare His people for fruitful service in His kingdom; and that He lead many to serve as pastors, teachers, deaconesses, DCEs and workers in His Church, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the mission of the Church, that the Holy Spirit use missionaries throughout the world and each of us in our daily vocations to proclaim good news to the poor, liberty to the captives and fulfillment of the Scriptures; and that He grant repentance and faith to unbelieving hearts, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For those who govern our communities and country, that they be given wisdom and courage to lead with truth and justice; that they follow Godís will rather than manís whims; and that our Father grant us a willingness to support them with our prayers and encouragement, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For those who suffer from the calamities of nature and the evils of mankind, that the God of mercy heal the injured, comfort those who mourn, shelter those who are homeless and bring aid to all who are in need; that He bring the hope of Jesus to situations that seem hopeless; that He give us hearts that reach out in love; and that He grant to all relief workers courage in danger, skill in difficulty and compassion in service, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For all mothers with child, including those in difficult circumstances, that God protect the unborn, care for mothers, show to all the value of each child and give the body of Christ a heart that provides refuge for women who are scared and children who seem unwanted, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the comfort of those who mourn and the care of those who need healing, that the Great Physician mend the bodies and uplift the spirits of all who need His compassion, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For all who receive Christís body and blood, that these gifts forgive our sins, unite us as one and enable us to rejoice together and suffer together as the body of Christ, 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 Your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
