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

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

Almighty God, You invite us to die to sin each day through our Baptism and to rise to new life with You, through Your life-giving Son and Spirit. Knowing that You desire the repentance and conversion of all, cause us to rejoice in Your gifts and testify to Your goodness that welcomes every outcast and sinner into Your kingdom for the sake of Jesus. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Almighty God, as You watch over Your Church and all Christians with Your holy angels, continue to guard us from all evil, that no affliction or temptation would cause us to depart from the places where You deliver Your gifts of faith and forgiveness: the altars, fonts and pulpits where You make and keep us Your own. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Almighty God, all authority that exists derives from You. Bless those whom You have placed into positions of public authority, that by their good works they might bring about justice, defend the helpless, punish evildoers and provide for the welfare of all people. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Almighty God, by Your mercy lavished upon us in Holy Baptism, You have made us Your children. Because You desire to draw all people to Yourself eternally through Your Word and Sacraments, use us, Your children, as lights in the world to cause others to see our hope and good works and desire to know You, our merciful Father. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Almighty God, everything that exists has its source in You, our creator. Bless those whose vocations are to study Your creation in the fields of scientific and medical research, that by their efforts we might exercise loving dominion over Your creation. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Almighty God, Your Son humbled Himself to the point of shameful death on the cross for our eternal good. Until the day of His return, You provide for all our needs of body and soul. In mercy, abide with those who suffer afflictions of mind or body, who suffer pain, sorrow, depression, anxiety or other maladies. Remember especially those named above and all who have requested our prayers. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Almighty God, You have given Jesus the name that is above all other names, at which we bow the knee and confess that He is our Lord and God. At His Supper, give us reverent devotion and inspire in us true worship of Him who comes humbly hidden beneath the forms of bread and wine to give us His body and blood for our forgiveness, life and salvation. 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, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.
