Finally, the Prayers of the Church for Reformation Sunday:

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

Lord God, heavenly Father, You are our mighty fortress. In You we find our strength, our protection and our peace through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Through the shield of faith, protect us from the flaming arrows of the evil one, knowing that with the sword of the Word of God the gates of hell cannot prevail against us. Now, we pray, help us in our every need. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

The old evil foe has sworn to harm us, to deceive us and to lead us away from You, O Lord. His attacks are strong from without, his inroads into the Church are often subtle. We cannot fight him or resist him in our own strength. We cannot conquer him with our good works or with our own power. On earth is not his equal. We praise You for sending Jesus, who fights for us. Through His holy cross, Jesus has forever conquered Satan, toppling his kingdom of darkness and setting us free. Protect Your Church, purchased by the blood of Jesus, from Satanís attacks. Continue to raise up faithful pastors, warriors in Your Kingdom, who proclaim Jesus and His cross as our only hope and joy. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

All have sinned and fallen short of Your glory, O Lord. Good works could not avert our doom. But as Your strong Word cleaved the darkness with light at Your creation, it also bespeaks us righteous at the font. It is here where You made us Your own, granted us faith and clothed us with Your robe of righteousness. Cause us to return to our Baptism each day through the confession of our sins, holding firmly to Your promise that we are justified by faith apart from works of the Law. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

O Dayspring from on high, splendor of light everlasting, in Your love for us You came into this world, swallowed by the eternal night of sin and death, as the Light of light. Through Your Church, continue to shine the Gospel into this present darkness. Remove all that would obscure Your light from us: the temptation to turn Your gift into an earned wage, the urge of trusting the false light from within instead of the true light from above, and the despair of unbelief that comprehends neither light nor hope. Send out Your light and Your truth in Your Church, and let them bring us to Your holy hill. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord, You have charged Your Church with the work of angels, to proclaim Your eternal Gospel to all who dwell on earth, to sing good news to every people, tribe, language and nation. Let Your Word not come back to You empty, but accomplish that which You desire, leading forth in joy all who trust in You. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

O Bread of life from heaven, You have given us life. Your truth has set us free. As we feast upon Your body and blood, we rejoice in the freedom of sonship that comes through the forgiveness of sins. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

All honor and glory are Yours, Almighty Father, with the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
