Finally, the Prayers of the Church for the Second Sunday in Lent:

Because the Christ suffered, was slain and, after three days, rose again for us, let us pray for our sisters and brothers in Christ and for all people.

For all who have been baptized, that we never cease to rejoice in the covenant our Father has established with us, that we be granted faith to trust His promises, that we be prepared to receive Christís body and blood in repentant faith, and that we walk before God Almighty and be blameless, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For our Christian lives, that our Savior rebuke us when necessary; put Satan behind Him; set our minds on the things of God; and enable us to deny ourselves, take up our crosses and follow Jesus, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For boldness to confess Jesus as the Christ, that the Holy Spirit teach us who Jesus is, prepare us to suffer for the faith as our Father wills, grant us steadfastness, and fill us with rejoicing when we have the privilege of being persecuted for the Messiah, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For those who suffer, those who have little to live on and those who are without homes, that our heavenly Father provide for their needs, bring an end to their struggles, give us hearts that are ready to help everyone in need, and grant them and all of us peace with God through our Lord, Jesus Christ, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For those who are sick, those who are grieving, those who are dying and those who are injured, including those named above, that they be granted faith in Jesus, patience through their afflictions, relief from their sorrows and the assurance that suffering leads to a hope that does not disappoint, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For those who, like Sarah, desire but have not been granted children, that our gracious God comfort them with His promises, provide them with patience and, if it is His will, grant them the desire of their heart as He did for Sarah, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For Lutheran schools, for teachers and principals, for directors of Christian education, and for those preparing to serve as teachers and DCEs in the church, that our Father bless and guide those who learn, teach, supervise, prepare and study, so that children are strengthened in faith and prepared for lives of service to their Savior. Grant that workers find fulfillment in their callings as they care for Your children, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the government, that those to whom God has entrusted civil authority use it as He intended, defending life, upholding the rule of law, preserving rights and working for the good of all people, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For those who live without faith in the Christ, that the Holy Spirit empower the Church and each of His people to speak boldly the message that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us and reconciled us to God. We ask that You turn unbelieving hearts to trust that Jesus has saved us from the wrath of God, 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.
