Gracious Lord Jesus, whose presence at Creation as the Father’s Word & Holy Spirit crafted Paradise, bless those who rely on the water and shore for livelihood and recreation.
Please dispel the gloomy haunts of the Satanic world and the rebellion of humankind so that all water of life will be a remembrance of the Sacramental water of Baptism which recreates us as Your new creatures.
Send us out to assist in calming waters and easing the burdens of life for neighbour, family member and stranger. O Lord Jesus, we worship You in Spirit and in Truth. Amen.
Thanks to Rev. Todd Hoeffs for contributing our prayer for the fourth Sunday after Pentecost
