Jesus, teacher and healer, we give you thanks that wherever we go you are there.
Be with those sent out to share your good news in service, including through Canadian Lutheran World Relief and our partners.
Use us to support them with our resources, our prayers, and our encouragement.
Rejoice with them and strengthen them when they are welcomed.
Protect and shelter those who face opposition because of your name. Amen.
Thanks to Rev. Matthew Diegel, of Our Saviour’s-Immanuel Lutheran parish, Thunder Bay, ON, for contributing the CLWR prayer for the sixth Sunday after Pentecost.
