Loving God, you guide us by your gracious Spirit amid all the challenges that this life presents us with.
Direct our choices by your Spirit. Keep us faithful in prayer for all your saints; calling us to help our neighbours in the various trials they face.
May we be a people who proclaim your Gospel in the things we say and the things we do, in and through Jesus Christ, the healer of the world. Amen.
Thanks to Rev. Aaron N. Schnell, of St. Matthew’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Spruce Grove, AB, for contributing CLWR’s prayer for the thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost.
