Opening Hymn “Today We All Are Called to Be Disciples” #696 vs. 3
Pray justice may come rolling down as in a mighty stream,
With righteousness in field and town to cleanse us and redeem.
For God is longing to restore an earth where conflicts cease,
A world that was created for a harmony of peace.
INTERCESSIONS IN TIME OF CRISIS Moravian Book of Worship
God of mercy, God of comfort, we come before you in this time of difficulty, mindful of human frailty and need, confused and struggling to find meaning in the face of suffering.
We are grateful that even as we share in the joy of Christ Jesus, we can also share abundantly in comfort in the midst of suffering.
For victims of fire or flood, storm or earthquake, famine or disease,
For those whom disaster has left homeless, injured, or bereaved,
For refugees and those separated from loved ones,
For the family and friends of George Floyd and for all victims of racism’s oppression and violence.
For all who are in danger, trouble, or anguish,
We ask the presence and strength of your Spirit.
Hymn “Lord, We Cry to You for Help” #760 vs. 4
Lord, exalt your holy name. Conquer evil by your pow’r.
Let your righteous will prevail.
reign victorious ever-more.
Give all who suffer the love that bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
We know that suffering produces endurance, endurance produces character, character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because your love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit.
Be the support of all who give their strength, their skill, and their stamina in a ministry of mercy.
Open our hearts in generosity that we may be partners in their commitment to bring relief.
Where tempers flare and a partisan spirit provokes new hostility, raise up people who have patience and restraint.
Where indifference allows crisis to deepen and suffering to go without relief, awaken deliverers who have zeal and strength.
We pray for those who are engaged in making important decisions in this time, for those who report on these events, and for those who shape public opinion.
Give them the courage to speak out and the restraint to listen, that together we may discern the truth and hold aloft its light.
Take away the temptation to trust in human power and military solutions, and give us the courage to be your servants to the community of nations.
Direct all governments in the way of peace and justice, that your will may be known and done among the nations. Deliver us from the sins which lead to war and conflict, and strengthen within us the will to establish righteousness and justice on the earth.
We pray for those who are suffering and can make no sense of tragedy.
Help them to turn to the One who embraces us in our lives –even Jesus Christ, who lived and suffered among us.
There is no one who is righteous, not even one, for we have all turned away from you. Make us aware of our common need of a Savior, and remove from our hearts the pride, ambition, and greed that would lead us to enslave and demean other people.
Have mercy on your whole creation. Hasten the day when the kingdom of the world shall become your Kingdom, and by grace make us worthy to stand before you. Amen.
Scripture Mark 4:35-41
L: Mindful of the need to end racism and embrace diversity as a reflection of our Creator,
P: For the elimination of discrimination in living patterns, public education, employment, political jurisdiction, transportation, and in the Moravian Church throughout the Northern Province.
L: For eyes that might see more clearly and hearts that might open more deeply in our efforts to address personal and institutional racism and racial inequity in our community.
P: To overcome ignorance, indifference, resentment, and bitterness with regard to race in both private and public life.
All: For courage to work for and proclaim the establishment of a beloved community where all are welcomed and valued in our communities.
Hymn “God of Grace and God of Glory” #751 vs. 1 &4
God of grace and God of glory, on your people pour your power;
Crown your ancient Church’s story; bring its bud to glorious flower.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage for the facing of this hour,
For the facing of this hour.
Save us from weak resignation to the evils we deplore;
Let the gift of your salvation be our glory evermore.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage serving you whom we adore,
Serving you whom we adore.
