Worship Ministries has assembled prayers, litanies, and articles for fall worship planning. We pray that these resources will be a blessing to you!
We bless you, Lord, for the privilege of growing in grace and knowledge.
Help us to be hungry for your truth, and to mature as your dearly loved children.
Keep us faithful, and safe us from false and distorted teaching.
By your Spirit, lead us into all truth
in the name of Jesus, the way, the truth, and life. Amen.

Lord, our God,
Help us to be agents of your peace in [town, city, school, region]
We pray for all who work
to provide housing,
to resist racism,
to provide fruitful employment,
to provide safe schools and places of training and learning,
to develop artistic gifts,
to provide health care,
to provide spiritual care,
to minister to refugees,
to bear witness to your love for us in Jesus Christ…
May we be agents of your peace and renewal,
That all your children may flourish.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
[A Prayer for the Common Good, #276, Lift Up Your Hearts]
