  • Prayers for the Hillsboro community, following a fire and explosion. May God comfort the family and friends of the victims, send hope to the first responders at the scene, and give peace to the community.

  • Prayers for Pr. Jon Bull (St. Paul, Westerville) at the death of his father.

  • Gracious God, grant peace among nations. We especially pray for Palestine, Israel, Guatemala, Venezuela, Ukraine, and Armenia. We pray for wisdom and compassion for all leaders to seek a swift end to violence. Send comfort and protection to all civilians caught in the midst of these conflicts. Cleanse from our own hearts the seeds of strife: greed and envy, harsh misunderstandings and ill will, fear and desire for revenge. Make us quick to welcome ventures in cooperation among the peoples of the world, so that there may be woven the fabric of a common good too strong to be torn by the evil hands of war. In the time of opportunity, make us be diligent; and in the time of peril, let not our courage fail; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
