each week

Our God,
Each week, as a community of faith,
we celebrate the privilege and the responsibility
of intercessory prayer;
each week, we compose our initial list of names and circumstances
from situations of which we’re aware;
each week, we listen to the concerns and celebrations
shared by those we love and add to that list;
each week, we pause to wonder at how ever-changing circumstance
creates an ever-new list;
each week, we’re intentionally mindful
of those we don’t know to put on our list—
don’t think to put on our list;
each week, we are grateful for a community of faith
that cares and loves and prays
and that will pray for us when we have that need,
and each week, we name our gratitude to You,
consistently present,
ever-loving,
answering our prayers,
loving us in and through all circumstance.
Amen.
