Pray for the Philippines on Sunday, January 17, 2010

Lectionary Text and Prayers for the Philippines: John 2:1-11

God of Love, we thank you for signs of your presence in our everyday life and the details of your world. We ask you to help us to be servants of the abundant life your Son, Jesus, came to bring for all. We pray specifically for our partners in the Philippines today. May they be signs of your presence in their context and agents of transformation. We pray especially for those pastors and leaders of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines who are walking with the poor in their communities and seeking to empower them for your service. Watch over and protect them. Help them to taste the new wine of transformation for which they are working so hard, in Jesus name. Amen 

(Prayer by Bob Shebeck)
