Dear Loving God,

We thank you for bringing us together to worship you as a faith community today. We offer our prayers to you for the people who need your mercy, healing and loving intervention in various ways.

Merciful God, we are very sad for the tragic crash of the Malaysian Airlines plane on the Ukraine-Russia border a few days ago. Nearly three hundreds passengers and crew on board died. May all the dead rest in peace. We uphold the family members who have lost their loved ones in this tragedy May your spirit comfort them and heal their broken heart. May your spirit of justice guide the specialists to find out the truth of the accident.

Loving God, you are the one who teach us peace and justice, we are concerned about the violent attack in Gaza and many Palestinian have been suffering. God we seek your peace and intervention to stop these inhuman wars and violence. May those mourning the loss of their loved ones be comforted .We ask for your peace dwell upon the lands of the Middle East.

We pray for the Philippines as the nation is suffering from another typhoon which has killed and injured many, millions of people’s lives have been affected by power cuts and flooding. We pray for the government and the relief agencies to provide immediate services for those in need and continue to support the rebuilding and refurbishment of lives and livelihood.

God of unity, you are God of relation, you call us to unit in your love. In Christ we are all in one. We pray here for and with many churches in the world. In the ecumenical cycle of prayers, we pray for the people and churches of Belize, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico. These countries have been suffering from the problems of poverty, corruption and child trafficking. May you save and bring light to the people in these lands.

God of Healing, we uphold members of our congregation who are sick and are hospitalized for treatment.  We particularly remember Amor, Bong and Siamon for their medical treatment and recovery process.

We pray all these in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
