Worship at KUC : Pastoral Prayers

The Pastoral Prayer is a prayer offered by a minister in the course of a service of worship for and on behalf of the congregation. Traditionally, the Pastoral prayer has occupied a prominent place in the period of prayers in the Sunday worship service. Here at KUC, it is usually prayed by the liturgist after the first scripture reading. The Pastoral Prayer is the means to an end: to the worshiper’s coming into the actual presence of God.

Prayers of the People—November 8

God, as members of our congregation travel to Haiti to work in mission, watch over their travels, keep them safe, and bless their work. We pray also for our confirmands who are on a retreat, seeking to draw closer to you. Give them open hearts to receive of your love and discerning minds to accept your truth. Grant all traveling mercies and welcome reunions.
