Christ the King Sunday Prayer

O Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come,
We live in a world that is constantly in change and flux.
It is hard for us to go through all of life’s many changes.
We look for someone who is constant, for something that is secure.
It is comforting that you are that one sure thing.
And so we put our trust in you to guide us and to walk beside us.

For some the changes in our neighborhoods and cities are cause for distress.
Some hate the aging process for what it does to our bodies and minds.
Some struggle with work related layoffs, job losses, higher demand on the ones left working.
Some are lost with divorces, losses, breakdown in communications in their relationships.
Some such as those in the Mideast are in shock over the civil unrest, terrorism, wars.
And we have all be effected by climate change whether its drought, flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes, fires.

In all this we look to you for our rock, our place we can go to for sanctuary and peace.
And in your love and grace we find that which we look for the peace we need.

Oh Lord God, you are the one who is and who was and who is to come.
In you we put our faith in trust to hear and answer our prayers and the cry of the needy.
