Prayer for Sunday Epiphany 6b

Compassionate God,
We are grateful you made your compassion incarnate in your son Jesus, who healed the sick such as the leper.
We are grateful you still show your compassion in this world through your people.
There are so many in this world that need your compassion; those who are sick, those who are outcasts, those who are disabled, and those who are grieving.
Lord we pray you keep pouring your compassion on those in need.

Lord we cry out for your mercy for those who are experiencing injustice in this world.
We pray you will make right the wrongs of this world.
We pray you set free those who are prisoners of dictatorships.
We pray that you unslave those who are trapped by slavery.
And we pray for the children of this world who are often victims of injustice.

Merciful God we pray for our leaders that they may be blessed with wisdom.
We pray for our churches that we may truly be your incarnation in this world.
