For your prayers -
Tim Leitner (serving in Synodically Authorized Ministry, Pekin) and his family welcome your prayers for his mother, Mary Leitner, as she enters hospice care. Tim's message is that his mother made this decision herself and that she is looking forward to entering God's heavenly kingdom.
Almighty God, look with favor upon Mary, whom you made your child in Baptism. Thank you for giving and sustaining her faith in your promise of life with all your saints, the promise made sure by the death and resurrection of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Grant her and her family holy strength and your abiding peace for the coming days – the assurance of the communion of saints. Send your Spirit to comfort, strengthen, and sustain all of us in faith, to cast our anxiety on you, for you care for us, through the same Jesus Christ. Amen.
