Principally Speaking

I used to teach with Sonja Tiedman in Forest City. Sonja recently retired, but I remember her as such a vivacious teacher, always showing such love and care to her students. She also had a great sense of humor and found joy so easily. One winter morning she listened as one of her students described […]

Our daughter, Maria, is a member at Trinity Lutheran Church in Mason City. This congregation often holds church gatherings at the homes of various members. A recent get together was held at the farm of the parish nurse. Because Maria is plagued with migraine headaches, most often triggered by smoke, scents, and weather changes, she […]

Sustained and nurtured by our generous God, we gather as one to pray for the church, the world, and all of God’s creation.

Bless pastors, deacons, and lay leaders in their ministries, so that the Church would take action wherever we are needed. Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer.

Protect people, animals and habitats in places damaged by natural disasters especially in the Bahamas and the East Coast of North America. Restore balance to deserts, oceans, polar regions, and temperate areas. Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer.

Watch over all new borns especially Nora Moeller and McCoy Kist. Bless their parents and grant them a long life rooted in the ways of faith in you. Lord, in your mercy,
heart our prayer.

Instruct all the world’s people, nations, and governments in ways of justice, mercy, and peace. Lead us away from the idols of power, violence and fear. Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer.

Show mercy to the lost, welcome to the guest, and comfort to the suffering. We pray for all who need your healing and constant presence especially Larry Kuecker, Wendell Lampe, Pr. Chuck Steinke, Donna Swinto and Gloria Tehven. Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer.

Strengthen those who work with people in crisis: firefighters, police officers, hospital staff, chaplains, nurses, doctors, emergency responders, staff and counselors in rehab centers and women’s shelters. Give them wisdom and compassion for their service. Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer.

We give thanks for the beloved sheep of your fold who have died and who now find life in your eternal glory including Donna Dralle. Embrace us as we hope and rejoice in your never failing love. Lord, in your mercy,
hear our prayer.

Assured by your promise to hear us, we lay our prayers before you; in Jesus' name.
Amen.
