Lord God heavenly Father, You did not spare Your own Son but gave him up for us all, and therefore You will also with Him graciously give us all things. Continue to give us Your grace which is perfect for Christ’s sake. Free us from the opinion of the law by which we think we owe you something in return for your grace. Forgive us our presumption. Fulfill our need to receive everything from You. Amen.

For all those who have suffered violence, that they would be comforted with the comfort with which we have been comforted by God

For the President of the United States, that the Lord our God would watch over him, protect him, and that his plans would be ordered for the welfare of the people and that there would be justice for the oppressed

For the Board of Regents of Concordia Theological Seminary, that its members would be kept safe in their travels and that their homecoming would be joyful
