Interfaith Prayers

Continued prayers for the Philippines in the aftermath of the storms there.

Religious groups are participating in a UN summit on climate. The summit is held in Warsaw.

Talks regarding Iran’s nuclear problem have continued in Geneva, with Iran’s program being curbed and sanctions against Iran eased. Israeli leaders have expressed consternation at the settlement.

Hanukkah begins this year on November 28, and continues until December 5.

Many people will be celebrating Thanksgiving on November 28, a holiday that was (in 1941) congressionally fixed on November’s fourth Thursday. Prayers for people celebrating, and prayers for folks who have to work.  November 28 is also the the Baha'i commemoration of the Ascension of 'Abdu'l-Baha.

Prayers for church leaders who will be preaching, teaching, singing, and otherwise bringing us meaningful worship services this morning.
