Intercessions

Prayers of Intercession on Sunday  21st July 2019

We turn to God in prayer today…in a peaceful, wealthy and beautiful part of the world and we pray…

O God, The source of all life, you fill the earth with beauty; open our eyes to see your gracious hand in all your works that, rejoicing in your whole creation, we may learn to serve you with real gladness and gratitude for the sake of him through whom all things were made, your son, our Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ,

Lord in your mercy…..Hear our prayer

We pray for our world, especially for areas where there is conflict of any kind, conflict which often results in unimaginable suffering for so many people. Bring peace to our world; bless all who work to improve the lot of those who suffer. Sometimes we can feel that there will never be peace on earth. We pray for our politicians and for our world leaders. Give them courage to really lead and to work for the good of all people and of our planet. May we also play our part by the way we live our own lives.

Lord in your mercy…..Hear our prayer

We pray for our community, for our neighbours and friends, for our families, for those we work with. Be with the lonely, the depressed, with those who are ill or bereaved. Help us to be people who play our part in the community in which we live, aware in our daily lives of the needs of those around us. May we be known for our love and compassion.

Lord in your mercy…..Hear our prayer

We pray for our church family, for our Bishop Paul and for Elaine and their families. We pray for the Holiday Club which begins tomorrow and continues all week. Thank you for all the children who will come and for all the leaders. We pray for safety and for a wonderful week for them all. Bless those who are housebound for various reasons and those no longer able to live in their own homes; help us to value and remember them always.

Lord in your mercy…..Hear our prayer

We pray for ourselves, that we may be loving, generous and kind to all we meet, whether we see eye to eye with them or not. We know that we cannot live like this in our own strength but with you all things are possible.  Open our hearts and minds to new ways of being your people in this world, to new ways of understanding what it means to follow you. Give us courage to follow in your footsteps each day.

Lord in your mercy…..Hear our prayer

We all know people who have asked for or need our prayers….we think of them now in silence…………   

May Christ give to each person we have thought of just now, wholeness of body, mind and spirit and may he give them his peace.

Lord in your mercy…..Hear our prayer

We conclude our prayers….

Merciful Father, accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen

Prayers of Intercession
Sunday July 14th 2019

• Lord, we bring our own needs, and those of our neighbours and friends to you, and entrust them to your love and generosity, as we confidently pray: In today’s Gospel, we are reminded of the parable of the Good Samaritan, who showed compassion and love to a total stranger in need. We pray that we too become good Samaritans in our daily lives, and that we heed the call of Jesus, when he tells us: “Go and do the same yourself”.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.


• We pray for the volunteers in our communities who commit themselves to the care and welfare of those who are less well-off in our society: the sick, the poor, the homeless and the lonely. We pray to the Lord, that he gives them the energy and commitment to continue, especially when they sometimes feel discouraged.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

• We pray for our young people, who are, at this time, experiencing the joy of school holidays and Summer camps. We pray that they get the sunshine they deserve and that, in a safe and happy environment, they learn to appreciate the wonders of nature and the companionship of friends.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.


• We pray for good weather, Lord, for the farmers, who depend on it, to bring to a successful outcome, the fruits of their labour. Give them sufficient sunshine and water to ripen and mature their crops, and to keep their animals strong and healthy. We remember, also, people in other parts of the world (in New Orleans, for example), for whom extremes of weather present big challenges.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.


• Lord, we pray for friends, family and neighbors who are ill at this time. Bless all that is being done for their recovery, and answer our prayers for them as
you see best. We bring their concerns and worries to you, in the quietness of our hearts, and with con?dence that you love us, and know our every need.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.


• We remember all who have suffered bereavement through the death of loved ones – those who have died peacefully and those who have died as a result of violence. Comfort them, Lord, in their loneliness and in their loss. Help them, as they struggle to balance their need to grieve with the, day to day, practical and organizational diffculties they face, as they try to get their lives back on an even keel. Help us to be agents of assistance to them, when our involvement is appropriate.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.


• We pray, Lord for our religious leaders. We pray for our Bishop Paul and his family; for Revd. Elaine and her family; and for all who minister here in the Carrigaline Union of Parishes, in many different
capacities. We remember people who experience abuse or hostility because of what they believe. Give them the strength to have the courage of their convictions, and grant that the perpetrators of prejudice and intolerance in our society will see the error of their ways.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.


• We now take a few moments in silence, to bring before you Lord, our private and personal prayers.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We now say together: Merciful Father,
accept these our prayers,
For the sake of your Son,
our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Amen.
