Prayers for 17th February 2019

INTERCESSIONS ST MARY’S CARRIGALINE

Response: Hear our prayer!

Lord, as we re?ect on today’s Gospel reading, help us to understand what is required of us as your disciples. In our everyday lives, we’re each asked to stand up and be counted as your followers. Help us to stand up for what is right rather than what is popular; to make the just, (though dif?cult) choice, rather than turn our back on your truth by taking the easier option.

Lord, in your mercy …

As political leaders negotiate treaties and transactions that have far reaching effects, we pray that their decisions will be dictated by fairness and justice. We pray, particularly, for all involved in negotiations surrounding “Brexit”. May they be guided by values that are dictated by the common good rather than values based purely on political superiority.

Lord in your mercy ….

Lord, we bring before you the state of industrial unrest in our own country. We ask that those in positions of authority will behave impartially and fairly, when adjudicating employees’ grievances. We ask, also, that workers seeking justice, will be mindful of the common good, and be reasonable in terms of their expectations.

Lord in your mercy …

We ask you, Lord to guide us in our relationships … with our families, loved ones, friends and neighbours, and in our work-places. Help us to treat others as we would wish to be treated ourselves, and to see you in those we encounter every day.

Lord in your mercy …

We ask for your blessing, Lord, on our Church and on its ministers. God bless Bishop Paul, Revd. Elaine and their families. We ask your blessing, also, for all who minister here in St. Mary’s, in every capacity.

Lord in your mercy …

We pray for all who are sick or in?rm. We pray for those who are experiencing loneliness or depression. Give us the courage and insight, Lord, to reach out and help, wherever our assistance is needed.

Lord in your mercy …

We take a few moments, in silence, to remember those needs that are private and personal to each of us.

(SILENCE) Lord in your mercy …

WE CONCLUDE BY SAYING TOGETHER: MERCIFUL FATHER, ACCEPT THESE OUR PRAYERS FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR SON, OUR SAVIOUR, JESUS CHRIST. AMEN
