Prayers 15th July 2018

From the rising of the sun to its setting, let us pray to the Lord

Let us pause now, breathe deeply and pray to God our Father,
who has reconciled all things to himself in Christ:

We pray to you O Lord for peace among the nations,
So all peoples may grow in justice, understanding and harmony.
We pray especially for an end to the conflicts that force so many innocent people to leave their homes and communities to suffer as refugees, may we all be ready to offer these your children our support.

Guide the leaders of all nations in the ways of integrity, compassion and truth, Bless the relationships between world leaders, unite them to resist the self serving agendas of division and greed.

Lord in your mercy. Hear our prayer

We pray to you, O Lord for your church in all the world
That the people of God may worship in spirit and in truth And strive for that unity which is Your will.
Bless our own beautiful country and our communities, our neighbours, friends and families. We thank you for all our blessings and bless those on holidays that they may return relaxed and refreshed.
We remember especially today our farmers and their families as they struggle through this very difficult year of weather extremes.

Lord in your mercy. Hear our prayer

We pray to you, O Lord
For the needy In our world,
that they may not be forgotten,
For the sick in body, in mind or in spirit, for those who are stressed, grieving or lonely
that they may know your power to heal,

In a few moments of silence now we bring you our private prayers and prayers those known to us in need of your Love and care at this time…….
……(pause)

Draw near to all who suffer merciful Lord that they may sense your presence and trust in your unfailing love for them.

Lord in your mercy. Hear our prayer

A CONCLUDING PRAYER
Lord help us to always give thanks for the bounty you provide for us and remind us to share the gifts you give us with others. Guide us to make time in our lives for reflection, penitence and prayer so we may to grow closer to You, our Father in Heaven. Amen

(We conclude our prayers and say together)

Merciful father, accept these our prayers
For the sake of your Son
Our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Amen

Prayers from Sunday 8th July 2018

 

Heavenly Father

Help us to acknowledge you as both our Abba Father and as the Lord God Almighty, able and willing to do far more than we dare to ask.

Help us to grow in faith and to recognise that you are our strong tower to whom through Jesus we can go for safety, help and peace.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer

 

Lord Jesus Christ

Help us to grow in spirit and truth through faith in your resurrection and overcoming of death to recognise your promise of salvation, your exhortation to bring the gospel to others and to love our neighbours as ourselves.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer

 

Spirit of the Living God

Teach us to grow in wisdom to become the living stones precious to the Father and to the Lord Jesus. Help us to build relationships with all in this Your world – people of faith, other faiths or of no faith – regardless of differences. Help us to realise that our weakness as children of God is counteracted by God’s strength, mercy and love.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer

 

Guide us Living God to be built up by one another through fellowship rather than divisions between clergy and laity, societal standing, wealth or possessions. Rather inspire us to grow in a holy priesthood of believers who offer our lives in service through Jesus Christ to the glory of God the Father.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer

Amen                                                                  

 

Prayers for healing

 

Lord God, whose Son, Jesus Christ, understood people’s fears and pain before they spoke of them, we pray for those in hospital.

Surround the frightened with your tenderness; give strength to those in pain; hold the weak in your arms of love; and give hope and patience to those who are recovering.

We ask this through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Amen

 

(Christine McMullen (2004) in Lloyd, T. (ed.) Pocket Prayers for Healing, Church House Publishing, p.32)

 

Tender and compassionate God,

You are our steadfast companion in

the joyous times of our lives.

 

When we rejoice, you celebrate with us;

When we are anxious and afraid, you

Offer us a relationship where we can find

Courage to face the unknown; when we

weep with sadness, you are our comforter.

 

Help us, O God,

to believe that you receive us as we are,

and help us to entrust ourselves,

with all our many struggles and hopes,

to your faithful and abiding care.

 

Amen
