Trinity 7, Sunday 31st July 2021

 

Almighty and everlasting  God,
You promised through your Son Jesus Christ to hear us when we pray in faith, so we bring our prayers to you this morning, for the church, the world and ourselves.

 

Father, we pray for the peace of our church everywhere, for our brothers and sisters in Christ who face persecution and religious oppression and pray that one day they may have the freedom to worship you.   Hear our prayer for all as they follow their vocation and ministry and ask for your blessings on Joachim, Linda, Canon Pat and Father Greg,
all who serve on the PCC or support the church in any other way.
Help us to see others as you see them, and share our love and care by going the extra mile for those in any sort of need in our community.
Lord in Your Mercy……..Hear our Prayer.

Lord, we offer our prayers for our Prime Minister as he governs for the last few weeks of his term of office and pray for the applicants who aspire to become the next Prime Minister. We ask for your wisdom and guidance for them and all who are eligible to take part in the final vote .

We pray for our Queen as she enjoys her time in Scotland and pray for her health and well being and give thanks for a life being given in service.and we pray for the Senior members of her family as they gradually take over her duties.
Lord in your mercy….Hear our prayers.

God of compassion , we pray for all weighed down by the horrors of war, the oppression and violence. For all those who live and die in tragic circumstances, war, poverty, illness, adverse weather conditions, thinking especially of the horrific fires in California. We give profound thanks and prayers for fire fighters world wide and all agencies who struggle to give practical and life saving help to all in need, and ask for your loving guidance and support for them all in their quest to relieve the suffering.

God of mercy, we bring before you all who are troubled by worries of any kind, especially at the moment the rising costs of living and the endless struggle to pay bills and put food on the table. We pray for those who have no homes and feel such helplessness. May they receive practical help and support and be aware of your love for them all.
Lord in your mercy…….Hear our prayers.


 

 

God of healing, we offer our prayers for everyone suffering from ill health , either in mind or body, in hospital or at home and ask for your loving care and help for them all.
We earnestly pray for our struggling Health Service and give profound thanks for all nursing and medical staff as they do all they can to offer the best service possible under such difficult circumstances and we pray for  the many who continue to contract Covid 19 both here in the uk and in Australia where numbers continue to rise.
Lord in your mercy…..Hear our prayers.

But despite all our anxieties Lord, we give you our profound thanks for all that is good in our lives, our families and friends, the beauty of all the wonderful colours and scents of summer flowers, the lovely beaches and warm seas for all to enjoy. We are indeed grateful and pray for those unable to share the same joys.

Heavenly Father we bring before you all who are having to cope with and endure problems of ill health that affects their lives, thinking especially of those known to us.We pray they may always be aware of your loving presence in their lives.

Lastly Lord, we commend to your loving care those who have recently died in our team benefice and ask for your love and care for all bereaved families .

We remember those whose years mind falls at this time,
May they rest in peace and rise in glory .

We thank you for being with us Lord and hearing our prayers.
Please accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Amen.
