Intercessions 28 May

Heavenly Father, we thank you for all you have given to us. We thank you for our families and friends, for the people in our lives that have treated us with love, for our church and our priest Wendy, but most of all we thank you for Jesus, for his love and teaching, for his death on the cross, his Ascension and the new life he brought to us as a result of this.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

God bless Elisabeth our Queen and her family. God bless our Prime Minister and everyone involved in difficult negotiations for the future of our country. God bless and guide all the leaders in the world and their advisors, the powers you have given to them may be put to good use and may their decision be wise and may they bring people together. We pray for unity and understanding.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

We pray for the ones affected by the attack in Manchester, for the people that have lost their lives, those who are suffering and the ones who fight terrorism. We mourn with them and ask you to bring healing into their lives. We also are reminded how fragile our life is and how we should appreciate the joyful moments we spend with our loved ones.

We pray for the police, and the security services that they may find ways to prevent future attacks on our way of life. We pray that evil plans against humanity are not carried out with success. We pray that all those who think about giving their lives to take others that they will see the light of your teaching and love and they will stop.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

We pray for the truth, that it may always rise above individuals, no matter how influential they are. We pray for the media to stay impartial, for people to keep informed and to recognize truth and follow a Christian path.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

We also ask for your blessing for friends and neighbours and we pray for people in our community that are ill in body or mind or spirit

May your presence be with them and relieve their suffering, help them restore.

We pray for the departed, Nigel Snelling Collyer, Monty Koppell, take their souls and brng comfort to those they leave behind.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

We pray for our parents, for the people that have shaped us to be, for all their love and happy memories we had together with them. We thank you for having them in our lives, but most of all we thank You God, Heavenly Father for coming into our lives and for holding our hand whenever we needed you.

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