Prayers of intercession 17th September

We come before You dear God to thank you for being with us in all that we do, for loving us unconditionally as the good parent that You are. Forgive us for not making enough time for you in our lives, for coming to you asking for help and giving little in exchange. Thank you for the opportunities you give us to help others repaying You for the goodness you show us.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

Father of all creation, we thank you for all the writers, painters, musicians and artists that have enriched our lives, given us moments of happiness, and  inspired  us through the gifts that You have given them. Make their work as well as ours be put to good use, to bring friendship among people and those people bring unity across nations, rissing above their differences.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

In a time of international turmoil and evil deeds in our own country, we pray for political and economic stability. We pray for strong leaders, guided by good intentions and willing to develop and preserve this world for the future of our children.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

We pray for all those who lost their homes due to natural disasters, give them the strength to rebuild them, the faith that the sun will shine again. We pray that you give them the inspiration to adapt and help them find solutions to be safe next time the nature is violent. Arise in us love for nature, help us study it, learn from it and be kind to it, so that nature is kind to us.

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.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

Lord give us courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones. And when we have finished our daily tasks, let us go to sleep in peace, knowing that God is awake and looks over us.

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