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.

Intercessions 13th August

Dear God, we thank you for bringing us here today, for our neighbours and friends, for the people in our community who are organising events and bringing people together, for our Reverend Wendy and all the church wardens and we remember all those who have been baptised, confirmed, married and buried here.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

Father of patience and wisdom, please share some of your knowledge with us. Help us to be more patient with each other, to bring calmness in our homes, understanding and respect for each other. To be patient with our children who need time to learn from us and constant support from us, with the teenagers in our lives who go through the transition from child to adult and with whom opinions often clash, with our parents and grandparents who only want our best in life and with ourselves.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

Please help us remove our negative thoughts, self judgement and fear based thinking. Help us be more confident in our goals and do not let us underestimate ourselves. Please hold our hand and bring clarity to our thoughts, love us and give us opportunities to rise.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

We pray for political and economic stability, for gender equality, for diversity and for nature. We pray for strong leaders, guided by good intentions and willing to preserve this world for the future of our children.

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 

We pray for talented, smart, good willed people who make our world a better place. 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.

Merciful Father, accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour,

Jesus Christ. Amen.
