WWI Event! Save the date!

Do come to a concert in Hever Church on Saturday 10 November to mark the momentous year that was 1918. It was the end of World War I and the beginning of votes for women….. meanwhile flu took its toll, and the housewives of Hever carried on making jam!

The performers are all local and much of the material has a local connection. Tickets are £7.50 on the door or from Joanna Wade 07958 919631.

There are also small exhibitions about the villages in wartime in all three churches in the Benefice – researched by the Eden Valley Museum and sponsored by the Hever Charity. These will run until the end of the year.

Intercessions 29 April Ana Roxburgh

Dear Lord, we thank you for bringing us into your home today, to this dear place to us, a place of peace and tranquillity to worship, to give thanks for all the goodness in our lives, to pray for things that trouble us and to pray for us and our loved ones.   We pray for Wendy and thank you for the leadership and teaching that she provides to us.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

We seek your blessing for our Queen and all the Royal family, and give thanks for their long and devoted service to our country and the Commonwealth. We are welcoming the newest member of the Royal family, the Queen’s sixth great grandchild and wish him all the best in his journey of becoming part of the Royal family. May Charles lead the Commonwealth with the calm and wisdom of his mother, when his time comes.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

Heavenly Father, we pray that you will help your children less fortunate than ourselves, the suffering, the disadvantaged, the ones hit by natural disasters, injustice and discrimination. Please make your presence felt, bring them comfort and hope, give them strength and will power to restore their lives, their homes, and their dreams.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

Father of all creation, we pray for all those undertaking challenges. Whether they are learning to walk again, struggle to breath or challenge themselves for the benefit of others. Support our meaningful work to improve our lives and of those who surround us. Help us see beauty in our daily lives, in the simple things, the sunshine, flowers growing, bells ringing and appreciate the joys being able to use all our senses.

Lord in your mercy: hear our prayer

God of hope, we are deeply moved by the death of little Alfie. Today we pray especially for his parents, as you God receive him in your tender embrace. We also pray for all the sick and their families, may they receive the treatment that they need, may they find your comforting arms and Your healing.

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.
