Intercessions for 17th April

 

Let us pray.

Heavenly Father, grant us the understanding that we may do your will in all things.

We pray for the church of Christ throughout the world and in the Anglican cycle of prayer we pray for the church in India…We GIVE THANKS for the work of Diocese of Mumbai - (North India)


We pray for the clergy of the Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish churches licensed to the Rural Dean of Bermondsey and for the Bermondsey Deanery.
The Church of Norway Diocese:

We pray for Clive, our Parish Priest and all the people in the parish and all who work and worship here in Cliddesden. We pray especially for the confirmation candidates across the benefice preparing for Confirmation in June. Inspire your people, Lord, that the weary in spirit may be sustained.

Lord in your mercy ...

We pray for our world and those with whom we share it, remembering the excluded, those deprived of their civil rights and those subject to torture or inhuman treatment. Lord, support all who seek to help them in their distress.  Fortunately most of us in Church today will never experience what it’s like to be homeless. It is frightening and depressing, and can affect people from all walks of life. So we pray for the work of Emmaus, which gives people a chance to get back on their feet, to be trusted and regain their self-esteem, and to be recognized as people with a positive future, not dependant on handouts.

Lord in your mercy ...

We pray for our Government, and for the common good of the communities in which we live and work. As we prepare for a general election, We pray for all those in our society whose voices go unheeded. Give us compassion, Lord, that we may respond to their cries.

Lord in your mercy ...

Lord, relieve and protect those who are sick, be with those who have any special need and heal the distress of all who suffer from ill health. In a moment of silence before God we pray for those known to us personally, remembering especiallyIan Ferguson and Alan Turner, and for all who are in need of the support of our prayers.

Lord in your mercy ...

Father, we give thanks for all who share in the gift of faith that comes to us through our Risen Lord, Jesus Christ. We Remenber Carol Fenn, and all who have died faith,  and your faithful people in every age and pray that we may share with them the joys of your eternal Kingdom.

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

As in the tale of Nathan and David, help us to lighten their burdens, Lord, and to raise their hope in your divine love.

Lord in your mercy ...

Lord in your mercy

 

The words of Luke today said that if anyone is there who shares in peace, your peace will rest on that person; but if not, it will return to you.  We pray for change in our world; for an end to bitterness and hatred, poverty and suffering, tyranny and oppression. Help us to find peace between nations,  peace in our homes, peace at our workplaces, and peace within the church.

We have heard today that the harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore, Father, we pray for Your Church throughout the world, that it may unite in the work of Your Son, revealing You to all and reconciling all to You and to one another. On this 4th July, we pray that all Americans may reflect upon their nation’s power, and may learn to use it wisely for the greater good.

We pray for the Church in this Benefice and throughout the world,  asking that wherever your people meet there may be a real fellowship in which there are no quarrels and divisions; no distinctions of race, of colour, of social standing - a fellowship in which all are truly one. We ask your blessing on those who serve you here in any way, and on all who come here to pray, to worship and to meet with You in this place of prayer. Help us all to work and pray to make this church a place where all feel truly welcome.

We bring to you all those who are suffering. You have said that as a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you. You know that pain affects us all in different ways, whether it is caused physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually. It is very real and we ask, Father, that You will comfort and and hold close to You all those who are suffering.. Let Your love flow through the pain and heal them.
