Prayers of the People | Sept 24

Prayers of the People | Sept 24

I call the community into a time of prayer:

Let us pray for the whole church of God in Christ Jesus, and for all people according to their needs responding to the call “Lord in your mercy,” with “Hear our Prayer.”

Lord in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

We pray for your Church throughout the world: guide and govern us by your Holy Spirit, that all who profess and call themselves Christians may be led into the way of truth, and hold the faith in unity of spirit, in the bond of peace, and in righteousness of life.  We pray especially for Donald our bishop, and all those who serve here at saint benedict’s table.

Lord in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

O God, the creator and preserver of all humanity, we pray for people of every nation, and in every kind of need: make your ways known on earth, your saving power among all peoples. We pray especially for those parts of the world where things seem dark and hopeless and for the people who are daring to offer hope and be a light in those places. We think of North Korea, Syria, Mexico, the Canary Islands and the United States.

Lord in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

We commend to your goodness all who are anxious or distressed in mind or body naming them aloud now or in the silence of our hearts….

Comfort and relieve then in their need; give them patience in their struggles, and the grace born of knowing one’s deepest needs.

Lord in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

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

Amen.
