INTERCESSIONS – Sunday 30th May 2021

28 May 2021

Today is Trinity Sunday so let us pray to the Father through the Son and in the power of the Holy Spirit.

We bring before you O God, the needs of the Church, in its weaknesses and its potential; revive and refresh us, teach and direct us, inspire all who preach, teach and spread the good news, and uphold all who suffer for their faith in any way.

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer we ask your blessing on La Iglesia Anglicana de Mexico.

    Lord in your mercy
    Hear our prayer

We bring before you, O God, the particular problems of our age and culture, especially remembering the COVID pandemic. Renew in us a commitment to Community and mutual trust and give a sense of value to all who despise others and themselves. Protect the vulnerable and all who have to endure violence in their homes or countries.

    Lord in your mercy
    Hear our prayer

We bring before you O God, the nurturing of children and young people.

In homes and parenting, schools and teaching, in the expectations, pressures and dangers, in the hopes and possibilities for good.

    Lord in your mercy
    Hear our prayer

We bring before you, O God, the hungry and malnourished, the greedy and complacent; those who are ill and those who care for them, the unhappy and those who comfort them; all who are undergoing surgery or painful treatment and all who have no one to turn to. In a moment of silence we remember all those on our Church prayer list and those only know to us personally.

    Lord in your mercy
    Hear our prayer

We bring before you, O God, those who have died in faith and will now see you face to face; those for whom death brings fear and those unprepared to meet you. Those who are left to mourn and build new lives alone.

    Lord in your mercy
    Hear our prayer

We bring before you, O God, our lives and all that we are, including our successes and our failures. We thank you for this gift of life and ask that we may get to know you more deeply day by day.

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