As he guides his Church into ways of spiritual beauty and gracious wisdom, may the word of the Lord be spoken out with passion and heard with humility and joy. May he sustain and feed us so that we bear fruit in abundance.
May justice and righteousness flourish in this neighbourhoods, this country, this world. May the Lord bless those who work to right what is wrong and mediate where there is conflict. We ask him to raise up leaders who are happy to serve and to protect them from power’s corruption.
We thank the Lord for the nurturing we have received, and pray for our children and young people as they grow. May the Lord protect them from evil and strengthen them in faith; may they continue to be his for ever.
We pray for comfort and healing for all who are in any kind of need, sorrow or pain. May they sense the reassuring presence of the Lord and know that he is there with them, wherever their journey takes them.
We pray for those who have died to this earthly life, and now see the Lord face to face. We remember his mercy and commit our loved ones to the safety of his keeping.
