Intercessions for Sunday 27th June 2021

Fifth Sunday after Pentecost

Intercessor: Richard Horrell

Everlasting God we are gathered together in love and fellowship, hear us now as we bring before you our cares and our needs.

And so we pray for your church throughout the world, for Christians everywhere meeting in small house groups, in rural and town churches and in great city cathedrals. Grant that we and all your people may be built up in our faith and show in our lives the love we see in Jesus.

(Short Silence)

Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer

Lord God, we give you thanks for our church here in Helensburgh, for Mark our Primus,Kevin our Bishop, Dom our Rector and Kevin our Lay reader. We pray for all who minister and preach and who enlarge and enrich our understanding of God and help us to respond to his love.

(Short Silence)

Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer

Holy God, we pray for Christians working in places of power and influence who make decisions which affect the lives of so many people. We ask you to bless those who work in politics, in the media, in advertising and in the financial markets. May they all know what to say and how to act for the benefit of all people and at all times to be true and faithful to you. We pray for Mothers’ Union members throughout the world who are working to minimise the effect of the Covid pandemic in their communities wherever they are living.

Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer

Father God we pray for those whom we love, family and friends who are the special people in our lives wherever they may be. We pray for their hopes, their fears, their problems and their needs but most of all we thank you for each one of them and for what they give and mean to us.

(Short Silence)

Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer

Merciful God, todays gospel showed the tremendous faith of a sick woman.  Help us to learn from this “that we should always pray and not give up” and that if we “ask it will be given to us.” We raise before you now all those who we know who need to touch the hem of Jesus garments and receive health and healing in their lives especially those affected in any way by Coronavirus.

Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer

Merciful God, into your caring hands we commit those who have died and we pray for all those who are mourning the loss of a loved one. This morning we pray in remembrance of Donald Boak, priest. May he rest in peace.

(Short Silence)

Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer

Gracious God, we have laid before you our concerns and now we offer you our thanks and praise for all the blessings and gifts you lavish on us. In the weeks ahead help us to keep the faith as deeply and passionately as Jairus and the woman at the lake.

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