Church Prayers and Intercessions for Christ the King Ordinary 30

Mr Warwick Holden

Prayers for Sunday 25th November 2018

Let Us Pray…
We pray for all peoples in the world at this time of approaching festivities. We pray for, and remember those who will find it difficult to celebrate Christmas this year. We pray for those who are lonely at this time of year. For those who have no family or friends. For those who cannot get out of their house and meet people day-to-day.
Lord, in Your Mercy….

We pray for all who suffer at this time of year, from loneliness, from cold, from rejection by others. Lord, we bring before you all those who society rejects, because of illness – physical or mental. Those who have different beliefs, different colour of skin, or those who simply choose to be different. You sent your Son to bring joy and comfort to all men, we pray that we may help fulfil His mission at this time of the year.
Lord, in Your Mercy….

We pray for our leaders, Charlie and Sam. We pray for all who choose to lead people in whatever capacity, large or small. May you guide them with Your Love, help them with Your compassion, and support them in their work. We pray for all who work harder at this time of the year to help and support those less well off than others.
Lord, in Your Mercy….

We pray for those who suffer in body, mind, or spirit. Christmas can be a difficult time of year for many people, separated from their loved ones because of work, because they are ill in hospital, or because they are unable to join in festivities for whatever reason. May You bring the Peace and Joy which Christ came into the world to bring into their hearts this year.
Lord, in Your Mercy….

We pray for those who have died. We remember those we hold in our hearts. We are sure of a life still to come, beyond death. We pray for those who are left behind, who mourn loved friends and relations.  Jesus Christ is the light of the world, a light which no darkness can quench.  We remember before God those who have died and light a candle to symbolise the light of Christ, which eternally shines and brings hope. We remember …

You turn our darkness into light: in your light shall we see light.
Merciful Father,           

Accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
Gathering our prayers and praises into one, let us say the Lord’s Prayer together.
