Trinity Sunday

15th June 2003

The bidding for our prayers is Lord in your mercy and the response Hear our prayer.

Let us pray
On this Trinity Sunday we have come before you Lord to offer our praise and adoration. You are God the creator, giving us richly all things to enjoy. You are Christ the Saviour of the world, made flesh to set us free. You are the Spirit of truth and love, willing to dwell in us. You are holy and blessed. One god, eternal Trinity, be near to us the people formed in your image, and close to the world your love brings to life.

Lord, in your mercy
Hear our prayer

Lord we pray for your church throughout the world, for those that are thriving and those which have lost a sense of direction.

We give thanks for our church and its people, and gladly acknowledge all the gifts you have given us through its life, we ask you to open wide our hearts that we may welcome the stranger and share our faith with others,

  • open wide our minds that we may receive new truth and understand your will
  • open wide our doors, that as we have come into worship so we may go out with you to the service of the world
  • open wide our lives that through discipline and prayer we may experience your power in daily living.

Lord you have chosen men and women to serve you in the ministry of your church and given them a perfect example in the person of your son: pour your blessings on your servants today, especially those of our own church for Charlie, Joan and Sam, that by word and deed they may proclaim your saving love and so enable us all to grow in your image.

Lord, in your mercy
Hear our prayer

Lord of the universe we praise you for your creation, you have provided mankind with everything it needs for life and health. Grant that the resources of the earth may neither be hoarded by the selfish nor squandered by the foolish but that all may share your gifts.

We remember all who bear the responsibility of leadership, for heads of state, ambassadors and political advisers, we think today particularly of the leaders of the different factions in Israel; let your will for our world be accomplished through the decisions they make and give them a vision of peace and reconciliation for you lord can find a way when men and women are lost.

Lord we pray for peace in the world, create in us a love for peace, not peace that is absent from struggle, nor peace that is blind to injustice but peace that makes whole what now is broken. We remember those who struggle against injustice, for men and women who have to establish loves supremacy in violent and oppressive societies, and for those whom war and famine have robbed of homes, families and friends, may they be filled with your strength and wisdom and grant that where the love of man has failed your divine compassion may heal.

Lord, in your mercy
Hear our prayer

We remember this morning those who are sick, sad or lonely and those who are brave and patient when things are going wrong. We pray that they may be aware of your comforting presence and know that in your hands they are safe and loved.

CandleLord we pray for all whose life is saddened by the death of a loved one, be with them in their loneliness and let them know that 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 Jim T--

You turn our darkness into light; 
in your light shall we see light


Lord, in your mercy
Hear our prayer

Lord we ask you to lead us into the coming week, Help us to believe that you are close by us, keep us from making mistakes and help us never to disappoint you. When we face hard decisions or difficult work, when we enjoy ourselves and have fun with others may we know that you share these times with us.

We bring our prayers to conclusion by singing together the Lord's Prayer which can be found on page 6 of the service sheet.
