Intercessions for Ordinary 27 by Mrs Alison Holden

Prayers 7 October 2007
Let us pray for all the world, and also for ourselves, knowing that what we ask in your name you will hear in your mercy. We pray for faith, even as small as a mustard-seed, and for the love to nourish and nurture it that it may grow and flourish.

We pray for the church throughout the world, that people of faith may work together in unity and in prayer to overcome evil and to promote true love among all people. O Lord, you are the beginning of all our good, the wellspring of all our love and the source of all our freedom. Let your grace work on in us, that your will may be done through us, and that we may always rejoice in your presence.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer

We pray for the world, that all may know your love and turn from wickedness and greed. We pray that the enslaved may be free, that the sick may be healed and that the hungry may be satisfied. May we treat this world, of which we have been appointed stewards, with respect, wisdom and care for future generations, that the riches with which you have endowed it, sufficient for all, may be husbanded wisely and not squandered for personal gain.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer

We pray for all who suffer in mind or body and for those who care for them. We pray for the sick; for those who mourn; for those without faith, hope or love.
We pray for any known to us who are in special need of our prayers at this time, especially those known personally to us. We remember them now in a moment of silence ….
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer

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.

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
On earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours
Now and for ever. Amen.
