Prayers of Intercession Oct. 17 2004
Morning Worship at 9-30 am, 29 Ordinary by Mrs Alison Holden

Let us pray for all people, everywhere, whoever they are and whatever their needs.

O God, you created us and you love us as our father; teach us to trust you and help us all to know that you love us completely. Help us to trust that you will always answer our prayers and that we must not only ask, but also listen and look for the answer
We pray for those who hate, that they may learn to love. We pray in particular for those who suffer at the hands of others and for those whose lives and liberty are overtaken by causes which are not their own. Grant, Lord that all people may live without fear and hatred as they walk in your ways.
Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

We pray for people of faith throughout the world, that aspiration to Godly truth might prevail and banish the temptation in men to commit atrocities in the name of faith. We pray for the Church worldwide, its unity and its message. We pray that its light may shine in this world of darkness, that all may know the true love of our Lord Jesus Christ and that we may be proud to confess that we are Christians.
Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

We pray for governments that they may rule with wisdom and justice, and with respect for their subjects and for other nations. We pray especially for the new and faltering nationhood of Iraq, as well as for the United States as it prepares for the presidential election, that wisdom and truth may prevail over personal ambition.
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 and the sorrowful; 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. 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 now sing the Lord’s Prayer.

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.
