Intercessions for the second Sunday before Lent 11 February 2007

By Mr Warwick Holden


Prayers for Sunday 11th February 2007

Let us pray for all people in all nations around the world.

We pray for those afflicted by conflict in the Middle East, Africa, and elsewhere. For those who have lost loved ones to violence.

We pray for those who live in poverty, who suffer from starvation, who do not enjoy the quality of life that we take for granted.
Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer

We pray for those who work to safeguard our world, who try to keep the balance between industrial technology and destruction of our environment.
We pray for our leaders who work to make difficult decisions about our world and ourselves, grant them wisdom and care in their deliberations.
Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer

We pray for your Church throughout the world, from our own parish of Brickhill & Putnoe to the wider world of Methodist & Anglican, and other religions. We ask you to guide all leaders in the way of tolerance, peace, and forgiveness.
Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer

We pray for all who suffer in body, mind, or spirit. We ask that you show them your peace, and help them in their pain and worry. May they gain their own peace and understanding from Christ’s love of all people, whatever their status or suffering.
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.
