Church Prayers and Intercessions

Church Prayers and Intercessions for Ordinary 17

Let us bring our prayers to God trusting in his steadfast love and in his willingness always to hear us when we call on his name.

We pray for God’s church in the world that she may remain faithful to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and proclaim that Gospel to people of all nations. We pray for our own daily living out of our faith that we may be faithful witnesses to our faith in Jesus Christ.

We pray for God’s world with all its needs and hurts and for ourselves that we may respond to those needs with compassion and generosity.

We pray for all God’s children in our community. We pray that God’s steadfast love may be made known to them by the way in which we live and in the way in which we serve them. We pray that this summer may be a time of refreshments and enjoyment when they might know the love of friends and family.

We pray for all who are in need of God’s healing and peace that they may know God’s presence surrounding them in their pain and distress. We pray for the bereaved that they might know God’s peace.
Lord God, our heavenly Father, we offer these prayers to you now. We ask that through them and the prayers of all your people your will may be done in the church, throughout the world, in our lives and in the lives of all for whom we have prayed. We ask this in the name of your Son, our saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
