Church Prayers and Intercessions

Prayers of Intercession for use in Church Prayers

Palm Sunday April 1

Mrs Sam Ware

After the words ‘Lord in your mercy’ we say ‘Hear our prayer’.

Dear Lord,
We remember today on Palm Sunday Jesus’ journey into Jerusalem
and we pray for all those making a personal journey back to Christ.
We ask that your spirit guide and strengthen us all
in mission and service to you.
Lord in your mercy: Hear our prayer

Lord, we pray for peace, justice, mercy and forgiveness in the world,
espescially those parts of the world where conflict persists
and your children suffer as a result.
Help us to bring peace and happiness to the lives we touch.          
At this time of year it is easy to see the beauty of the world in which we live,
please help us to care for it and do more to protect it.
Lord in your mercy: Hear our prayer

We pray for all those for whom life is difficult because of physical or mental
illness, and those who struggle because of poverty.
May they come to know that your love surrounds them.
Today we remember all the children, their teachers and their families
who are now on holiday for Easter.
We pray for our ministers and children’s leaders here at church as they lead us
At this special time of worship.
Lord in your mercy: Hear our prayer

Lord we pray for all those whose lives are clouded by the loss of a loved one.
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 today James Thomas Davis and Aphrodite Hubbard.
You turn our darkness into light and in your light shall we see light.
Merciful Father :
accept these prayers for the sake of your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer…..
