Church Prayers and Intercessions

Sunday Next before Lent 2015

Mrs Sam Ware

Intercessions for Sunday February 15th 2015

After the words ‘Let us pray to the Lord’, we say ‘Lord, have mercy’.

Let us pray.
For the peace that comes from God alone,
for the unity of all peoples,
and for the good of our souls:
Let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the whole Church of Christ,
in its diversity as well as in its confusion,
in its sense of mission, vision, and hope:
that its worship may be true, and its service and sacrifice genuine:
Let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For people in need:
those for whom life is a bitter struggle;
those who have lost family members, homes, jobs through war and civil strife;
those whose lives are clouded by death or loss, pain or disability, discouragement or fear, shame or rejection;
that  they may know the warmth, the comfort and the assurance of your love.
Let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For the nations of the world, especially those countries where there is discord and uncertainty, and where those who claim authority and power do so without their people’s consent;
for the people of nations in conflict, as they seek to bring about a fairer and more equal society;
for those who work behind the scenes, using diplomatic skills, to foster better understanding between leaders;
Let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For all who mourn the loss of loved ones, whatever the circumstances;
for those whose lives have been turned upside down by tragedy or illness;
for those who are anxious about what tomorrow may bring;
Let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

Jesus Christ is the light of the World, a light which no darkness can quench. As we give thanks for those who have gone before us and whose lives have reflected your love, 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 AAA
You turn our darkness into light and in your light shall we see light.
Merciful Father :
accept these prayer for the sake of your Son our Saviour, Jesus Christ, Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer…..
