Prayers for this coming Sunday

Prayers of Intercession   The prayers at our Sunday Eucharist usually include these concerns and may follow this sequence:

  • The Church of Christ, our local church, and Diocese
  • Creation, human society, the Sovereign and those in authority
  • The local community, our families, friends, and neighbours.
  • Those who suffer
  •  The communion of saints, the departed and the bereaved

Please use and share these prayers as you will. There is no copyright on communications with God our Heavenly Father, his beloved son Jesus Christ our Lord or with the Holy Spirit and Lord of Life.

Intercessions for the Last Sunday after Trinity Year A–29th October 2017

Everlasting God, you made a covenant with our ancestors and pledged them descendants more numerous than the stars. Grant that all people may share in the blessings of your covenant, accomplished through the death and resurrection of your Son and sealed by the gift of your Spirit. Amen.

(Short Silence)

Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer

Loving God, we hold the needs of our sisters and brothers as dearly as our own needs. Help us to love you with all our hearts and with all our souls and with all our minds and to love our neighbours as ourselves. With these commandments before us we offer our thanksgivings and our petitions on behalf of the church here in the Costa Blanca and throughout the world.

(Short Silence)

Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer

Creator God, we pray for the peoples of the world that they may enjoy un-perverted justice whether they be poor or rich, great or small.  We pray that those who use violence and terror to bring about their desires and those who then so readily seek revenge following acts of terrorism may instead pursue all that makes for peace.

(Short Silence)

Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer

Father God, we thank you for our families and friends.  We thank you for modern technology which enables us to hear and see them so easily and to keep in touch even though separated by great distances.  We especially pray at this time for those friends and family members in the UK as they enjoy a half-term break from schools and colleges.

(Short Silence)

Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer

Holy God,, friend of those in need, your Son Jesus has loosened our burdens and healed our spirits. We lift before you for those still burdened, those seeking healing, those in need within the church and the world.

Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer

Loving God of all consolation, your Son Jesus was moved to tears at the grave of Lazarus his friend. Look with compassion on those bereaved and grieving at the loss of a loved one; give to their troubled hearts the light of hope and strengthen in all of us the gift of faith, in Jesus Christ our Lord.

(Short Silence)

(add names of the recently departed or on Anniversary list)

Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer

Gracious God, at the start of this new week, recognising your trust in us to live and preach the Gospel, make us always more ready to please you rather than to seek the praise of the secular world

Merciful Father: Accept these prayers for the sake of your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen
