Prayers of the people

Dear Lord, you have given us so much. You have offered us grace and mercy. In gratitude we give you thanks. In our thankfulness we pray and offer supplication for ourselves and our community.

Today, we pray for the local, national, and global churches, that they might exhibit the way of service in faith and love.

We pray for the international communities, that they might learn the way of peace.

We pray for anyone who suffers. Help us be the healing they need.

We pray for the earth. Help us to be proper stewards of your creation.

We remember those who have come to their eternal rest, and we wrap our loving arms of comfort around those who grieve.

We lift up, in silence, any prayers we hold in the corners of our hearts for you know and understand all things.

 

We ask all these things in the name of our Creator,

our Saviour and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
