Intercessions for Sunday 30th May - Trinity Sunday

Almighty God, Creator of Creation,                                                                                           God for us,                                                                                                                               God with us,                                                                                                                                God within us                                                                                                                               open our hearts in thankfulness and surrender as we pray.

Give grace in the power of the Spirit to this your church here at All Saints, and to the whole church throughout the nations, that the world might see your love and give glory to your precious name.

In our cycle of prayer, today we remember the leaders, priests and lay workers across the Anglican church in Mexico, the Lusitanian church of Portugal, the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran church and, in Britain, the Diocese of Hereford.

We thank you for those who minister and lead our Diocese of Lincoln, those here in Stamford and especially we thank you for Father Neil and David; bless and guide them in their work and give strength and encouragement to deal with the many challenges of living through this present time.  Stir our hearts afresh as we work with them to reach out to our community in love. 

Lord in your mercy hear our prayer

 

Father God, Three in One, have mercy on all peoples and prosper the efforts of those who strive for peace and reconciliation.  Forgive those who have fallen short under the pressures of public office and inspire a renewed sense of integrity and service to build up a spirit of cooperation that enriches our common life in this country and across the nations.

In a moment of quiet, we lift to you those countries across the world that you have placed on our hearts at this time, and pray for their leaders and those guiding our own nation.

Lord in your mercy hear our prayer

 

Loving Lord, we pray for our local community here in Stamford, remembering this week our schools, their staff and students now looking forward to their half term break.  Refresh them, we pray.                                                                                                  We pray too for those students and staff who will be returning to assessment for qualifications under the unfamiliar systems necessitated by Covid restrictions.  Give grace to all. 

Lord in your mercy hear our prayer

Comfort and heal all those who suffer in body, mind or spirit.  Surround them with your love and give them courage in their pain.  We thank you for those who care for any in need, at home, through our social services, and within our medical services.

Here at All Saints, we lift to you Pam Walden, Rae Boreham, Irene Bailey, Peter Hart, Shirley Grant, Dorothy Court, Steph Steer, Bella, Margaret Young, JB Wilson,  Roger Watson and those whom we name before you now in our hearts…..

Lord in your mercy hear our prayer

 

Welcoming Lord, you have the gift of eternal life.  Gather in, we pray, those who have gone before into glory and comfort those who mourn their loved ones.  We thank you for the lives of Norman Browning, Bill Ballard and Stella Ward and those whom we still love yet see no more and name before you now in the assurance of your promises.

Grant us with them a share in your eternal kingdom.

Rejoicing in the mighty strength of the Trinity                                                                      God for us,                                                                                                                               God with us,                                                                                                                                God within us                                                                           

and in the fellowship of all your saints, we commend ourselves and all peoples to your unfailing love

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