Intercession Prayers 27th July 2014

Posted by on July 27, 2014

Begged, borrowed and pinched from a few places – including the Church of England Topical Prayers page but broadly my own.


 

In the power of the Spirit and in union with Christ, let us pray to the Father.

The response to God of love is Hear our prayer:

God of love
Hear our prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, we pray for your Church.
We pray that all those embraced by the love of the
Church continue to cherish and mirror your love.
We pray that all those embraced by the love of the
Church welcome others into the tender Grace you taught us.
We pray for our leaders and we pray for unity in difference and love in diversity.
God of love
Hear our prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, we pray for peace,
bring near the day when wars shall cease
and poverty and pain shall end,
and that earth may know the peace of heaven.

We pray for peace in Gaza and Israel:
for an end to hostilities,
for comfort and help for all who suffer,
and for reconciliation between Palestine and Israel.

We pray for the Christians of Mosul,
a city where Christian and Muslim have lived together for over 1400 years.
We pray for healing, peace and restoration.
Bring light out of this darkness and hope from despair
that guided by your Holy Spirit, all your children may find a new way forward together based on your love for us all.

We pray for those damaged by the fighting in Syria.
To the wounded and injured:
To the terrified who are living in shock:
To the hungry and homeless, refugee and exile:

Give strength Lord Jesus Christ
To those bringing humanitarian aid:
To those giving medical assistance:
To those offering counsel and care:
For all making the sacrifice of love:

God of love
Hear our prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, we pray for those in pain or suffering.
We pray for those who are ill in our community

God of love
Hear our prayer

Let us commend ourselves, and all for whom we pray,
to the mercy and protection of God.

Amen
