Prayers 

(Introduction) At the end of each prayer I will say Jesus Lord of Life, please say  Fill us with your love.

1. Let us pray.

Lord, whatever the weather – whether the sun is shining or if it is overcast or threatening to be cold or rainy.

Or if we are feeling happy or maybe downcast we are reminded to praise you or to come to you in prayer.

Jesus Lord of Life, Fill us with your love.

 

2. ‘God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.’

Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice upon the cross for each one of us and taking upon your shoulders the sins of the whole world.

Help us to love one another as you have loved us.

Jesus Lord of Life, Fill us with your love.

 

3. Lord  Jesus, bring peace to our families, to our neighbours and to all in our church family.

We pray for all who are in trouble, in need, or in sickness.

We pray for those nations who are at war or where there is civil unrest.

We also pray for all fleeing persecution and the homeless. Jesus said ‘ Come to me and I will give you rest.’

Jesus Lord of Life, Fill us with your love.

 

4. We pray for all who have died in the last year, and those who have been patiently waiting for treatment.

We remember Audrey Warren, her family and all those families mourning the loss of loved ones at this time.

We also pray for the successful roll out of the vaccine world-wide.

Jesus said I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me will live even though he dies, and everyone who lives by believing in me will never die’

(We end the prayers by saying…)

Glorious God and Lord of all life, Fill us with your love and sustain us by your indwelling Spirit. Amen

  

Every Blessing

John
