23 A SERVICE OF THE WORD Trinity 3 docx



Job 30.1-11

2 Corinthians 6.1-13



Mark 4.35-41

On that day, when evening had come, Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Let us go across to the other side.’ And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him. A great gale arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him up and said to him, ‘Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?’ He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, ‘Peace! Be still!’ Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. He said to them, ‘Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?’ And they were filled with great awe and said to one another,‘Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?’

Sermon for Trinity 3, June 20, 2021



From Amanda Bart-Plange



Mighty God, when the waves of life threaten to overwhelm us, forgive us if we blame you or others for our troubles. Teach us to find you in the storms of life and give us the faith those early disciples lacked to always believe that you will bring calm and peace.

Everlasting God, we pray for our church St Peters, for our Clergy and for their families.  We ask for your blessing on our work as we seek to create a church community that welcomes visitors and strangers, provides a refuge for those who feel threatened or alone, a refuge from life’s troubled waters.

Lord, in the silence, hear our prayer.

Loving God, as we see the brokenness of our world we pray for healing among the nations; for fair shares of the Coronavirus Vaccines; for food where there is hunger; for freedom where there is oppression; for joy where there is pain; that your love may bring peace to all your children.

Lord, in the silence, hear our prayer.

Holy God, we thank you for the joy of human love, and for all those among whom we live and work. We especially pray for those among our friends and families who do not know you, or whose faith has been shaken. Help them to see that “We have an Anchor that keeps the soul, steadfast and sure while the billows roll, fastened to the Rock which cannot move, grounded firm and deep in the Saviour’s love!”

Lord, in the silence, hear our prayer.

Merciful God when our lives feel chaotic and desolate because of illness or sorrow, help us to hear your holy word for by that word Jesus calmed the storm and by it he healed and made people whole. We pray for those who have requested our prayers; help them to triumph over their Goliaths and help them put their trust in You and in the knowledge and skills of the doctors and nurses who are treating them.

Lord, in the silence, hear our prayer.   

Loving God we pray for those saddened by the death of someone close and dear to them, for members of our families who have died and whose anniversary we recall. Remembering Alfred Adkin and Kenneth Dobson.

Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord and may light perpetual shine upon them.

Gracious God help us to know that the one who calmed the waves on the Sea of Galilee is present with us day by day and that he cares for us and can calm the waves of our lives. Help us to trust more fully and more deeply in you in all that we are involved with in the days to come.

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