Let us all join together in prayer.

In this time of plague, trouble and confusion, O Lord, we pray that you will keep us in your mercy and protection. In lockdown, Oh Lord, unlock our faith so that we may live in expectation, not despair. We are all children of light: lighten our darkness.

 

Lord meet as in the silence.

And hear our prayer.

 

We give thanks for all those who love their neighbours: in particular for those who care for the sick, and the many who provide the services our society relies upon.

 

Lord meet as in the silence.

And hear our prayer.

 

We pray for those who are deeply worried about people they love.

 

Lord meet as in the silence.

And hear our prayer.

 

We give thanks for St Peter’s; we pray for God’s blessing on Julia, on Sarah, on Matthew, and their families. We pray for the people who will lead St Peter’s in the absence of a vicar, that they may be granted wisdom, energy and enthusiasm. We pray that with God’s guidance we may find a sympathetic and inspiring new leader. And we give thanks for all who worship here, make music and support our Church. We look forward to the time when we may worship again in person.

 

We pray for those who have recently died, and for those who grieve for them, and also for those whose anniversaries we remember.

 

Lord meet as in the silence.

And hear our prayer.

 

Oh Lord, every day in this parish, hundreds of prayers are offered to you by many people inside and outside this Church, like arrows shot to heaven. They echo our thoughts and fears, our joys and our sorrows. They continue our formal worship into our everyday lives. Oh Lord in your mercy hear our prayers now, and listen for those we will utter up in the coming weeks and years.

 

Merciful God, accept these prayers for the sake of your son our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen
