Sunday 23 September 2017: 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time


You welcomed the little children, Lord, so we can be confident in your loving kindness as we place our needs before you:

• We pray for peacemakers throughout the world. Give wisdom and patience to negotiators, and help us all to spread peace by the way we live and speak to those around us.

• We pray for all those affected by the earthquake in Mexico. Comfort those who are injured or bereaved and give strength to all those involved in the rescue and aid operation.

• We pray for our political leaders as they continue to explore the best way forward for Brexit. Guide them in making wise and compassionate decisions.

• We pray that we will take good care of creation and really take seriously our responsibility for the earth, our common home. Give us a renewed determination to make a difference where we can and bring healing to our planet.

• We pray for each one of us; that we will be given the grace to accept and carry our cross. Gant us your peace as we trust in you to walk with us every step of our journey.

Loving Lord, we ask you to hear our prayers and graciously grant them through Jesus Christ our Lord.
