Intercessions ~ Seventh Sunday of Easter

We pray for the Church of God / asking that where it is weak,/ sinful or mistaken/ - integrity would be restored and spiritual energy rediscovered./ We pray to the Lord.

We pray for travelers and their safety./ For soldiers and sailors who are damaged by war./ For the healing of our families and friends/ mindful of those who are sick/, in troubled marriages,/ or where there is addiction or financial problems./ We pray to the Lord.

We ask that our personal,/ familial and communal prayer would be heartfelt/ and that we would know true repentance for our own sins/ and the sins of the Church and the world./ We pray to the Lord.

In the season for weddings/ we ask God to bless the couples who will marry this summer,/ asking that they would be strengthened for the self-sacrifice required of a lasting and happy marriage./ We pray to the Lord.

As the feast of Pentecost approaches,/ we ask for a new out-pouring of the Holy Spirit that will bear an increase of faith,/ hope and love around the world./ We pray to the Lord.

We continue our prayer for the countries of the world,/ today praying for the people and lands of Greece,/ Greenland,/ Grenada,/ Guadeloupe,/ Guam,/ Guatemala and Guinea./ We pray to the Lord.

We pray for the children of the world who are on their way to birth,/ asking that they be welcomed and protected/ rather than refused or rejected./ We pray to the Lord.

And we pray for those who have died,/ asking for the forgiveness of sins/ and the peaceful and full life of the Kingdom./ We pray to the Lord.
