Intercessions ~ Sunday of the Holy Trinity

On Trinity Sunday we ask that as we are drawn into God's inner life/ we would find not only God/ but each other/ and all the world in its poverty,/ need and weakness./ We pray to the Lord.

June is the month honoring the Sacred Heart of Jesus./ We pray to know the loving kindness of God in Christ/ and to allow ourselves to be changed and evolved by that love./ We pray to the Lord.

We entrust the children of the world to our prayer as they face perils in so many places./ We ask for the movement of hearts which will make the care of the world's children a priority of love./ We pray to the Lord.

This past week kept the anniversary of D-Day which began the Liberation of Europe seventy years ago./ We pray boldly for an end to wars/ and for our own inner liberation from anything that would prevent the full realization of God's rule in our lives./ We pray to the Lord.

We pray to be careful stewards of our planet/ using its resources wisely and justly/ and guardians of the animals,/ plants,/ water and air/ as these are God's gifts to us./ We pray to the Lord.

We continue to pray for the nations of the world,/ today praying for the people and lands of  Iceland,/ India,/ Indonesia,/ Iran,/ Iraq,/ Ireland and Israel,/ We pray to the Lord.

And finally we pray for those who have died,/ calling to mind that so many die violently,/ suddenly,/ alone or without remembrance./ We pray to the Lord.


  1. Your Intercessions are always so relative to the world. Thank you for focusing our prayers on those who need it. You never forget the children, the needy or the earth itself. Let us pray to the Lord for it all every week. Amen.

  2. I am going to say thank you here also. They are perfectly all encompassing. I want you to know that we appreciate that you share them with us.

  3. When your blog recently started posting on Google+, I knew that it would be something that I would follow. Thanks for these Intercessions. I see that you post them each week which is wonderful. I will be keeping a watch out for future postings.
