Let us pray for all people, everywhere, whoever they are and whatever their needs are.

O God, you created us and you love us as our father, teach us to trust you and help us all know that you love us completely. Help us to trust that you will always answer our prayers and that we must not only ask, but also listen and look for the answer.

We pray for those who hate, that they may learn to love. Grant, Lord that all people may live without fear and hatred as they walk in your ways.

Lord in your mercy
Hear our prayer

As we remember Her Majesty the Queen on the fiftieth anniversary of her coronation, we pray for the Queen and the royal family, for the monarchy and for ourselves as her subjects, that all may be strengthened and blessed to live in peace and harmony.

Help us to be one while respecting each others’ differences, celebrating our variety while facing a common purpose and each pursuing gladly our own mission as we journey through life. Strengthen your church, Lord, to be united in love and prayer.

Lord in your mercy
Hear our prayer

We pray for all those taking important exams in the month ahead, and for teachers and families who struggle to support and encourage them.

Lord in your mercy
Hear our prayer

We pray for all who suffer in mind or body and for those who care for them. We pray for the sick; for those who mourn; for those without faith, hope or love.

We pray for any known to us who are in special need of our prayers at this time. We remember them now in a moment of silence ….

Lord in your mercy
Hear our prayer

Jesus Christ is the Light of the World, a light which no darkness can quench.

We remember before God those who have died and light a candle to symbolise the light of Christ which eternally shines and brings hope.

You turn our darkness into light; 
in your light shall we see light


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

Gathering our prayers and praises into one, let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has taught us.

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
On earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours
Now and for ever. Amen.
