Intercessions for the Fifth Sunday after Easter By Mr Ian Farthing

The bidding for our prayers today is Lord in your mercy and the response is “Hear our prayer”
Let us pray.

Lord, as we bring to you our prayers of intercession, we ask you to open our ears to hear your voice, open our eyes to behold your glory, open our hearts to receive your grace, open our lips to show forth your praise.
We pray for your church today, gathering all around the world in tiny churches and great cathedrals to praise you and to hear your holy word.
Give us a sense of expectation as we come and inspiration as we go.
We ask you to bless those who preach, and teach the message of your salvation and we pray especially for our own Ministers for Charlie Joan and Sam as they seek to do your will and guide and support us through our spiritual and worldly journeys.

Lord we pray for all those recovering from surgery and for those in pain. You show yourself to those that are vunerable and make your home with the poor and the weak of this world.
We pray that you will protect the healthy, calm the frightened, give courage to those in pain, strengthen those who care for the sick, Console the bereaved and comfort the dying and give to the dead eternal life.
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. We remember

Lord as we delight in the rich variety of your creation we offer you our lives and as we go out today we pray that in our dealings with others that we may always remember the words of your son Jesus
A new command I give you “love one another” As I have loved you so you must love one another, by this all men will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.
Merciful Father:
accept these prayers for the sake of your Son,
our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
