Sunday 30th July 2017


As we come together this day we ask God’s blessing on us as we pray.

We pray for the Pope, all priests and religious, and the faithful: that we may respond joyfully and fully to God’s word.

As we celebrate the feast of St Martha this weekend, we thank God for friendship and service, as Martha, Mary and Lazarus showed to Jesus.

We ask God to bless the earth: we pray that those with authority and influence make decisions that will save this beautiful world from pollution and spoiling.

We pray for those affected by forest fires: may their families and homes be safe.

As the Brexit talks continue, we pray that the representatives of all the countries involved will show fairness and common sense, working for the common good.

We pray for families where a child is ill: that they may receive all the treatment, support and compassion that they need.

We pray for all the members of the Royal Family, thanking God for the service they offer and the example they set.

As schools and colleges break for the summer we pray that staff and students alike will take this time for rest and recharging, enjoying their free time with family and friends.

Father God, we know that you are always ready to hear us, so we ask you to hear our prayer now.
