RP Bidding Prayers - 17th September 2017



God of life and love, on Home Mission Sunday and conscious that you call us to spread your Good News to those around us, we place our prayers before you.


We pray for the emergency services and all those caught up in the Parsons Green incident on Friday morning. Lord, hear us.

We pray for the Church: may we always give thanks for the compassion of God and offer that same healing to all we meet. Lord, hear us.

We pray that all those whose lives have been torn apart by recent natural disasters will find hope in the midst of devastation and will receive the help and support they need at this time. Lord, hear us.

We pray that there might be an end to the escalating tensions between North Korea and the rest of the world so that people might live together in peace, security and mutual cooperation. Lord, hear us.

We pray for teachers and students at the start of the academic year, that the days ahead might be an exciting search for shared knowledge, understanding and awareness of the lives and needs of others. Lord, hear us.

We pray that young people who are starting work for the first time will have all the support and encouragement that they need at such a landmark time in their lives. Lord, hear us.

We pray, on Home Mission Sunday, that our parish might be a source of love and friendship for everybody who lives within its boundaries and that we might reach out to others in a practical witness of our shared faith in a loving God. Lord, hear us.



Lord God, confident of your unfailing love, we ask you to listen to our prayers which we offer you in the name of your Son, Jesus, and your Holy Spirit of compassion. Amen.
