Sunday 19th August

We bring our needs to the Lord of life who has gathered us around his table:

We pray for the ordained ministers in the Church: that they will continually draw life and inspiration from their celebration of the Eucharist and be sustained in their mission, guiding God’s people. Lord, hear us.

• We pray for those who are engaged in ecumenical dialogue: that, instead of being divided by our different understanding of the truth, the time will come when all Christians are united. Lord, hear us.

• We pray for anyone affected by the Genoa bridge collapse: that the bereaved families find the strength to face life in the future and that lessons are learnt in all countries about the importance of careful, well-planned construction. Lord, hear us.

• We pray for the young people who have received, or are waiting for, exam results: that in the midst of their celebrations or disappointment they understand that their worth does not depend on academic success. Lord, hear us.

• We pray for everyone who is reflecting on what to do with their future: may they be filled with hope as they find the practical help and support necessary to discern the right path. Lord, hear us.

• We pray for a renewal of our love for the Eucharist: that through our sharing of the bread and wine of Holy Communion we will be transformed and enabled to take God’s love to all those we meet. Lord, hear us.

Loving Father, hear and grant our prayers the prayers we offer you, in the love of the Holy Spirit, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
