Father, this day we pray for all those who do not know You, or how to ask You to come into their hearts. Send them the gift of Your Holy Spirit.

 

Lord, you who brought peace in the midst of the storm, you are the only one who can bring peace to our world today. 

How much anger we see raging around us, Lord.

Be the source of peace in every gathering storm, Lord. You are the Prince of Peace, and we need you desperately.

 

In this time of riot and unrest, in America we pray for peace on their streets. Calm their tempers, and ease everyone’s anxieties, let there be peace.

 

Lord God, please prosper the work of those who are seeking a vaccine for the coronavirus. Strengthen those who are treating the sick, and comfort those who are mourning the loss of loved ones or living in fear of disease. Protect health care workers from both infections, and the anxious frustrations of the patients they are treating.

 

We pray especially for peace and healing for Ron and Lyn Batey, Kerry Woolfies and Len Miller help them will feel your love and your supporting hands around them.

 

This day we pray for all of your ministers and teachers,

Equip them with the tools they need to keep them connected to us in this challenging time of social distancing.

We pray especially for a safe re-gathering of our congregation in the future.

Heavenly Father we thank you because Your Word says that because You love us, You gave your only begotten Son to die for us. So, we thank you that Your love extends to every ethnic group, all genders, race, colour and  socio-economic classifications. Right now, we offer this prayer for the homeless, poor and hungry. We pray that you will bless all men, women and children who may be without shelter across the globe. Also we pray for divine covering and blessing upon the homeless, poor and hungry who have no one to take them in.  

We pray that Your Holy Spirit will flood them with warmth, security, protection and strength in Jesus Name. And we declare Psalm 46, that you shall be their “refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble”. We pray that they shall not fear even though the mountains may feel as though they are shaking; the Lord of Hosts shall be with them, because the God of Jacob is their refuge. We commit this prayer to You, in Jesus Name.

 

Amen
