Prayer Through The Ages
We offer you our hands, O Lord, to do your work; our lips to sing your praise; our life to proclaim your glory and our heart to serve you in our neighbour; for Jesu’s sake. Amen.
Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179)
Our Prayers and Prayer Requests
You call us to speak to you in prayer– even when the places we would usually go to are not available. Help us to know you Spirit’s presence wherever we pray. Today we especially pray for...
For Mary and Tom Kovoor who ask for prayers for the family of Siby Cherian. Tom’s cousin who passed away unexpectedly last week.
Father of our souls, Mother of our hearts, we know your love for us is limitless beyond imagining. You care for us as a loving parent. Through our smallest Lenten sacrifices, help us to become less selfish and more aware of your ways.
For those prayers too personal to share with anyone but You.
Lord, we know you receive what is in our hearts. Let us be inspired by your words and by the actions of your son, Jesus.
Help us to use our lives to reflect your glory and to serve others as your son Jesus did.
We are saddened by the deaths of 500,000+ of our fellow citizens. We join everyone across our nation in mourning.
We ask for guidance for parents, children, youth and teachers adjusting to new ways of learning.
Guide us to make sacrifices this Lent in the spirit of self-denial and with greater attention to you and to those around us.
Help us to believe that you will grant us this because of the sacrifice Jesus made for us.
We pray for their families, friends and all those they influenced either directly or indirectly. That they may keep close the positive memories of those they have lost and carry on with their daily lives in peace..
God, you call us back to you with all of our hearts. We feel your call for us deep in our hearts and we know you want us back as much as we want to return. Give us the wisdom to know how to return. Make our journey back to you this Lent one of grace, forgiveness and gentle love.
We pray for protection for the vulnerable the elderly, the poor, those with health issues and all who at risk..
For doctors and scientists diligently working to heal the sick.
For all persons on the frontlines, especially Alayne Snyder, Dr Johnny and Riny Kovoor. and Erik Lindholm who are risking their lives to help those who are sick and dying
Lord we continue to remember that our call is always to respond to the good news in Jesus. We are a people of hope we need to declare and model good news in these difficult times. We place our prayers before you through your Son, Jesus. Amen.
