You are invited to join the parish in prayer for the following:
Give and it will come back to you.
We pray for those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Lord God, alert us to our carelessness and wastefulness and teach us to share from the abundance in our midst. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
We pray for our country
As we celebrate Heritage Day, let us pray for a renewed spirit of Ubuntu, reconnecting prayerfully in celebrating our heritage. We pray for stillness to restore and to bring healing and peace. Our Prayer for Africa: God bless Africa, guard her children, guide her leaders and give us peace. Amen.
The healing ministry, especially
World Environmental Health Care Day
A day which encompasses the assessment and control of those environmental factors that can potentially affect our health. Lord grant us the wisdom to focus on and address all the factors that impact our behaviour negatively. Encourage us to work towards preventing diseases and creating a healthy and supportive environment.
Father God we pray for all those affected by adverse weather conditions around the world and pray for your hand of mercy upon them. We pray for our own country and are grateful for the blessing of rain. Lord, this is your world and we your people: hear our prayers.
We pray for our scholars and teachers as they end their academic term and embark on a welcome school holiday. May God’s sight be on them in an effort to keep them out of harm’s way and off the streets so that they may refresh their minds and replenish in the spirit and joyfully challenge the final quarter. Proverbs 3: 1 My child, do not forget my teaching but let your heart keep my commandments.
Father God, we pray for all those caring for vulnerable children, that they may serve wholeheartedly with grace, strength and the knowledge of your holy word. God of hope, grant these your children who seek shelter and protection an overflow of abundant blessings.
