Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord;
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall
be, world without end. Amen
The first reading is from the book of Ezekiel, chapter 37, verses 1-14.
This is the word of the Lord, thanks be to God
during Lent the second reading is omitted
Merciful God, we pray for the many people who have contracted the coronavirus in France, Italy, England and in other parts of the world. Bring comfort to those grieving loved ones have died and peace to those worried, fearful and uncertain as the virus spreads.
We also pray for governments and authorities who are developing strategies to contain and deal with the virus and those in the health services who may be risking their own lives to care for sick patients.
We especially pray for the Corona Virus situation in Menton and the procedures that have been put into force to try to halt its spread. Help us all to be responsible in the things that we do in our lives to prevent the spread of the virus by taking heed of the recommended precautions and avoiding situations which may make things worse.
Lord, in your Mercy: Hear our Prayer
Creator, Guide us to a deeper understanding of the difference between what we want and what we need, trusting that you will provide all that we need.
Teach us to become more “God-centered” and less “self-centered” in our daily actions and decisions.
Lord, in your mercy: Hear our prayer
The one who created love, fill our hearts with peace, open our hearts to see your active presence in our daily lives. Your church is still alive, we are still your people. Although we cannot be together at this time, strengthen your church. We pray for our bishop, archdeacons, our church wardends the churches along the Riviera and Father David who safely returned to England.Lord, in your mercy: Hear our prayer
Holy father, we lift up the Queen, her family, the governments of France, Italy, the UK and the United States as well as those on our hearts. Surround each leader with your wisdom and help them to hear you.Lord, in your mercy: Hear our prayer
We lift up those who are ill, suffering from loneliness, in hospital or fearful. Let them know that you are along side them, offering your love.
We think of those who have died, comfort their families and friends. Father, there are some people on our heart who need you, we give them to you knowing you will provide.Lord, in your mercy: Hear our prayer
In closing, Gracious Lord you know what each of us needs at this moment, surround us with your love so that we may love others as you have commanded us to do.
Merciful Father accept these prayers for the sake of your son, our Saviour Jesus Christ.
