POST COMMUNION PRAYER: Holy Father, who gathered us here around the table of your Son to share this meal with the whole household of God: in that new world where you reveal the fullness of your peace, gather people of every race and language to share in the eternal banquet of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
For Missions and the World: We pray for Andy & Val Simcock and the Glowing Life Foundation orphanage in Thailand. We pray for the boys and staff there, and for the provision of new staff with the right skills and experience. We ask that Val and Andy may have wisdom, discernment and courage when deciding which children to take on.
In the Parish: We pray for those who are newly married and those who have recently had babies. We ask for God’s blessing on them as they adjust to this new phase in their life, that they would grow together in love for one another, and be protected from harm.
