Prayers for: 15th September 2019

13th Sunday After Trinity—Proper 19

Prayer of the Day: Almighty God, who called your Church to bear witness that you were in Christ reconciling the world to yourself: help us to proclaim the good news of your love, that all who hear it may be drawn to you; through him who was lifted up on the cross, and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen

Post Communion: God of all mercy, in this Eucharist you have set aside our sins and given us your healing: grant that we who are made whole in Christ may bring that healing to this broken world, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Intercessions

For the World and Mission: This week‘s Focus: United Society-Partners in the Gospel associate Hope For the Future, which facilitates and trains communities to engage their political representatives on issues of climate change.   Pray for: political leaders across the world that they may engage wisely with issues involving the planet; all who by engaging in small ways in their own communities contribute positively to a global response.

In the Parish: We pray for artists, performers and musicians who make our lives more beautiful. We pray as they seek inspiration, they will be drawn to God, to His love and salvation. Pray Christian artists will be bold in communicating the gospel of Christ; will have integrity in creating works of art—through writing, drawing, film producing, photography, etc.
