Prayers for 5th Sunday of Easter
Prayer for the day: Almighty God, who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ have overcome death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life: grant that, as by your grace going before us you put into our minds good desires, so by your continual help we may bring them to good effect; through Jesus Christ our risen Lord. Amen.
Post Communion Prayer: Eternal God, whose Son Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life: grant us to walk in his way, to rejoice in his truth, and to share his risen life; who is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen.
Prayer for Missions: This week we pray for the work of Alwaye Medical Mission in Aluva, Kerala, India. Give thanks for the continuing work of the mission. Pray for the staff who tend to the needs of the marginalized, vulnerable and deprived sections of Indian society, the Dalits, the rural poor and the women.
In the Parish: We pray for the work of Age UK. Give thanks for the resources and support they provide to older people, here in Langley and the rest of the country. Pray more people will become involved with the Befriending Services—matching volunteers with elderly people through “Call In Time” and face-to-face befriending.
