Barbara's Intercessions for Easter Sunday 17th April 2022

 

EASTER DAY  17th  APRIL 2022 

On this very special day we come before our Heavenly Father in the sure knowledge that we can bring Him our thanks, our praise, our sorrows and our pleadings, through the ultimate sacrifice and the glorious resurrection of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. 

 

Father, we thank you for the wonder of Easter.

We pray for the whole Church and remember that there are many in countries where it is not possible for our brothers and sisters to worship you openly and it is dangerous for them to claim the name of our Risen Lord. Father protect them and strengthen them

We ask for God’s guidance for all who work in our diocese as they face the many, diverse problems which seem to dominate us all.  May they see a way forward to a fruitful and sustainable future when the Good News of Jesus will be widely proclaimed and received.  

We pray especially for the clergy our team: for Joachim, Paul, Pat, Gregg and most of all we pray for Linda – for her early and complete healing.

Lord, in your mercy  Hear our prayer.

 

Father, we ask your blessings on our Queen as she faces some of the limitations of advanced age.  We pray that she will be able to take comfort, knowing she has been doing your will over so many years and knowing that she is much loved by so many thousands of her people.  May she find support and comfort in her own family.

 

Lord, in your mercy   Hear our prayer.

 

Lord, we pray for all in authority – for governments throughout the world.  We pray for the world to be led by statesmen with integrity and a real desire for peace and justice for all. 

We pray, most earnestly, for all who are caught up in the horrors of war and terrorism and those who are overcome by natural disaster.  May they be able to see the hope of Easter through the turmoil. 

Lord – we pray for peace.

Lord, in your mercy  Hear our prayer.

 

 

Father we pray for all around us – here in Ladock and in Grampound Road.  For our schoolchildren during the holidays.

We pray for all who would love to be here in your house today but who, for whatever reasons, are unable to do so.

We ask your blessings on all who are ill and those who care for them.  We thank you for the skills of all our health workers and the gentle patience and kindness they bring to those who are in extreme need.

 

Lord, in your mercy   Hear our prayer.

 

We ask for God’s blessing on all who have died recently and we remember

 

Walter Skelding

Inez Caff

Nancy Hughes

Kathleen Crocker

Freddie Richards

whose year’s mind it is at this time. 

May they rest in peace  And rise in glory. 

 

Heavenly Father, we thank you for the wonders of spring around us – the beauty of the flowers here in Church and all around us in the gardens and countryside.

AND we thank you for the joy of chocolate!! -  and the fun of decorated eggs, as we sing out our Eastertide Alleluias.

 

Merciful Father,

Accept these prayers

For the sake of your Son,

Our Saviour Jesus Christ

Amen.
