Sunday 15th October 2017



Let us pray for a willingness to listen to Christ’s teaching and put it into practice.

• We pray for the Church: that all its bishops, priests, deacons and people may be ready to extend their knowledge and understanding of the message of the Gospel and act on it.

• We pray for all the victims of the wildfires in California: those who have died, those fleeing their homes and those who have lost everything, that the Lord in his mercy and compassion may save them

• We pray for those caught up in violence and insurgency especially in the Middle East and those traumatised as a result of crime or terrorism: that the perpetrators may have a change of heart.

• We pray for the governments of the world that they may always seek the ways of justice and mercy and be enabled by God’s powerful protection to lead their countries with honesty and integrity.

• Let us pray that all people who use violence against other people or against themselves may learn the Lord’s way of peace.

• Let us pray that our own knowledge and experience of God’s goodness will help us respond generously to the needs of others.

• We pray that the sick and disadvantaged may be upheld and comforted in the faith and supported in their lives by those around them

• Let us pray for those who have died in Christ, that every tear may be wiped away and that they may be welcomed with joy into God’s Kingdom of happiness, light and peace.


Father, in Christ your Son you have answered all our prayers. May we serve you in each other and come to eternal glory, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
