Sunday 25th March 2018


As we enter Holy Week, we remember the pain and the passion of Jesus; and we bring now before our heavenly Father our own pains and those of our world.

• We pray for all leaders, both civil and religious; may they have the conviction of the sanctity of all human life, that they may always and everywhere defend it.

• We pray for all who feel that they have no reason to celebrate at this season. May the joy of Easter and the presence of the risen Lord come to them.

• We pray for those areas of the world where war and violence are a daily reality. We remember especially the people of Syria; may reconciliation and peace come to all troubled countries.

• We pray for all Christians who are persecuted because the authorities do not accept their beliefs and the practice of their religion. May our brothers and sisters be strengthened by the loving presence of Jesus.

• We pray for the members of our own families who have given up the practice of their faith. May we be good examples who will embody the love of Jesus for them, enabling them to turn again to the Lord.

• We pray for the sick and the housebound. May they know the healing touch of Christ.

• We pray for those who have died. May they share in the resurrection and experience the glory of God’s Kingdom.





Father, as we prepare to celebrate the wonder of the resurrection, hear our prayers and grant them in the name of Jesus, your Son,
