Bidding Prayers for Sunday 26th July 2015
Let us bring our prayers to our loving and compassionate Father God.
We pray for the God’s servants in the Church: for the Pope, the cardinals, the bishops and all who work amongst God’s people to bring them the Good News.
We pray for our beautiful world, God’s wonderful creation; and we thank God for man’s curiosity and his ability to research, that leads to greater discoveries.
We ask for God’s blessing on all those, particularly young people, injured or killed in sporting or leisure activities; may they be able to enjoy their holidays and free time in safety and security.
We pray for the victims, family and friends of all those killed or injured in the mill explosion in Cheshire; may they receive the help and treatment they need and feel God’s healing love.
We pray for older people who find themselves less able than they used to be, in mind, body and spirit; may God’s compassionate love enfold them and may their family, friends and other agencies give them the care and love they need.
We thank God for the summer holidays: may the children, young people and their families enjoy the free time and recharge their batteries ready for the coming year.
We thank you, O heavenly Father, that you have trusted us with a share in the salvation of the world. We offer these prayers in your name, O loving and generous God, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
