Bidding Prayers for Sunday 30th August 2015

With humble hearts let us bring our needs before the Father.

We pray for our leaders that they may always be attentive to honouring the less fortunate and not be swayed by people’s importance in the eyes of the world.

We pray for those who are powerful and rich according to the measure of our society, that they will recognise the passing nature of this privilege and commit themselves humbly to follow the Lord.

We pray for those who feel lonely and unloved, may we be generous in reaching out with practical support and love to them.

We pray for us all here present, that we may receive the grace of humility.

For all refugees, migrants and victims of war, that they may find security, be restored to dignity and live in peace. We pray especially for those who lost their lives in the lorry on the Austrian border and in the boats which capsized off Libya. May they rest in peace.

Father, we thank you for your love and place before you our heartfelt prayers. We ask you to hear and answer them through Christ our Lord.
