Prayers of the People, 19 April 2020, Easter 2

2nd Sunday of Easter
Response to the prayers
Hear us Lord of Glory

Great Awakener, we, like the disciples find ourselves locked in, living in great fear and many doubts arise within us. We call upon You who walk with us daily, to help us not give in to fear but to trust in your saving grace.
Silence
In faith we pray,
Hear us Lord of Glory

Divine Nurturer, with our sister parishes of Forteau, and Fortune/Lamaline, we pray for your body, the church, that in times such as these we may face our fears and surrender to the flow of new life, working together for the wholeness of humanity. May we find You in the stillness and hear your prayer in us for the world. Help us to rebuild the soul of the world with love.
Silence
In faith we pray,
Hear us Lord of Glory


Beloved, we lift our hearts in prayer for your world, shattered and brought to a standstill by this pandemic. In this time of forced stillness, may we come to know that we are your beloved, that we are all connected, and help us put our trust in you for the healing of all of humanity.
Silence
In faith we pray,
Hear us Lord of Glory


Gentle Healer, we bring to you the many who are suffering, the lonely and depressed , those rejected both by society and the church, those who live in despair without hope, that all will come to know you as Creator and Lord of all….the Source of all Hope and Life.
Silence
In faith we pray,
Hear us Lord of Glory
