Intercessions for the Fifth Sunday after Trinity

Dear Lord, we have all been in lockdown for 13 weeks and every Sunday on Zoom we have been able to see our friends from Church but some we haven’t and we hope that they are all doing well and have escaped the Covid 19 virus, we pray for everyone in our congregation and look forward to seeing them all on the 19th July 2020. We pray for all churches in this Diocese of Southwark and that they will open again successfully with no threat of closure as a result of financial losses.
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer

Gracious Lord we pray for Father Peter Hart who is to leave with his wife Beverley and take up a new position in Worcester Diocese. May they enjoy their life there as much as we have enjoyed having them with us. God bless them both.
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer

We pray for His Holiness the Pope, Justin Welby, our Archbishop of Canterbury, Christopher our Bishop of Southwark. We pray for Her Majesty the Queen and all the Royal Family. 

Dear Lord, Let us pray for the families of those who have died from Covid 19 and all the NHS carers who cared for them devotedly in hospitals and care homes, their wonderful work will never be forgotten and though we are sad now the future is bright if we need care ourselves in the future. They have really shown their worth. 
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer

We pray for those who are to be admitted to communion on 19th July: Evia Bliss, Theo Corpetti, Annah Kabongo, Louisa Kingston, Effie King, Isabella Mitchell-Fry
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer

We pray for all those who are sick amongst our congregation and all those who care for them: Julia Holboro, Luci Mitchell-Fry, Joan Pritchard, Johanna Procter, Kevin Willoughby, Max Weston. Bring them healing and wholeness we pray.
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer

We remember especially Mary Smith, Revd Canon Graham Foulis Brown, Norma Williams, Gulam Abu Saleh, Eric Ewington and Ted Wheadon who now live with you in heaven and we will not see them again. Gather them in your loving arms dear Lord and give them words of comfort in their final hours. Amen.

Merciful Father, accept these prayers for the sake of your Son Our Saviour Jesus Christ, Amen.
