Abba Father as we pray to you this day let us be reverent
in all we say and do. We ask you to bless our friends and
family and all whom we hold dear.
This week we pray that you will be with the homeless and
all who live on the streets. How dreadful not to have a place
to call your own and subsequently no possessions either.
Everything in a brown paper bag, how devastating to your
confidence or self esteem. Let us keep these people who are
our brothers and sisters in our hearts and prayers, and perhaps
make a difference to someone else’s life.
Merciful God, please be with those who are ill or dying, It takes
a special strength to help in those last few precious hours but
that strength comes when You Father, are also present and that is
the work of the Holy Spirit. The people who are looking on
need special support at this time and this can only come when
we are willing to go the extra mile and be there with them.
Thank you gracious God for all the blessings of the last week.
You in your infinite goodness never stop giving all day every
day, riches are heaped upon us, you simply can not stop giving.
We try to say thank you for everything, but Lord you know us
so well, we have human frailties and sometimes we forget.
Forgive us as we adore you and want to praise your name
and be seen as your children. Father we love you.
We ask these prayers in the name of your beloved son, Jesus. Amen
