The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. (Psalm 145:14)

Let us pray for the Church and for the World, and let us thank God for his goodness, in the silence of our hearts.

God of love hear the cry of those who yearn for love; fractured families, broken homes neglected, unwanted, alone.

{Silence}

God of love, in your mercy hear our prayer

God of justice hear the cry of those who yearn for justice; persecuted and oppressed, exploited, ill-treated, broken.

{Silence}

God of justice, in your mercy hear our prayer

God of peace hear the cry of those who yearn for peace; in battle zones and broken states, frightened, fearful, anxious

{Silence}

God of peace, in your mercy hear our prayer

God of healing hear the cry of those who yearn for healing; physical and spiritual hurting, weakened, depressed

{Silence}

God of healing, in your mercy hear our prayer

God of mercy hear the cry of those who yearn for mercy; convicted, in need of your Grace, contrite, humble, bowed down,

{Silence}

God of mercy, in your mercy hear our prayer

I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. (Psalm 116:1,2)

May we know The peace of God The love of God The justice of God The healing and mercy of God This day and all days Amen

Merciful Father,

accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
