Cursillo prayers for the community. Week of 29th June 2020

Heavenly Father, we give thanks to You for the many benefits that we enjoy by your everlasting loving care for Your people. As we take faltering steps to lifting the lockdown we pray for our leaders and all who have responsibility for public health at this time. Be with them as they wrestle with the many challenges that the lifting of restrictions brings. Help us too to have a right judgement in adjusting our behaviour so that we too can play our part in the recovery plan.

Lord in Your mercy…………………

We give thanks for all those who care for others. Those whose work makes our lives safe and secure, those who have continued in their work throughout the pandemic and those who are facing unemployment or uncertainty as we begin to see the economic effects of our response to the crisis. Uphold all those who are anxious and troubled at this time of uncertainty. Be with them to reassure them that You are ever close.

 Lord in Your mercy…………………

We pray for those who are sick in mind. body or spirit. In particular we pray for those whose lives have been affected by Covid-19 and all those who have other medical needs for which treatment is delayed. We ask You Lord, to pour Your Holy Spirit into the hearts and minds of those who are lonely, isolated or fearful of the future, that they may find peace.

Lord in Your mercy…………………

Father we give thanks for our communities, be they village, town or city. We thank You for the outpouring of love that has manifested itself in the work of community volunteers and local initiatives to help the elderly and frail and those who are shielding. We pray that the bonds of friendship and community togetherness may continue long after the Covid 19 threat is minimised.

Lord in Your mercy…………………

We ask Your blessing on those who have died and those who mourn the loss of loved ones. We thank You for the work of those who minister to the bereaved, in particular thinking of the work of the ACC Covid-19 Bereavement Support group as they work in this Diocese.

Lord in Your mercy…………………

As we begin to open our churches again, we ask that You will keep us safe and give thanks that we are able to join together to worship You. Give strength and courage to all clergy and lay workers as they prepare for the reopening. We pray too for ourselves as we get used to the “new normal” that we will find ourselves in when we return.

We ask all this through Your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ.  Merciful Father……….
