Today Lord grant an awareness of your grace to all who worship you. Grant to your faithful people pardon and peace, that they may be cleansed from all their sins, and serve you with a quiet mind and a joyful heart. Help them to pray believing in Jesus. I ask it in his name – AMEN.
I pray today Lord for those who are dying. If they are distressed at leaving dear ones may they know that they will be able to help from the other side and that everlasting arms of purpose and of love enclose all souls. Help them to trust you all the way. I ask it in Jesus’ name – AMEN.
I pray today O Lord, for Catholic priests, monks and nuns as they pursue their lonely lives of humility, service and obedience. In their times of doubt and questioning reassure them that you are close to them and honour their sacrifice and vocational dedication. In Jesus’ name – AMEN.
I pray today Lord for the work of the Salvation Army and for all who care for the poor, the lonely, the hungry and the needy. Strengthen them with the assurance that they are Christ’s hands and heart in today’s world. Keep them steadily at it. I ask it in Christ’s name – AMEN.
I pray today Lord, for the work of Alcoholics Anonymous. Make them even more committed to seeking out and helping their fellow sufferers. Where one member falters, help the rest to rally round and to help the struggling one to resolve to start again. I ask in Jesus’ name – AMEN.
I pray today for children of every race and nationality who suffer from hunger, from physical or mental illness, from cruelty, from lack of love and security. Provide them with significant adults who will protect them and provide for them. I ask it in the name of Jesus Christ – AMEN.
I pray today Lord for ministers of the gospel who feel that they are failures and regret ever offering for the ministry. Help them to lay hold on your patience and recall that your claim is only on their faithfulness and obedience. Keep them praying. I ask in Jesus Christ’s name – AMEN.
