Prayers – 06 February 2022


DIOCESE Praying together: for Refugees Almighty and Merciful God, You that are the Father, And have experienced hate and mistrust upon your Son, Please grant us an understanding heart; We pray for refugees, asylum seekers and unaccompanied asylum-seeking children; Bless those whose home is no more, And those who welcome the stranger as their own; Lord of Light, You are the One and only who truly knows the limits of the mind; Help us shine from within. Let us be the tiny matches carrying your light where we see darkness; And lead us in simplicity with others; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

This coming Sunday is the 70th Anniversary of the Accession to the Throne of Queen Elizabeth II and The Church of England offers the following prayer:

Almighty God, the fountain of all goodness,
bless our Sovereign Lady, Queen Elizabeth,
and all who are in authority under her;
that they may order all things
in wisdom and equity, righteousness and peace,
to the honour and glory of your name
and the good of your Church and people;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
