Everlasting God, open our eyes, that we might see your future. Open our ears, that we may hear your future. Open our mouths, that we might speak positively and praise your future.

(LONGER pause for silent, personal reflection) Lord, in your mercy: hear our prayer

Holy God, we pray for your church throughout the world, for sceptics and believers, for clergy, for all those who seek God at home, at work, in the streets, and in the pews, for all who search for life. We pray for the stillness to listen to the voice of the Spirit and to recognise what you have done, and are still doing, for us.


(Short Silence) Lord, in your mercy: hear our prayer


Creator God, you gave to us the care of our planet. We pray for a future when we will be better stewards of your wonderful creation.


(Short Silence) Lord, in your mercy: hear our prayer


Loving God, we raise before you the sick and the suffering and ask that even in difficult times, we may honour you and encourage others by our prayers for those who are suffering today. <Joanna, Mr McLean, Simon etc>


(Short Silence) Lord, in your mercy: hear our prayer


Gracious God, you give light to those in darkness who walk in the shadow of death; so remember in your kingdom your faithful servants, that death may be for them the gate to life and to unending fellowship with you.


(Short Silence) Lord, in your mercy: hear our prayer


Almighty and eternal God, hear our prayers and thanksgivings for all whom we remember this day who have gone before us. Now safe and sure in the resurrection, may they rest in peace as they surely have risen in glory.


(Short Silence) Lord, in your mercy: hear our prayer


Gracious God, our Father, in a moment of silence we offer you our personal prayers for ourselves, our partners, families, friends, for all whom we love and for our personal ministries.


(Longer Silence) Lord, in your mercy: hear our prayer


Faithful God, you have promised to be with us and to guide us to a future of goodness and hope. As we travel into those times ahead keep us positive, keep us seeking your truth and justice, help us to feel your presence and see your answers to the prayers we have made to you this morning. AMEN.

(Longer Silence) Lord, in your mercy: hear our prayer

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