Prayers for The Second Sunday of Epiphany, Year A : 19th January 2020

Please use and share these prayers as you will. There is no copyright on communications with God our Heavenly Father, his beloved son Jesus Christ our Lord or with the Holy Spirit and Lord of Life.


Almighty God take away all hatred and prejudice and whatever else may hinder us from being united as Christians. Help us to recognise that there is one Lord, one faith, one church, one God and Father of us all and so unite us in one holy bond of peace, faith and charity.

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

Faithful God your son Jesus Christ, calls ordinary people to follow him as disciples. Help us to respond to the call wholeheartedly without counting the cost. Help us to proclaim your gospel of hope and salvation here in the Wakatipu and wherever we travel.

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

Creator God ,we pray for our troubled world and ask that all Christians might work together to bring to an end the suffering caused by war, violence, injustice, inequality, disease and poverty. Help us to bring healing, justice and solidarity to the world.

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

Loving God as we pray for all those who are troubled, we ask that you may guide and strengthen them through their times if trial. We pray also for those who assist and nurture the sick, first responders in emergency services, those engaged in the caring professions and for family members who look after loved ones and especially for children who care for parents. <AUSTRALIAN BUSHFIRES, NAMES incl Marjorie, Russell, Anders & Sophie, Eric, Joanna>

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

Merciful God your love reaches beyond the grave. At the end of our days on earth be with us, with those we love and with those whom we love who have gone before us. We pray now for those who have recently died and those bereaved by their passing. <NOELENE TAIT>

(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.

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

Father God we especially pray for our own role in doing the true work of Christmas. May we be the ones who radiate the Light of Christ, every day, in every way, in all that we do and in all that we say.


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

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