These intercessions were prepared for Trinity Sunday, 7 June 2020, in the Rathkeale and Kilnaughtin Group of Parishes. However, the churches have been closed temporarily because of the Covid-19 pandemic:

Let us pray on this Trinity Sunday:

May ‘the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ,
the love of God,
and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with all of’ us
(II Corinthians 13: 13):

Loving Father,
how glorious is your name in all the world (Psalm 8: 1).

Comfort all who are victims of racism;
challenge us when we become too comfortable.

Comfort those who are isolated and alone;
sustain and protect frontline workers;

Give hope to schools and places of education,
give wisdom to our government,
guide all who make difficult decisions,
help us to protect our communities and ourselves.

Give wisdom to people in America
crying for justice,
condemning racism,
seeking peace.

Lord have mercy,
Lord have mercy.

Lord Jesus Christ:
you call us to bring your love into all the world,
regardless of differences,
without discrimination (Matthew 28: 19):

We pray for the Church,
that we may share that life generously and in abundance.

We pray for churches that are closed this morning,
that the hearts of the people may remain open
to the love of God, and to the love of others.

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray this week
for La Iglesia Anglicana de Mexico
and Most Revd Francisco Moreno,
Presiding Bishop and Bishop of Northern Mexico.

In the Church of Ireland, we pray this month for
the Diocese of Kilmore, Elphin and Ardagh,
and for Bishop Ferran Glenfield.

We pray for our Bishop Kenneth;

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer,
we pray for the vulnerable and anxious in our dioceses.

Christ have mercy,
Christ have mercy.

Holy Spirit,
you are the breath of all creation and all life (Genesis 1: 2):

We pray for ourselves and for our needs,
for healing, restoration and health,
in body, mind and spirit.

We give thanks for new life …
We give thanks for the birth of Verity Rebecca …
and ask for your blessings on her parents, Amy and Damien …
her grandparents, Jennifer and Niall …
her great-grandmother, Ruby …

We pray for one another,
for those who are alone and lonely …
for those who are sick, at home or in hospital …
Alan ... Ajay … Charles … Tom …
Lorraine … James … Terry …
Niall … Linda ... Basil … Simon …

We pray for those who have broken hearts …
for those who live with disappointment …
We pray for all who are to be baptised,
We pray for all preparing to be married,
We pray for those who are about to die …

We pray for those who mourn and grieve…
for Michelle, Ian, and the Shorten and O’Riordan families …
for Lynn and the O’Gorman, Hodge and Latchford families …
for those who mourn PJ and who mourn Sherry …
for the Doyle family and those who mourn Margaret …
may their memories be a blessing …

We pray for those who have asked for our prayers …
and for those we have offered to pray for …

Lord have mercy,
Lord have mercy.

A prayer on Trinity Sunday,
in the prayer diary of the Anglican mission agency USPG,
United Society Partners in the Gospel:

Let us give thanks for the perfect model of partnership
we have in the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Merciful Father, …
