Sunday intercessions on
13 September 2020 (Trinity XIV)

Let us pray:

We pray for forgiveness and reconciliation in the world;
We pray for the nations of the world;
We pray for our own government and all governments;
We pray for the people of Oregon and in Lesbos;
We pray for the local community;
We pray for all who live with fear, anxiety and uncertainty;

On this Vocation Sunday, we pray:

Almighty God, look with compassion on the world
you have redeemed by the death of your Son Jesus Christ.
Move the hearts of many
to offer themselves for the sacred ministry of your Church,
so that by their lives and labours
your light may shine in the darkness
and the coming of your kingdom be advanced.

Lord have mercy,
Lord have mercy.

We pray for the forgiveness for disunity and division in the Church…

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer,
we pray for the Anglican Church of South America,
and for the Most Revd Gregory James Venables,
Presiding Bishop of South America and Bishop of Argentina.

Throughout the Church of Ireland this month,
we pray for the Diocese of Meath and Kildare,
for Bishop Pat Storey,
and for the people and priests of the diocese.

We pray for our bishop, Kenneth,
and for his ministry, mission and witness …

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray this week
for the Omey Group of Parishes in the Diocese of Tuam,
and the parishioners in Clifden, Moyard, Errislannan and Roundstone.

On this Vocation Sunday, we pray:

You have called us into the fellowship of your universal Church:
hear our prayer for your faithful people
that in their vocation and ministry
each may be an instrument of your love.

Christ have mercy,
Christ have mercy.

We pray for forgiveness for ourselves and for one another:

We pray for those in need:

In our hearts, we name individuals, families, neighbours,
care homes, hospitals, voluntary groups …

We pray for those who are sick or isolated,
at home or in hospital …
Alan … Margaret … Lorraine … Ajay… Joey … Ena …
We pray for those we have offered to pray for …

We pray for all who grieve and mourn at this time …
We remember, and give thanks for, the faithful departed …
may their families find comfort and support in the prayers of friends …
May their memories be a blessing to us …

On this Vocation Sunday, we pray:

Lord, as you called your disciples, call us now.
Open our ears to listen to your calling;
Open our eyes to see you;
Open our hearts to your love.
Help us to hear you, to experience your presence with us and to love you.
And loving you, let us serve you, our servant King.

Lord have mercy,
Lord have mercy.

A prayer for this day in the prayer diary
of the Anglican mission agency USPG
(United Society Partners in the Gospel):

God of Trinity, whose love extends to all your people,
we thank you that you bind us together
in faith, hope and love.
Help us always to build one another up in faith,
as we recognise your spirit in each person,
individually made in your own image. Amen.

Merciful Father …

These intercessions were prepared for Castleown Church, Kilcornan, Co Limerick, and Holy Trinity Church, Rathkeale, Co Limerick, on Sunday 13 September 2020 (Trinity XIV)
