Let us Pray

Thank you God our Father for being with us all the time.
We are glad that you are our Father and that you love us as your children.
Bless all your children around the world, that they may be free and know your love.

Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy

Thank you Jesus for being with us
at Christmas and at all times.
Help us to love one another as you love us.

Christ have mercy
Christ have mercy

Holy Spirit,
stay with us at all times,
be with those we love,
be with those who are sick, sad and lonely,
and be a comfort to all who are suffering loss.

Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy

In our prayers this morning and all this week,
let us we remember those who died recently
and those who died at this time of the year, including Cathy …
May their memories be blessings unto us

The prayer today in the prayer diary of the Anglican mission agency USPG (United Society Partners in the Gospel) invites us to pray:

O Lord,
may we feel the presence of the
Holy Spirit in our daily lives.
Help us to be led by the Spirit.

Merciful Father …
