Prayers for Intercession - Respect Life Sunday

  • For the Church, the deeply loved family of God.  May we continue to build parishes where doors are open and all are made to feel welcome.
  • For all leaders in our worshipping communities, lay and ordained.  May they minister with respect, assurance and tenderness, especially towards those who seek healing and forgiveness.
  • For all of us who have received the gift of life.  May we appreciate more deeply that we are made in the image and likeness of God.
  • For parents who carry burdens of loss, pain or grief of any kind.  May they encounter care and compassion within our community and feel God’s healing love.
