Prayers this week for our Parish and the wider world
For the World… give thanks to God for those who harvest our food; pray that we may acknowledge that what we have comes from God, and show us ways in which we can share that bounty with others. Give thanks also for those who harvest other things – ideas through scientific research; enthusiasm in learning through teachers; and much more.
For the Church … give thanks to God for those who harvest the skills and calling of God’s people – for those involved in discerning vocations, and identifying each Christian’s unique calling.
For our Community… pray for the farmers and those who work in the fields around us, that they may know how best to prepare the ground and herds for the coming winter.
For those who suffer in body, mind or spirit: Brenda, Pauline, John, Maurice, Janet, David, Sarah.
….for the recently departed:
Stella Dollin, Jacqueline Jones, Joan Williams,
Janice Ward, Norman Griffiths, Barbara Phillips, Rosemary Myers.
+ May they rest in peace and rise in glory
