Intercessions for Work

Lord, once again, with a heavy heart, I thank you for giving strength to our emergency services, to the police and ambulance crews, to the NHS doctors and nurses, to everyone who attended to those hurt in Monday’s atrocity. Their professionalism, skills and ability to work to help others is truly amazing. Amen

Pause for thought

Sunday’s gospel (John 14:15-21) In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me and I in you.

Prayer for the Day

From Cardinal Vincent Nichols
May God grant strength and enduring faith to all who are bereaved, injured and traumatised. May God welcome into His merciful presence all who have died. May God turn the hearts of all who commit evil to a true understanding of His desire and intention for humanity. Amen

A Prayer Walk – Friday 26th May from 6.30pm from St Mary’s South Woodford, to Christ Church, to our St Mary’s, ending at St Gabriel’s.
