7th Sunday of Easter
Anglican Communion Sunday
Collect for the day: 🙏
Jesus prayed that we might be one:
help us to transcend our differences
and find our unity in Jesus Christ our Lord;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
During a Vacancy in a Diocese/ Pastoral Charge: 🙏
God our Father the giver of every good gift graciously regard the needs of your Church and guide with your heavenly wisdom the minds of those responsible for choosing a bishop for this Diocese: send us a faithful pastor to feed Your flock and lead us into the way of holiness; through Jesus our Lord. AMEN.
Prayers for use during the Coronavirus Outbreak:🙏
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of Your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in Your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us
from Your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Lord Jesus Christ,
You taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for You.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and Your love,
for Your name’s sake.
PRAYER FOR AFRICA:🙏
God bless Africa
Protect our children
Transform our leaders,
Heal our Communities,
Restore our dignity and
Grant us peace,
For Jesus Christ’s sake.
Psalm 68:1-10, 32-35
