“And He who searches our hearts, knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God”

Rom 8:27

Lord God, Heavenly Father, whose…

  • goodness to us never fails
  • Spirit is with us now, helping us, especially in times of trial

Thankyou, God, for…

  • the gift of your Holy Spirit dwelling within each one of us, teaching and empowering us
  • your grace which is sufficient for us, showing us how your power is made perfect in our weakness
  • healing, renewing and restoring us as individuals, as a church family and as a nation

We ask, Lord, for…

  • comfort for all who have lost loved ones (name those known)
  • continued help for those still suffering from Covid-19 and other health conditions made worse by the pandemic (name those known)
  • your Spirit to inform peacemakers across the world but especially in Afghanistan
  • your patience with us, as we fail to learn the lessons you have taught us during this pandemic
  • your Spirit to direct us and enable us in simple ways to be witnesses to your grace

Remembering, always, that…

  • you and you alone, Lord, are the answer to all our problems
  • through your Spirit we can be your instruments for good, no matter what the circumstances

In Jesus’ name we pray,

Amen
