Prayers for this week
Prayer is an important part of our Christian lives prayers posted here allow us at St John’s to pray with you and for you. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a prayer request either for yourselves or others. A photo of your prayer is good because it makes the prayer personal.
COLLECT Gracious Father, revive your Church in our day, and make her holy, strong and faithful, for your glory’s sake in Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen
WE PRAY FOR YOUR HEALING LOVE be at work in each one of these we name, according to their need: Barbara McLaren, Mary Lake, Muriel Coop and Bernard Shaw, Winifred Lord (Eric Lord's sister), Stephen and Jean Hannam, Doreen Clark, Douglas Hartley, , Keith Redfearn, Helen Hearson, Glynice Lord, David Williams, Jane, Wendy Rachael and Phillipa, Anne and John Milnes, and those in local residential provision. (Michael Storey has told me I have been in touch with both "Homes" by phone. calls. Folks at Cygnet Lodge all fit and well and glad of our prayers. Rastrick Hall and Grange: Coping, no obvious covid-19. Only 2 deaths since last visit by Jane and me, both from natural causes. As with Cygnet Lodge, they are pleased to know that we are praying for them).
WE PRAY FOR the parishes of St John and St Matthew, for all who live and work in Rastrick, and those who travel through. This week we particularly ask your blessing for the residents of Reins Road, Holly Bank Road, Holly Bank Park, the staff and the children from our schools now on holiday and the Care Homes in Rastrick.
WE PRAY FOR the recently departed and for all who mourn that they will know your love through those who grieve with them.
