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 email@example.com 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 Almighty God, send down upon your Church the riches of your Spirit, and kindle in all who minister the gospel your countless gifts of grace; through 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. (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 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 The Hoods, Delph Place, Star Terrace, The Space @ Field Lane, the staff and the children at our schools 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.
