Sunday 20th May 2018


Jesus did not leave his friends alone, but sent his Spirit to be with us always. As we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost we pray with confidence:

• For the leaders of the Church: that they continue to speak the truth confidently and act with justice and compassion, so that the world can see the depth of God’s love for all.

• We pray for the Church all over the world: that we might celebrate with joy the wonderful diversity of nationalities and cultures that make up the Body of Christ.

• For all those working for peace: that they are guided by the Spirit to listen carefully and act wisely.

• For all those who are being confirmed: may the gifts of the Holy Spirit bring them great blessings, enabling them to live even more fully in the light of God’s love.

• We pray for all students who are taking exams: that they remain calm and focused so they are able to settle to good revision and their hard work bears fruit.

We ask you, loving Father, to hear and grant our prayers. Fill us with your Holy Spirit so that our lives bear witness to the truth of Jesus. Amen.
