Prayer Intentions: Pentecost

For a new Pentecost: that God will pour out the Spirit in a new and abundant way to renew humanity and all of creation

For a Spirit of unity: that God will destroy all the divisions that separate the human family and restore our ability to work together against disease, famine, and injustice

For a Spirit of love: that we may fulfil Christ’s command to love one another by placing our time, energy, and gifts at the service of others and helping them to carry their daily burdens

For a Spirit of truth: that we may open our minds and hearts to all the ways that truth is manifest particularly in the scriptures, tradition, the wisdom of those who have gone before us, and in the humanities and the sciences

For a Spirit of hope: that all who are overwhelmed by life may find new reasons to live this day and be gifted with a vision of all that could be tomorrow

For the Spirit of healing: that God will touch all who are ill, particularly those with Covid-19, strengthen their minds, bodies, and spirits, and restore them to wholeness

For all who have died: we remember especially Jim Magee and Margaret Martin who have died recently

And for Rev Jim Byers, Elizabeth Kean and James and Betty McAlpine whose anniversaries are at this time:-
