Let us Pray
Loving God, Lord of all life
Hear our prayers this day.
You sent your Son Jesus to sow seeds,
Seeds of hope,
Seeds of love,
Seeds of grace,
Seeds of justice,
Seeds of forgiveness.
May these seeds grow in the soil that is our faith in you O God.
You are the God of all creation.
This wonderful, diverse, sometimes challenging
World is in your caring hands.
Lord Jesus Christ you came to show us the way
You came to proclaim the good news
You came to guide and nurture us
You came to save us from ourselves.
May the seeds that you have planted within us through your ministry
Grow and prosper and bear fruit.
May that fruit be shared so that others may be nourished
And experience the freedom and joy that you bring into
The lives of all your children.
Loving God forgive when we allow your seed
To wither and die.
Due to our lack of faith,
Our inaction in the face of injustice,
Our inability to love others
Our refusal to forgive those who we perceive to have hurt us.
Loving God may your seeds bear fruit around the world.
Bless and strengthen all in need at this time.
Comfort all in their distress,
Due to illness and bereavement.
In the uncertainty of all that we face at this time
May your light continue to shine,
Leading us from danger to safety,
From despair to hope,
From hate to love,
From division to unity.
In a time of silence Father we offer our prayers
And name those we wish to remember before you now
To you O God the sower of the seeds
We offer our sacrifice of praise and prayer.
Hear us now as a family we pray:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,
now and for ever.
