Today from our church family we pray for David Gregory
Collect for 2nd Sunday of Easter:
“Almighty Father, you have given your only Son to die for our sins and to rise again for our justification: grant us so to put away the leaven of malice and
wickedness that we may always serve you in pureness of living and truth; through the merits of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.”
As we come together to worship at St Martin’s today, we pray for those elected at our Annual Church Meeting at the beginning of the month. Lord, we ask for your blessing, guidance and support for our wardens, their deputies, the members of the PCC and Deanery Synod Representatives, and especially for those new to these posts. We give thanks for those prepared to serve St Martin’s in these roles. We also pray for our Ministry Team and for guidance for the calling out process to appoint new members later this year. Finally we pray for Simon and Phill our ministers, for Penny our reader and for Margaret as she comes towards the end of her training for reader. Inspire them Lord, as they move forward on their personal spiritual journeys and their mission at St Martins.
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer
