Today, from our church family, we pray for Sue and Rosie Davidson.
Collect for the Fifth Sunday in Lent
“Most merciful God,
who by the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ
delivered and saved the world:
grant that by faith in him who suffered on the cross
we may triumph in the power of his victory;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen”
Messy Church in the Morning are meeting today so we’ll be greeted by the beautiful smell of toast and coffee. Thank you, Father, for all who come to share this as a church family. We pray that everything we offer to you today will be worthy of your acceptance as we praise and worship you.
It is our Annual Church Meeting today, Lord, so we pray for your special guidance as we seek to find a new warden, new members of the PCC and new Deanery Synod Representatives. We pray that there will be people in our church family willing to volunteer for these important positions. We pray for Simon as he chairs the meeting and for everything that will be discussed this day. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
