GENERAL INTERCESSIONS

 

BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST

 

18TH JUNE 2017

 

 

 

Priest:   We are gathered as the Christian community desiring to receive Communion, the Body and Blood of Christ.  We draw strength from God now as we bring all our prayers.

 

 

 

 

 

Reader:  This week we are saddened by the tragedy of the fire in the tower block in London.  We pray for all those who have lost their lives.  We pray also for those looking for their loved ones or grieving those who have died.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

We pray for our Parish Community: may we see the Eucharist as the summit of our Christian life – the greatest prayer we can offer.

 

LORD, HEAR US…

 

 

 

For ourselves: may we continue to draw strength from the Communion we receive – the source of our Christian life.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

We pray for the children who in these weeks have been receiving the Sacrament of Eucharist for the first time: may it be for them and their families a time of closeness to Jesus Christ.

 

LORD, HEAR US …

 

 

 

On this Feast when we think of Christ as ‘Food for Life’, we pray for all those in our world who have no food and no drink to sustain them: may they receive the much-needed aid and support they desire.

 

LORD, HEAR US…

 

 

 

We pray for the repose of the souls of Joe Morland, Alexander McQuarrie, Paul Johnstone and Suzanne Murphy who have died: may they receive the reward of their labours in Heaven …. And we pray in silence for our own needs … (Pause) …

 

LORD, HEAR US…

 

 

 

 

 

Priest:  Lord God, we draw comfort from your presence here in this gathering.  May we feel your protection with us always.  We ask this through Christ our Lord
