Before stepping out…

O Lord, open our lips
and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Send your Holy Spirit upon us,
and clothe us with power from on high. Alleluia.

Blessed are you, creator God,
to you be praise and glory for ever.
As your Spirit moved over the face of the waters
bringing light and life to your creation,
pour out your Spirit on us at this time
that we may walk as children of light
and by your grace reveal your presence.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Blessed be God for ever.

Detour at Hollow Lane to Mount Pleasant Care Home

Intercession 1

Let us pray to God our creator, who has given us the earth’s goodness for our delight, and entrusted it to our care and tenderness.

For all who live in captivity to debt, whose lives are cramped by fear from which there is no turning except through abundant harvest; Lord, we pray: may those who sow in tears
reap with shouts of joy.

For all who depend on the earth for their daily food and fuel, whose forests are destroyed for the profit of a few; Lord, we pray: may those who sow in tears
reap with shouts of joy.

Save us from all that holds us captive, restore our vision, that our mouth may be filled with laughter and our tongue with songs of joy.
Amen.

Intercession 2

Let us pray to God our creator, who has given us the earth’s goodness for our delight, and entrusted it to our care and tenderness.

For those who labour in poverty, are oppressed by unjust laws, are prevented from speaking the truth, and long for a harvest of justice; Lord, we pray: may those who sow in tears
reap with shouts of joy.

For all who are captive to greed and waste and boredom, whose harvest joy is choked with things they do not need; Lord, we pray: may those who sow in tears
reap with shouts of joy.

Save us from all that holds us captive, restore our vision, that our mouth may be filled with laughter and our tongue with songs of joy.
Amen.

Before we go home…

Almighty God,
your ascended Son has sent us into the world
to preach the good news of your kingdom:
inspire us with your Spirit
and fill our hearts with the fire of your love,
that all who hear your Word
may be drawn to you,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.                           The Prayer for Thy Kingdom Come

Being made one by the power of the Spirit,
let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has taught us
Our Father, who art in heaven …

May the Spirit kindle in us the fire of God’s love.
Amen.

Let us bless the Lord. Alleluia, alleluia.
Thanks be to God. Alleluia, alleluia.
