#stayconnected: Intercessions shared during Evening Prayer on 13 June

These are the intercessions we prayed during last week’s Zoom Evening Prayer:

Almighty and everlasting God, we ask you blessing on all those, whoever and wherever they may be, fighting to contain and conquer Covid-19. We ask you to give wisdom and a sense of responsibility to all those in authority, and to enable them to fully harness the skills of all medical and scientific staff involved.

Lord, in your mercy

Hear our prayer


Father, we thank you for bringing us together and we ask you blessing on our Bishops, Robert and David, Archdeacon Leslie and our Area Dean, John Newsome, and sister churches in the Diocese of Europe, but also on churches here in Hamburg that like the nearby ‘Michel’ are facing serious losses due to falls in visitor numbers.

Lord, in your mercy

Hear our prayer


Father, we pray that the struggle against this plague, like the one against cholera in Hamburg, may eventually bring lasting benefits for the existences and the health of your peoples around the globe, in the Eastern and Western, Southern and Northern hemispheres alike. Help those fighting to eliminate hunger that in the words of one reading this week, ‘the valleys may be so thick with corn that they laugh and sing’. Be with all those in the arts, hospitality and travel sector whose livelihoods are under such pressure.

Lord, in your mercy

Hear our prayer


Father, we remember all those confined in institutions, in prisons and hospitals and care homes. Keep alive in them a spirit pg hope that relief will come when it is safe.

Lord, in your mercy

Hear our prayer


Father, we thank you for the gifts of sight and hearing and movement, we ask you to be with all those who, for age or other reasons, are contending with problems in those areas. We thank you for the variety of quite recent inventions to alleviate the problems, and also for all the equipment that
can bring worship, music and drama and news right into our homes.

Lord, in your mercy

Hear our prayer


Father, we thank you for bringing us together this evening and we give thanks for Fr Pete and all those making our Friday and Sunday gatherings possible. Yesterday was the feast of St Barnabas, known as the son of encouragement, so help us all to spread a gospel of love, joy, peace, patience
and humility.

Lord, in your mercy

Hear our prayer

Then participants were invited to share their own prayers if they wished to do so.
