Sunday 25th February 2018

Inspired by Abraham’s trust and faith we bring our needs to our loving Father:

• We pray for the Pope and ask that through his leadership the Church will shine ever more brightly with Christ’s presence.

• As we prepare to celebrate St David later in the week, we pray especially for all the people of Wales. May they, and all peoples, follow in St David’s footsteps and grow in the understanding and practice of the faith.

• We pray for the people of Syria as they suffer further catastrophic bombing. We ask that families receive the practical help and support that they need and that decision makers are guided by a sense of urgency and wisdom.

• In the wake of the Oxfam scandal we pray for charities around the world. We ask that they continue to receive support and that we do not allow the behaviour of the few to blind us to the beneficial work of the many.

• As we celebrate Women’s World Day of Prayer this week we reflect on the beauty of the world around us. May we all take seriously our responsibilities as stewards and our actions make a difference to the care of our common home.

• Jesus took his friends up a high mountain where they could be alone by themselves. We ask that during this Lent we too are able to take more time to be alone with Jesus in prayer, open to receiving the grace which will transform our lives.

Loving Father, we ask you to grant our prayers through Jesus Christ, your Beloved Son. Amen.
