FOR PEACE IN THE WORLD
Almighty Father, whose will is to restore all things
in your beloved Son, the King of all:
govern the hearts and minds of those in authority,
and bring the families of the nations,
divided and torn apart by the ravages of sin,
to be subject to his just and gentle rule;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
(COLLECT FOR 3rd SUNDAY BEFORE ADVENT)
FOR THOSE IN ANY NEED
Almighty and everlasting God, the comfort of the sad,
the strength of those who suffer:
hear the prayers of your children
who cry out of any tribulation;
And to everyone who is distressed
grant mercy, grant relief, grant healing and wholeness;
in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
FOR THE CHURCH
Almighty God and heavenly Father,
open our eyes to see you at work in our world:
grant us wisdom in using our gifts,
grace to enliven our Churches,
and courage to transform our communities.
By your Holy Spirit, equip us
for the challenge ahead,
excite us to follow your vision
and empower us in witness and service.
To you be the glory through Jesus our Saviour
and mighty Redeemer. Amen.
