For the grace to use money wisely and generously, and to avoid selfishness.            Lord, hear us

That our governments may take more account of the needs of the poorest and the most vulnerable, and allocate resources for their care.  That the problems caused by climate change may be faced up to and the necessary changes in policy be found and implemented             Lord, hear us

For peace in the Middle East and throughout the world, and for  the well being of our country in this time of political confusion and incoherence.              Lord, hear us

For all who work in Mission lands, and those for whom they work. And for the members of the Apostleship of the Sea and the sailors whom they serve.      Lord, hear us
