Intercessions

For a deeper awareness, within ourselves, of the need to pray –

for others,  to praise God, to thank God, and to ask for forgiveness for ourselves and others.   Lord, hear us

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 Syria, the Yemen,  and throughout the world, and for  the well being of our own country.   We pray also that the countries of the world may use the United Nations better as a forum in which to work together rather than go to war.            Lord, hear us
