Bulletin 21 7th Sun Easter May 28th

For the church throughout the world, and here in our own parish:
That we may work at deepening our faith and living up to it
For the sake of the common good.
Lord, hear us

For the country: that as we prepare for the General Election, each and all of us may consider well how we vote, and do so for the wellbeing of the whole country.
Lord, hear us

For Ariella Elizabeth Campbell who was baptized
and for Gregory and Anna Parkins who married last weekend.
Lord, hear us.

We pray for peace, and for the support for all victims of violence and war.
We also pray that the leaders of the nations will realise that we need to build up a culture in which the rights, the racial origins, and the faiths of every human being are respected; that people everywhere may be protected from the sale and use of arms as much as the sale and use of drugs.
Lord, hear us

We pray for respect for human life – at its beginning, throughout life, and in old age.
Lord, hear us.
