  • Pope Francis sent his representative to Davos last week to ask the political and business leaders of the world to think more of the common good, and to beware of competitive vying for power and wealth.   As our country prepares to leave the European Union, we pray that  our leaders  may realise that for us to prosper – so do our neighbours and trading partners.
  • Lord, hear us.
  • We pray that the leaders of the church and of all the faith communities may work more effectively to influence public opinion.
    Lord Hear us
  • We pray that we may be doers of the word – as well as listeners and speakers of the word.
