Let us pray
Lord, those who seek you
find you in the people they meet each day,
with their strengths and weaknesses, joys and hardships.
Let us learn from St Margaret
to treat each other with kindness and generosity.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
A Reading from St Paul to the Corinthians (1: Cor 13: 4)
Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous;
love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offence, and is not resentful.
we pray that we will be generous with our families. Lord, hear us we pray that we will learn to accept responsibility
We pray that we will value our prayers.
We pray that we will be good to those in need.
We pray for our country and the happiness of all our people.
Our Father . . . . . . . . . . .
May the Lord bless us, and keep us from all harm and lead us to eternal life. Amen
