Thursday Prayer Requests (St. Perpetua and Her Companions)

Almighty God, who gave your servant Perpetua and her Companions boldness to confess the Name of our Savior Jesus Christ before the rulers of this world, and courage to die for this faith: Grant that we may always be ready to give a reason for the hope that is in us, and to suffer gladly for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever. (Book of Common Prayer 1979)

Let us pray to the Lord, who is slow to anger and rich in mercy.

During this Lenten time of prayer, fasting and self-examination, let us pray that the Church may be strengthened for its mission to those who need the Gospel.

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for Mbamili – (Niger, Nigeria) The Rt Revd Henry Okeke; Mbeere – (Kenya) The Rt Revd Moses Nthuka

We pray for our friends in Christ in the Andhra Evangelical Lutheran Church (Lutheran World Federation); Arcot Lutheran Church

We also pray for St. Paul’s Cathedral, Boston, MA. 

Holy God, the effects of sin are all around us. Let your healing grace and mercy reach out to all those in need. Restore everything that is broken in our lives to wholeness.

We pray for the people of  Malawi; Malaysia and for an increase in the mission of the Church there. 

Joanne Clark (having a difficult time)

Let those who are sick, suffering or in any need know of your healing power in their difficulty.

Theresa R.’s grandson (hernia)

Let the faithful departed, especially the grandmother and two grandchildren who died in Connecticut rest in peace, bring a knowledge and assurance of your love to those who mourn, especially their family members, and keep all of us who pray in everlasting life.

We also praise you for the blessings in our lives, that we and the whole Church may eagerly look forward to rejoicing at Resurrection Day.

Almighty God, whose beloved Son willingly endured the agony and shame of the cross for our redemption: Give us courage to take up our cross and follow him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. (Book of Common Prayer 1979)
