Saturday Prayer Requests (St. Gregory of St. Nyssa)

O God, by your Holy Spirit you give to some the word of wisdom, to others the world of knowledge, and to others the word of faith: We praise your Name for the gifts of grace manifested in your servant St. Gregory, and we pray that your Church may never be destitute of such gifts; through Jesus Christ our
Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, 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 Mbhashe – (Southern Africa) The Rt Revd Elliot Williams; Meath & Kildare – (Ireland) The Ven Leslie Stevenson

We pray for our friends in Christ in the Batak Christian Protestant Church; Church of Denmark

We also pray for St. Nicholas, Holy Trinity and Santa Maria in Midland, TX. 

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  MaldivesMali and for an increase in the mission of the Church there. 

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

Mae (cold, possible walking pneumonia, also has diabetes, high blood pressure and fibromyalgia)

Let the faithful departed rest in peace, bring a knowledge and assurance of your love to those who mourn 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.

Grant, Lord God, to all who have been baptized into the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ, that, as we have put away the old life of sin, so we may be renewed in the spirit of our minds, and live in righteousness and true holiness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. (Book of Common Prayer 1979)
