Saturday Prayer Requests (St. Gregory the Illuminator)

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 Gregory the Illuminator, 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 Montana – (VI, The Episcopal Church) The Rt Revd Charles Franklin Brookhart; Montreal – (Canada, Canada) The Rt Revd Barry Bryan Clarke

We pray for our friends in Christ in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland; Evangelical Lutheran Church of Latvia

Nadia and family (Egyptian converts to Christianity jailed for their faith)

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 Mozambique; Namibia and for an increase in the mission of the Church there. 

Peace between two sisters who haven’t spoken in years

Sheela’s sister (hard, heavy drug use)

Susie (may have an offer on her home)

Lange (may be losing her job due to doctor’s financial troubles)

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

Patricia Walker (upcoming triple bypass)

Jasinta (fever, cough, aches)

Rexxine (death immanent)

Treva K. (hip replacement)

Betty (blood sugar and medication issues)

Tomas (in hospice due to war injuries, God’s peace and blessings for him)

Connie (dementia), husband Tommy, son Matthew

Julio (stomach cancer), wife is very upset

Edwina (recovering from ankle injury)

Desiree (losing sight in one eye, only 19)

Patricia (has had a second heart attack)

Marylynn (poor leg circulation)

Let the faithful departed rest in peace, especially Susie; bring a knowledge and assurance of your love to those who mourn, especially Susie’s family 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, by our baptism into the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ, you turn us from the old life of sin: Grant that we, being reborn to new life in him, may live in righteousness and holiness all our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. (Book of Common Prayer 1979)
