Tuesday Prayer Requests (Tuesday of Holy Week)

O God, by the passion of your blessed Son you made an instrument of shameful death to be for us the means of life: Grant us so to glory in the cross of Christ, that we may gladly suffer shame and loss for the sake of your Son our Savior 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: Jerusalem – (Jerusalem & Middle East) The Rt Revd Suheil Dawani; Moosonee – (Ontario, Canada) The Rt Revd Thomas Corston; Moray, Ross & Caithness – (Scotland) The Rt Revd Mark Strange

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

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 Nauru; Nepal and the Netherlands

Anna & Thurrell (marital difficulties); Vanessa (workplace troubles); Abib (needs a job); Gerrie (needs a car); Aliyah (14, being bullied); Tek (business matter needs prayer)

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

Christa (eye injury, starting mission work, spiritual protection); Alexis (cancer is back); Linda (brain cancer), pray for husband Joe; Bishop Warren (heart problem); Elizabeth (high blood pressure); AJ (m, breathing difficulties); Stan (recovering from a stroke); Elizabeth (hand surgery)

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.

Bill (cancer not as severe as first thought); Lorraine (cancer free); Suda (exam results seem good)

Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but  first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified: Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way  of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and  peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Book of Common Prayer 1979)
