Thank you for meeting us on this day to worship and praise you.
We pray for families and those affected by recent natural disasters [insert relevant references from current news].
We pray for the leaders of government relief agencies that will be involved in aiding the communities.
We pray also for the weak and vulnerable in our own communities, especially those experiencing violence on the street, domestic violence in the home, sickness and mental illness.
We pray for our church, our Ministers and Leaders, and those who do outreach in the communities. Strengthen and inspire them in their work.
This prayer, a group effort, was written during a workshop on Intercessory Prayer held at St Andrew’s United Reformed Church, Brockley, London.
