ST MATTHEW AND ST LUKE'S PRAYERS FOR MARCH

 

Words taken from a hymn by Adam Daubney ©Thankyou Music 2000

Lord, send us to the lost, where brokenness abounds, where we can show the Father’s heart.

Heavenly Father, in this time of Lent, help us to reach out to those in our community who feel so lost and lonely, that everyone has forgotten them and no-one cares and have had to face the restrictions on our movements during these lockdowns alone with no-one to bubble with. 

Where we can feed the poor, where we can warm the cold, and comfort those who weep and mourn.

Lord we this of fall those in dire need throughout Darlington who without the help of the Food Banks and other agencies like AgeUK who have delivered hot meals to the elderly and lonely would have suffered so much more than those of us who have had family and friends to help us by such a simple wave or telephone call.

We raise before you Lord, all those who have lost loved ones or loved ones are suffering from terminal illnesses during this pandemic and have been unable to visit them or to feel the love and compassion that friends and families can give them at these times.  We can only ask that you surround them with your love at these darkest of times.

Jesus, with Your compassion send us to all the earth.

With mercy, with justice, Lord, send us to the lost;

With lives that resound with the message of the Cross.

 

Lord, you called us all to follow You and to do what we could for those unable to find peace within themselves.  Help us all to love our neighbour whoever they might be in these times and do what we can however small that thing might be.

 

Whatever we do for the least, wherever we are called to go, we will serve You faithfully.  With gifts unseen and works untold, and blessings sown that no-one knows, send us out to all the earth, Jesus.

 

With mercy, with justice, Lord send us to the lost;

With lives that resound with the message of the Cross.                                                  Amen.
