MONTHLY PRAYERS

 

 

ST MATTHEW AND ST LUKE'S PRAYERS FOR NOVEMBER -  THE MONTH FOR REMEMBERING

 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We shall remember them.

 

Heavenly Father we remember all those who have given their lives over the years in the many conflicts that mankind has fought – First and Second World Wars, Korean War, Gulf War, Falklands War, and the War in Afghanistan to mention just a few.  The men and women who left families and friends behind as they gave their lives in order that we might live in freedom,

 

We give thanks for organisations that look after the welfare of veterans and serving men and women in our Armed Forces of today: -

The Royal British Legion

SSAAFA

Help the Heroes

The Royal Hospital – Chelsea

And many other local organisations

 

Heavenly Father we also remember all those who have lost their lives fighting diseases of many kinds – cancer, Covid-19, just two of the most common conditions. 

Be with their friends and relations as they come to terms with their losses, many unable to attend funerals or even visit their loved ones. 

We give thanks for all those volunteers and paid counsellors who give their time to help those in need of specialist help at these times.

Amen
