ST MATTHEW AND ST LUKE'S PRAYER DIARY - AUGUST

Heavenly Father we know that you are always with us and hear us when we pray to you.  During this month of August, we think of all those who are able to enjoy the summer break either by taking a holiday whether it be abroad or this country.  We ask that they return refreshed and renewed, and for those who are unable to enjoy the pleasure of a holiday we ask that they are able to enjoy some time of refreshment.

Heavenly Father be with all those young people who will be waiting for their exam results whether they be GSCE’s or A levels, and their families as this can be a very stressful time as many futures will depend on whether they achieve the grades needed to further their careers.

Heavenly Father, be with us all and all those who we may know who need our prayers for many reasons, illness, loneliness, bereavement.  Be with them Lord and surround them with your love and give them courage to face whatever is ahead of them.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
