Bidding Prayers for Sunday 14th January

Heavenly Father, we give thanks for all you bring to our lives. Speak to us. We are listening. You have our hearts, you share our thoughts, please hear our prayers we bring before you.

We pray for  Special people, who walk beside us, who live and proclaim the Gospel, who live out Christian virtues and inspire us daily. Help us to be everyday saints.

We pray for all those afflicted by war. We pray the suffering of people and destruction of homes and communities will end, and peace will prevail.

As temperatures continue to plummet, bringing the risk of wintry hazards, we pray for those that are vulnerable and isolated. May they receive the help and support they need.

We pray for all those affected by the Post Office scandal. We pray that victims will be exonerated, compensated, and move forward to lead happier, stress-free lives.

We pray for those that are feeling worried and suffering with feelings of low self-worth. May friends and family help lift them from the shadows and lead them to the light.

We pray for a moment for our own personal petitions…

Loving Lord, please guide us throughout this year. Please help us to help others and give us peace of mind as we journey through 2024. Amen.
