Bidding Prayers or Sunday 30th April

Heavenly Father, we are your sheep, and you are our shepherd. We can never feel lost with you guiding us. Hear our prayers we bring before you.

“God’s style is never distant, detached, or indifferent. On the contrary, it is a style of proximity, compassion, and tenderness.” Help us to be disciples of compassion. 

We pray for the 459 people that have been killed and the thousands wounded since the fighting broke out in Sudan on 15 April and all those trying to evacuate the country.

As Ukraine calls for more weapons and ammunition, we pray for resolution and an end to the war.

As extreme weather is gripping parts of the world, amid growing fears this summer could see more record-breaking heat, we pray the impact of climate change continues to be high on the agenda in governments and communities.

We pray to be continually renewed this Eastertide, celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, let us deepen our prayer life.

We pray for a moment for our own personal petitions…

Lord Jesus, sometimes we can all feel a little lost. Thank you for always signposting us to journey through life in the correct direction. Amen
