We remember in our prayers…
all those whose names lie at the foot of the cross in the intercession corner in our church. Those who are sick, those who mourn, those who can no longer live independent lives,
all who are troubled in body, mind or spirit.
Holy Father God…
We are starting a new year Lord, as we proceed through this year and as things improve and we begin to return to normal, let us never forget where we have been and the sacrifices made. Let us always remember the sense of community that was fostered during the last few years and help us to continue to work together for the happiness of
all in our community.
Help us to remember that whilst many of us may be able to pick up where we left off, others won’t be in a position to do this. Show us what we can do to help those who are destitute, those who are unemployed those whose businesses have been destroyed.
Those without hope.
Finally we give thanks for all those scientists and research workers who have worked so hard to get a vaccine against Covid 19.
Help us to ensure that those in authority are willing and able to share this knowledge and the production of the vaccines with countries
that do not have our advantages.
