Three in one and one in three God, we come before You on this Trinity Sunday to offer You Father, Son and Holy Spirit our praise and thanks. We bring to You what is on our minds in a spirit of truth and love as we live in Your love. We offer this prayer in the name of our saviour Jesus Christ.
Christ our Saviour who came in physical form to redeem us and set us free. Holy Spirit who came to to guide and support us. Holy Father who watches over us. You are the one God, eternal Trinity. Be with Your people whom You formed in Your image.
Loving God, You are the creator who gave us stewardship over this planet. Forgive us that we treat everything as our own, instead of in care for You.
We praise You for Your creation. By Your grace You gave us everything we need for life and health. Grant that the resources of the Earth may not be hoarded by the selfish nor squandered by the foolish, so that all can share in Your gifts.
We pray for Your church everywhere. For churches that are thriving and those which may have lost a sense of direction, for those that are fading and those that must meet discretely or in hiding.
We give thanks for the churches of our parish, their leaders and the lay officers in their various roles. We remember that the churches are the people, not the buildings in which we meet.
We thank You for the gift of rebirth. Like Nicodemus, we were reborn into Your church. Father free our hearts to welcome strangers and share our faith, bringing others to rebirth. Open our minds to know Your truth and understand your will.
Lord and Father we pray for peace. Humanity has broken Your world. Show us how to re-create it as You intended it to be. We do not ask for peace without effort, but for Your guidance how to achieve a peace for all that will not be taken for granted.
Guide those in positions of leadership whether local, national or global. Heads of state and politicians, members of government and leaders of faiths. May Your will guide their decisions and give them a vision of compassion, peace and justice.
We pray for those whose life is saddened by the death of a loved one, be with them in their grief.
Father before whom all burdens can be laid, we lay before You our burdens and we remember those with a greater burden than ourselves who are sick or sad, injured or lonely and those who care for them. We pray that they feel Your comfort and strength and know that they are safe and loved by You.
Lord, lead us into the coming week. If we feel alone, remind us that you are always close. Keep us from making mistakes and help us not to disappoint you. When we face hard decisions or difficult work, when we enjoy ourselves and have fun with others let us remember that you share these times with us.
Merciful Father, accept this prayer for the sake of Your son our saviour Jesus Christ.
