Church of England Diocese of Birmingham St. Matthew with St. Chad, Smethwick

Lord, we pray:

We have a team of ministers who pray for all those who ask for our prayers. We always pray privately but are also willing to share prayers on this website for those who want this.  

We pray for all those in any kind of need, distress or adversity. Lord, bring to all in need: your mercy and the help they need.

We pray for all those who are sick: Lord, wrap those who are sick with your loving compassion.

We remember today that we are all made of dust and that to dust we shall all return: Lord, draw close to all who are dying, help all of us to prepare for that day and hour. 

We call to mind everyone who is bereaved and pray for all who mourn: Lord wrap your loving arms around the family and friends of all who have died. May they feel your presence and find your peace. 

We call to mind our own needs: Lord, we know that you know what we truly need: give to us what is best for us. Lord in your mercy hear all of our prayers and petitions.

We call to mind all the things we are thankful for: Lord, we give you thanks and praise for all the things we are thankful for. Lord in your mercy hear all of our prayers and petitions.
