Prayers of the Faithful
Jesus our Lord came across the water to his disciples.  He comes to us in our need and in our struggles.  
We speak to him now. We praise Jesus who watches over us when life is hard.  May our trust in him grow stronger and give us confidence.  Lord, hear us.
We pray for the leaders in our church.  May the Lord sustain their faith and give them courage.  Lord, hear us.
We pray for all who are struggling with storms and tribulations in life.  May we support one another and overcome all fear.
Lord, hear us.
God’s voice speaks of peace.  We pray that justice and peace will come wherever people are torn apart by fear and hatred.  Lord, hear us.
We pray for those who have died.  After the storms and    struggles of life, may they experience the calm of God’s peace. Lord, hear us.
Priest:  We pray to you, O Lord, because we trust you.  We trust in your power and presence in our lives.  And we praise your name, you who live for ever and ever.  Amen.
