Intercessions for Trinity Sunday

Let us pray for the Church and the world:

God, we give thanks that you understand our relationships because you are one God in three persons, united in love and perfect understanding. Forgive our failures to love and understand, and help us to learn to be more like you.

Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.

Grant, Almighty God, that all who confess your name may be united in your truth, live together in your love and reveal your glory in the world. Help us always to value these things and live by them.

Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.

Guide the people of this land, and of all the nations, in the ways of justice and peace. Bless all with the responsibilities of government. Heal divisions, that we may honour one another and serve the common good.

Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.

Teach us to respect the earth as your creation, that we may use its resources wisely to your glory and for the good of all. Let those who holiday find good rest, and those who work the land produce sustainable resources.

Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.

Bless all whose lives are closely linked with ours, and grant that we may serve Christ in them, and love one another as he loves us. Let us be agents of your mission, serving in different ways for the glory of our Lord.

Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.

Comfort and heal all who suffer in body, mind or spirit; we remember especially . . . Give them courage and hope in their troubles, and bring them the joy of your salvation.

Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.

Hear us as we remember those who have died in the peace of Christ (. . . . ), Grant us with them a share in your eternal kingdom.

Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.

Merciful Father, accept these prayers for the sake of your Son,
our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen
