Prayers for the month – August

As we enter into the holiday period we give thanks for the time to spend with family and friends and the time to recuperate from the busyness of everyday life. Help us to use this time in ways which are pleasing to you Lord and not waste it. We pray for all those travelling thinking especially of those who are flying and we also pray for the Airport chaplains who are there for  people of all faiths, and people with no faith at all offering comfort, emotional support and, for those who need it, access to local charities and support groups. We think of all those members of our congregation who are currently on the Parish holiday that they may enjoy fun and fellowship with friends old and new. We also pray for those young people who are heading off to Venture camps this summer especially those who are experiencing it for the first time that they may enjoy the experience and explore their faith with others. We give thanks for all the leaders who give up their time to make this experience possible.

In our Deanery we continue to pray for our Area Dean Rev David Kesterton and all the other deanery officers. We also pray for our Archdeacon Rev Dave Middlebrook and his wife Anne- we give thanks for his enthusiasm in getting to know the people and parishes in the area by walking to visit them during the month and look forward to meeting him in the future.

In our local area we pray for all shops and local businesses that they may serve the local community and provide work for local people. We also pray that our new Prime Minister Boris Johnson can unite MP’s and lead our country with wisdom and compassion so that people do not suffer.

At the end of the month we will be thinking of all those students waiting for exam results - Jesus, Keep reminding them of the bigger picture over the next few weeks. Keep them in your hands when all other hands disappear, for I am convinced that neither entry requirements nor exam results, neither anticipation nor doubts, neither success nor failure, nor any expectations, neither last minute fears nor anxieties, nor anything else in life, will be able to separate them from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen
