‘Let anyone who is thirsty come to me,’ says the Lord; ‘and let the one who believes in me drink. For out of your heart shall flow rivers of living water.’ John 7.38
at the feast of Pentecost
you sent your Holy Spirit to the disciples,
filling them with joy and boldness to preach the gospel:
empower us with that same Spirit
to witness to your redeeming love
and draw all people to you;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Grant, O Lord,
that the course of this world
may be so peaceably ordered by your governance,
that your Church may joyfully serve you in all godly quietness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
We pray for the cessation of digital attacks governments carry out on public institutions. We pray Lord for awareness and vigilance in the members of many underfunded and understaffed organizations that suffer the pilfering of information. We pray for the safety and privacy of all workers and the tools they use in daily life.
We give thanks and continue to pray for the strength in spirit of Australia’s conservationists. We give thanks for the people who notice and try to resolve the problems of the unique lifeforms you have given Australia Lord. In particular we celebrate and pray for the efforts of people to protect the Tasmanian freshwater crayfish, who has been seen behaving oddly around roads. We pray for success in their endeavors to re-route these unique creatures to safer passages.
We pray for the small number of youths in our community committing anti-social youth crimes. We pray for the Spirit of the adults in these youths lives, so that the youths may be inspired to make better choices. We pray for the success of wholesome activities for youths, like those run by our youth minister.
