Palanca - Prayer requests

Each month will be praying for the various parishes and 4th Day Communities within Chester Diocese and for those in the worldwide community

Gracious God, from you everything flows and in you all things have their being. Forgive us for spoiling your gift of creation, so wonderfully crafted and freely given: for the times when we have forgotten your imprint on creation and have abused it; for the times when we have caused needless waste and damage; for the times when we have chosen momentary pleasure over long-term necessity. Grant that we may thank you for your gift of creation by conserving natural resources and by using only that which we need. May our stewardship of your world be a true example of Christian care. Amen

In this month we ask for your continued prayers for the deanerys of Chester.

The Diocese is encouraging us to download the Prayermate app and use that to pray for our churches. Search for Chester Diocese in the app and add it to one of your subject lists, and then each day the prayer from the Diocesan Cycle will appear.

Please pray that the power of the Holy Spirit will encourage and inspire the clergy and congregations of the following Churches to deepen their faith and spread God’s love in their communities:

Loving God.  We lift up our church leaders to you. For ministers and deacons who guide and guard our spiritual welfare; for lay ministers, pastoral workers and the ordinary people who do your work for their love of You. Instill shepherd hearts in them. Lead them to walk with you and showcase your love, mercy and forgiveness.
