Prayers of the Faithful Priest: With humble and confident hearts let us turn to God
in prayer Lord we pray for the Church;may it continue to provide compassion, love
and comfort to all, especially in our darkest days. Lord hear us. We pray for the
sick and those with physical and mental health issues, and for those who are living
with addiction and depression; that they may find the strength and support they need
to face each new day. Lord hear us. We pray for those whose lives have been effected
by the loss of a loved one through suicide. We ask for the peace that only you can
offer; may you give us a renewed sense of hope and purpose in life even in the midst
of sorrow. Lord hear us. We pray for our clergy;give them support and strength
in this difficult part of their ministry. Help them in turn, to support and comfort
bereaved families, friends, colleagues and communities at the time of a suicide.
Lord hear us. We pray for statutory and voluntary bodies that provide resources and
support. God bless their efforts to seek and raise awareness so that we may build
a more caring and compassionate society; may you be with our doctors, therapists,
social workers and policy makers. Lord hear us. We pray for a moment in silence for
our own special intentions.Lord hear us. We pray for those deceased members of our
parish, for those whose anniversaries occur at this time. And on this Flourish!
Sunday we remember especially those who have died by suicide. May they all rest in
peace. Lord hear us. Celebrant: For each person here today; help us to open our ears
and eyes that we might recognise the confusion, hurt and fear in all our lives. May
we be compassionate, loving, gentle, kind and patient. May we go forward today with
a renewed sense of vision, with new hope and possibilities for the future. Through
Christ our Lord, Amen.

call him! In the place of fear, God’s strength to uphold us. In the place of emptiness,
God’s wisdom to guide us. In the place of confusion, God’s eye for our seeing. In
the place of dejection, God’s hope to sustain us. In our darker moments may we know
the generous presence of God. We give thanks for peace of mind and pray for all
who are disturbed or distressed. The blessing of acceptance be yours. The blessing
of forgiveness be yours. The blessing of gentleness be yours. The blessing of resilience
be yours. The blessing of eternal life be yours.
