Prayers of intercession written each week by a member of our Benefice


Third Sunday of Trinity 20th June 2021


As we have heard in our reading of the stilling of the storm (Mark 4:35-41), Jesus’ followers were going on a journey to the other side of the lake. The wind and waves suddenly appeared. They were exceedingly fearful for their safety and that they would perish.

Jesus said, ‘Have ye no faith?’ and ‘Peace be still.’


May you now speak to each one of us individually.

O still, small voice of calm. May we have faith and peace.


We pray for the world in the situation of the pandemic.

May we be full of thanks as to where you have put us, in a rural area in the U.K. We have the

countryside where plants grow, flower and pass through the seasons.

O still, small voice of calm. May we have faith and peace.


May we be full of thanks for the vaccination programme here in the U.K.

May we be aware of the problems of other parts of the world where there is very little vaccination yet and people cannot see a way out of the pandemic.

O still, small voice of calm. May we have faith and peace.


May we be thankful for our life and health, which may not be perfect in our eyes, but may we accept it as your plan for us and not be unhappy about all the imperfections that we perceive in our lives, and may we work to improve ourselves as you would want us to be.

O still, small voice of calm. May we have faith and peace.


May we listen to you, Lord God, your word and your plan for each one of us in the journey of life.

May we have peace in our hearts and lives that your will may be done.

May we not be fearful of the future.

May we be still in the presence of the Lord.

O still, small voice of calm. May we have faith and peace.


May the Grace of God, which passes all understanding, be with us all today and forever. Amen
