Eucharist snipIntercessions 

Father God, who created a world of wonder and joy;

Loving parent to each and every child

Inspire us today and lift our eyes towards you in awe

We lift to you families – children, young people and parents in our churches and communities.

Those we know, those we see around us and those that you see, know and love.

Give us your creativity and your unconditional love to reach out with grace.

Inspire us today and lift our eyes towards you in awe

 

 

Lord Jesus, who welcomed the children;

Who stirred up change, challenged and disturbed.

Engage our thoughts and ideas and open our eyes to injustice

We see unfairness all around us – children in poverty and need, young people suffering in mind and spirit.

Show us ways to shine your light of joy into corners of darkness.

Engage our thoughts and ideas and open our eyes to injustice

 

 

Holy Spirit, who lives in the hearts of young and old;

Who breathes life into the children of God

Guide us this day, teach us something new and give us child-like eyes to see truth

You know where we are on our journey in life; you know the burdens we bring with us.

Help us to lay those before you now – for ourselves and those we know and love.

(moment of quiet to lay our burdens and worries before God )

Give us now a sense of your peace and a freshness and clarity of mind and spirit.

Guide us this day, teach us something new and give us child-like eyes to see truth
