- on this Sunday after Ascension Day, as we continue in prayer as part of Thy Kingdom Come, we pray: ‘Almighty God, your ascended Son has sent us into the world

to preach the good news of your kingdom: inspire us with your Spirit and fill our hearts with the fire of your love, that all who hear your Word may be drawn to you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

- for Sharon & John to be married here next Saturday; for God’s blessing in all that they share together.

- as Christian Aid Week begins, we give thanks and pray for the ongoing work to help change the lives of people in the poorest communities around the world. As church services take place, we pray for God to speak to the hearts of many through Christian Aid speakers & stories.

- this week is also Mental Health Awareness Week, focussing this year on stress, and those who are struggling to cope. We pray for those who long to know peace, that they may be encouraged and strengthened, and know the peace of God that passes understanding.

- as we witness an increase in communication and discourse between North and South Korea we ask that these steps of diplomacy are successful and result in a safer and more tolerant world.

- for all world leaders to work towards peace, love and   co-operation between all people. For the trouble-torn areas of our planet, that those who strive for peace with justice may never lose heart and may draw strength from the Lord’s words, “Peace be with you”.

- for the Windrush generation: that they receive justice and are treated with the dignity that they deserve.

- for an end to knife crime on our streets. We pray for all who have been affected in recent weeks.

- for our young people as they prepare for and sit important exams - at school, college and university - SATs, GCSE and A levels, university and college exams. For the peace of Christ to surround and protect them. For concentration and for all they need to do their best.
