These Prayers of Concern are based on the 23rd Psalm and written by Gill Whittingham
Loving Lord, we pray for the lost sheep of our world, those whose lives are governed by wealth, greed and power and for all those who suffer at their hands. For those who feel that they don’t belong or fit in and whose lives are destroyed by hatred and prejudice.
For those who find facing reality hard to do become addicted to things which they thought would make life bearable.
For those who are sad, lonely or confused who long for company and a listening ear. For those who’ve lost loved ones and are still grieving and finding it hard to fill the gap which has appeared in their lives.
For those who are ill who are facing more tests and treatments and who long for their quality of life to improve and to feel whole again. And for those suffering because of a breakdown of family life and relationships.
We pray also for ourselves. You, Lord, are the Good Shepherd who lays down his life for his sheep. Thank you, that you know us and call us by name.
Thank you that you would search and search just for one missing sheep out of a hundred—even it were us—and not rest until it was back in the fold.
And thank you, too, for the great words of the psalms, which comfort, challenge and inspire us.
We shall not want, Lord, for we are yours, and you have given us what we need.
Thank you for green pastures. Thank you for quiet waters. Thank you for refreshing my soul.
Even when we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we will not fear.You, Lord, are our shepherd.
You have called us by name. And you have searched, until you have found us.
Enfold us in your love. In Christ Jesus we pray, Amen.
