Almighty God, our Heavenly Father,
We bring to you our prayers for all Ministers of our faith, all deacons and lay preachers, evangelists and teachers and all those who by their teaching, encouragement and example have helped us to discover and follow the way of Jesus.
We are aware that at this time, when fewer people are offering for the Ministry, those who do your work are often stretched to their limit. We pray you will bless each one with the strength and encouragement they need. Refresh them by your Holy Spirit, the great Enabler.
Show us who pray how we too may share in spreading the good news of your love for all people, shown in the gift of your Son, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray.
