Abraham and faith

 

In time of searching, in time of journey, grant us faith

 

Lord God as we seek to follow in the way of Abraham grant us that same faith which enabled him to risk everything for the sake of a hope beyond imagining

 

Lord in your mercy...

 

In time of disaster, in time of struggle grant us faith

 

Lord God we pray for all people facing change, disaster and uncertainty. Give them faith and hope as they face an unknown future

 

Lord in your mercy...

 

In time of relaxation, in time of retreat grant us faith

 

Lord God we pray for those who are now on holiday. May their plans go smoothly, may their hopes be realized and may their faith be nurtured as they have space from the normal routine of life and work

 

Lord in your mercy...

 

In ordinary time, in everyday time grant us faith

 

Lord God we pray for all those who are in need at this time...

 

Lord in your mercy...

 

In time of death, in time of dying grant us faith

 

Lord God we pray for those who face death, either their own or that of loved ones...

 

Lord in your mercy...

 

In all times and in all places grant us faith

 

Lord God as we go out into the world: in our work, with our family and amongst our friends may we learn what it means to have faith and to trust in your love, whatever the time and whatever the season

 

Lord in your mercy...
