A Prayer for the World

.

I add my voice in this song of prayer. Can you hear me singing?




For the people of Japan,

and Libya;

for our family and friends and neighbours














.

Hear Our Prayer


Music by Steve Bell,


Lyric by Steve Bell and Jamie Howison



Now we pray to You Father for peace in the world


For the right use of all You have given


A respect for creation in us be restored


Lord in Your mercy Hear our prayer


And we pray for the poor of the world everywhere


And for all those who suffer from hunger and fear


For those who are homeless – for those who need care


Lord in Your mercy Hear our prayer



Now we pray for those close to us, those who have needs


For the friends that we love and for all our families


For these loved ones we pray Jesus grant them Your peace


Lord in Your mercy Hear our prayer



And we pray for ourselves for forgiveness of sins


For the evil around that is born from within


And we ask You oh God that You heal us again


Lord in Your mercy Hear our prayer



Now in closing we ask You dear Father on our knees


Lord for mercy on all those we call our enemies


So that all might be one in Your love and Your peace


Lord in Your mercy Hear our prayer
