We praise God for his provision for the parish giving particular thanks for the faithful witness and service of so many parishioners to the ministry of the parish and to loving service and pastoral care to one another.
We rejoice in the generous response of parishioners and friends to our Pandemic Financial Appeal. Pray that the final total will provide sufficient funds to supplement regular giving and provide for the parish for the immediate future.
As we cope with the uncertainty and difficulties that COVID brings, we pray for a return to ‘normal’ life. We pray for those couples who plan to come to us for weddings and we pray for the local tourism and hospitality sectors.
We pray for our elderly and frail parishioners, especially those who feel alone. We remember those who have been unable to receive family visits and those who have been unable to travel. We pray for renewed links with families.
We pray for the challenging financial situation facing the parish. We uphold the work of our Parish Working Party as they examine and make recommendations concerning the future direction of the parish and for the deliberations of the Parish Council.
Loving God, assist us as we seek to share your love with all whom we meet in these difficult days. Encourage the disheartened, the weary and those in declining health. May your ongoing care enfold all Christians in Paphos.
