Praying At Home (short version)

Praying at Home - Appendix VII

Sunday 20th June Trinity III (Father’s Day)

O Lord, in your mercy hear our prayers: and as you give us the desire to pray, grant us your help and protection; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Job 38:1-11; 2Corinthians 6:1-13; Mark 4:35-41

A Prayer for Fathers

Heavenly Father, you entrusted your Son Jesus, the child of Mary, to the care of Joseph, an earthly father. Bless all fathers as they care for their families. Give them strength and wisdom,
tenderness and patience; support them in the work they have to do, protecting those who look to them,
as we look to you for love and salvation, through Jesus Christ our rock and defender. Amen

 

Sunday 27th June Trinity IV

O God, the protector of all who trust in you, without whom nothing can be whole and nothing can be holy: increase your mercy towards us, that, with you as our ruler and guide, we may so enjoy the good things of time, as to not lose the things of eternity; through Jesus Christ, our Lord who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world, without end. Amen

The Church Belongs to the Scottish Episcopal Church, Diocese of Edinburgh

We are a warm and friendly community with the feel of a village church, despite being just a stone's-throw away from Edinburgh city centre. We come with many different ideas about life, but are joined by one thing – the love of God. We enjoy exploring the challenges the Gospel puts before us and are happy to keep asking questions rather than finding definitive answers.

The Good Shepherd belongs to the Scottish Episcopal Church and we are members of the ecumenical Murrayfield Churches Together.

Whether you are visiting the area, are considering joining our congregation or wish to enquire about a wedding or baptism, please get in touch or follow us via our facebook page

We would like everyone to be able to enjoy our services and activities.  See our accessibility page for more information.  Our resources page provides some suggestions for worshipping from home.
