July 2012 prayers

“Wherever the river flows it will brings life…’ Ezekiel 47:9

You may like to read Ezekiel 47:1-12, the prophet’s vision of healing and life flowing from the Temple of God. It provides a very powerful image for our prayers this month.

  • Pray for all staff working in the National Health Service, especially those in the hospitals and communities we serve.


  •  Pray for all ‘parish nurses’ who work with churches as part of their care for the whole person and whole community. (Google ‘parish nursing’ for more info)


  • Pray for the Hospital Trust in south London/north east Kent (hospitals in Orpington, Woolwich and Sidcup) which is in such debt that it is in danger of being put into administration: and all who are seeking to use diminished resources.


  • Pray for medical teams coming to the Olympics and Paralympics from all across the world


  • Pray for the situation in Syria, Afghanistan and other areas of conflict – that health professionals will be able to provide health care to those injured. Pray for an end to the fighting and unrest.


  • Pray for all HESAS students and staff and their families.


  • Pray for those on the International Nursing Programme, that their time at Glamorgan might be a blessing personally and professionally.


  • Pray for all who are working in stressful situations in the community, that they may find strength and peace.


  • Remember those in different parts of the world who cannot afford health care, pray that health provision will be made available for them.


  • Pray for health professionals who are helping out overseas from the UK & elsewhere.


Lord, may your Kingdom come and your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven!
