We pause to offer prayers and thanksgiving that we bring to our celebration of Holy Communion.

O God,

whose word is life,

and whose delight is to answer our cry:

give faith like that of the woman

who refused to remain an outsider,

so that we too may have the wit to argue

and demand that our children be made whole,

through Jesus Christ.



Prayer points:

Give thank for the faithful people of our parish.

All our ministries with children and youth.

Wise stewardship of our resources.


The sick: Maree Kesby, Marie Cormick, Nathan Giles, Joan Sheaffe, Owen Miller,

Olive Sheaffe, Robyn, Peg Parry, Glen Simpkins, Joy Hutley, Eric Pearce, Len & Maureen Clapham, and Bernice Robinson.


The bereaved: We remember all who have gone before and pray for their families and friends.

The Anglican Parish of Lismore in the Diocese of Grafton is committed to protecting your privacy.

The people on this sick list have requested prayers at this time. Please inform the Parish Office of any changes.
