Intercessory Prayer
Intercessory Prayer throughout the Parish
Jesus taught us to pray; to lift our hearts
and burdens to God. What an awesome
privilege?! There are many ways we pray
for others; we pray individually and in
groups and we also have several ways of
organised prayer:
The 24/7 Prayer Chain is coordinated
by Marion Henderson; phone 04 905 1171
or email [email protected]
Specific names can be given to the
parish office for inclusion in the news
sheet. This is for one calendar month only.
You can write your prayer on a ‘postit’ and stick it up on one of the prayer
walls, either at St Paul’s or St Mark’s.
A parish prayer group meets each
Friday in the Searle Room at St Paul’s
between 11am-12noon. Kathleen and John Fleck oversee this group.
There is always someone available to talk or pray with you during or after
any service.

Lectionary Readings for Sunday 9 Nov 2014
32 Sunday in Ordinary Time - Green
Psalm 70 An urgent prayer for the Lord’s assistance in a time of trouble.
Wisdom of Solomon 6:12-16 Solomon exhorts all kings and rulers to seek out
wisdom, whom he personifies as a ‘beautiful woman’ who responds to all that
search for her. Wisdom existed from the beginning of creation, and her pursuit
leads to the Kingdom of God.
1 Thessalonians 4:23-18 Paul is writing in 51 AD from Corinth to the Church in
Thessalonica, which he had founded two years previously, urging them to love
their fellow Christians. He comforts them in their concern over the faithful who
have already died, promising that God will raise them up through Christ at his
coming on the day of the Lord.
Matthew 25:1-13 One of the latest of Jesus’ parables recorded by Matthew, the
story of the Ten Bridesmaids reminds us that to join in celebration at the Lord’s
coming, we must be constantly prepared for his arrival.
