Litany for London 7 July 2005

I know that many in MLPK commute into the city every day. I don’t know if any read this. I don’t know if any have been caught up. I don’t know what time they will get home tonight. I don’t know what the feelings are like in many homes here.

But I do know that they are being prayed for.

Sometimes for the parish priest to say the Daily Office and pray for the welfare of the parish it feels like a cop-out, allowing others to take no notice.

Not today.

I just wish I had the audible reminder of a bell to toll to remind the community that yes, the minister is praying.

From all evil and mischief;
from pride, vanity and hypocrisy;
from envy, hated and malice;
and from all evil intent,
good Lord, deliver us.

From famine and disaster;
from violence, murder and dying unprepared,
good Lord, deliver us.

In times of sorrow;
in times of joy;
in the hour of death,
and at the day of judgement,
good Lord, deliver us.

Help and comfort the lonely, the bereaved and the oppressed,
Lord, have mercy.

Keep in safety those who travel, and all who are in danger.
Lord, have mercy.

Heal the sick in body and mind,
and provide for the homeless, the hungry and the destitute.
Lord, have mercy.

Show your pity on prisoners and refugees,
and all who are in trouble.
Lord, have mercy.

Forgive our enemies, persecutors and slanderers,
and turn their hearts.
Lord, have mercy.

Hear us as we remember those who have died in the peace of Christ,
both those who have confessed the faith
and those who faith is known to you alone,
and grant us with them a share in your eternal kingdom.
Lord, have mercy.
