The weather was dreadful but we enjoyed tea and coffee and biscuits at the Cafe at the Hoddom Castle, and then we stopped at St Kentigern’s Field where we sang and prayed (from the bus since the rain was heavy and the ground underfoot soggy):
Glory to the Father, glory to the Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit now and for ever. Amen.
Let us pray:
Loving God, as we honour St Mungo,
we pray for the city he founded and its people.
Make us glad to inherit the Gospel he preached,
and to be ourselves living stones
building up your kingdom of justice and peace.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
We pray for our city and its people: that we may have sound government, kindly and just leadership, effective support in health-care, education, housing and all the other services we need. Lord hear us
We pray for the Archdiocese, for Glasgow Churches Together, and for all the churches in our city: that they will continue to work ever more effectively for the unity for which Christ prayed. Lord, hear us:
We pray for the needs of our country, for the Queen, and for the governments in Edinburgh and Westminster, and for all who hold public office. We pray also for the well-being of the European Union.
Lord, hear us:
We pray for those of our families, our friends, and the choir who are sick, for those who help and care for them; and we pray for our dead, that they may be at peace of the Kingdom of God. Lord, hear us:
Our Father, who art in heaven. . . . .
