May Day intercessions

Loving Mother, Creator G*d,
We thank you for the beautiful spring weather we enjoy in these isles,
And we pray that you make us your bright rays of sunshine for someone in their grey showers.
In your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Comrade Christ, our Light and our Way,
We thank you for everyone who works for the good of the people and the community — especially our public servants and those who challenge the callous narrative of austerity for the people, prosperity for the rich,
And we pray for all those who struggle in their work, or with under- or unemployment, or who are disabled by our broken society, and for all who are complicit in their oppression.
In your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Sister Spirit, wild goose,
We thank you for everyone who offers hospitality and welcome to your belovèd children,
And we pray for our siblings who seek refuge, whether wanting — as we all do — a better life, or fleeing war or oppression.
In your mercy,
Hear our prayer.
