Rogationtide was traditionally a time for prayer over the growing crops, and is now often an occasion to reflect on our care for the land. Pray we may use the resources of creation with care and generosity, and with thought for the generations to follow.

Pray for those to be ordained this year as deacon or priest. Pray for present and future training incumbents, and all entrusted with the care, encouragement and pastoral support of curates in training.

World Turtle Day on Monday raises awareness of turtles and tortoises as vulnerable species in need of protection and conservation, and perhaps especially of the harm done to sea turtles by the loss of beaches where eggs are laid, and pollution of ocean waters.

On Ascension Day, give thanks for Christ ascended and glorified; and may we like the first apostles wait prayerfully for the gift of the Spirit.
Ascension Day also begins the “Thy Kingdom Come” global prayer movement, inviting Christians of all denominations and traditions worldwide to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. Pray for the Church in mission, and that we may live out our faith boldly, lovingly and generously, so that those who search and ask may discern the truth of Christ in us.

Pray this week also for the missing children of our world - among them those lost or abducted, the many street children, and children snatched or separated from one parent following the breakdown of a relationship. In this week that commemorates John and Charles Wesley, pray for the Methodist church; and give thanks for the legacy of prayer and hymnody by which the Wesleys enrich our worship.
