Points for Prayer 3 For Our Institution
Updated: May 20
For our Charitable work: We thank You for the considerable charitable support that has been provided by members to the NHS and to the vulnerable and aged in society. Reveal ways in which on-going assistance can be provided.
For our Grand Master and Grand Lodge officers and all in positions of leadership: Continue to give them wisdom and direction in decisions they will take for the welfare of our Institution. May we all seek to follow their directions that we may experience the blessing of unity at this challenging period.
For all Brethren: Empower us by Your grace to live out our faith and let our light shine for Your glory. May we be good neighbours.
We also bring before you in prayer, Brethren in other jurisdictions and the members of the Association of Loyal Orangewomen of Ireland and the Junior Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland.
As we mourn the loss of Brethren: God of all comfort and Father of mercies, as we sorrow at our loss, we thank You for the memory of beloved Brethren who served faithfully and we pray for grace and strength to be given to their loved ones who mourn their passing.
