Pray with us

The World
We pray for the chaotic situation in South Africa where by violence and looting have broken out. The roots of this unrest lie deep in Apartheid, and involve issues of poverty and inequality triggered by the arrest of President Zuma who failed to attend his corruption trial. We pray for the worsening situation in Afghanistan as the Taliban advances and people begin to flee across the border into Tajikistan for safety. As the democracy in the US is threatened by changes to voting access, we pray for balanced and measured consideration of all the implications on both sides of the Republican/Democrat divide. We continue to pray for people in countries around the world as COVID-19 causes serious problems for leaders and citizens in all number of dimensions. In Russia where strong control of restrictions and low levels of vaccinations exacerbate problems have arising from a third wave with the Delta variant; in Africa where only some 2% of the population are vaccinated; in Indonesia, especially Java and Bali where case numbers continue to rise; in the US where case numbers are also rising amid the fast-spreading Delta variant and resistance to vaccinations. In these, and all countries, we pray that people will take responsibility and consider risks to others as well as themselves, and act appropriately while understanding that God is sovereign.

Our City and State
We pray for ourselves as our COVID situation has changed so rapidly. Help us to be cheerfully understanding as we change and cancel plans, reminded that our trust in God is paramount as we follow requirements to keep each other safe. While findings continue to be confronting, we give thanks for continuing research that is highlighting dimensions of family violence in specific community areas; Pray that church leaders may think imaginatively about future directions for diminishing Churches.

The Anglican Communion
Eglise Anglicane du Rwanda (Abp Laurent Mbanda). The Archbishop of Canterbury, along with the International President of Red Cross, has called for a more equable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines throughout the world, saying that global leaders have a choice between vaccine nationalism and human solidarity.

The Australian Anglican Church
The Diocese of North Queensland (Bp Keith Joseph, Dean Kenneth Lay, Clergy & People). The recent statistics investigating the relevance, experience and impact of family violence within faith communities are a cause of concern (and therefore for prayer) for us all. While contact information in being circulated in the media, if you have any personal concerns, any of the Cathedral staff could also be a confidential contact point.

The Diocese of Melbourne
Victorian Council of Churches (Rev Fr Shenouda Boutros, President, Ian Smith, Executive Officer); St John's Bentleigh (David Powys).

Our Cathedral
We pray that we will continue to work together to find creative ways to engage in ministry according to what the limitations will allow. Help us all to be more focused on what we can do, rather than what is still restricted, and guide us as we make plans for opportunities of being together.

Those in Sickness or Need
Joan and Bill Woodhouse, Daniel Anneslay, John Zhong, Emilio, Chris, Robyn & David Forbes, Judy Clift, Andrew, Janet Marsden, John, Henri-Felix Vinson, Sum Vita, Hodgson Family, Jennie Carolane-Balks, Farah Le Dupont, Doug Baker, Rhonda Bone, Monique Quinn, Martin, Rebecca, Pam Benstead, Eric Young.
