People involved in this ministry are constantly on the look out for suitable material. The intercessions are compatible with the traditional areas of church, political governance/world concerns, neighbourhood, sick and deceased. As the author has drawn primarily on the gospel for inspiration, the prayers will be relevant however many readings are used in a given service.
