Prayer of the Week 23 April 2017

Lord Jesus, we often have questions.
We don’t always find an answer,
but we know we can trust you with the worries inside us.
Help us always to look to you when we are unsure.
In your name we ask.

Amen

Prayer of the Week for Easter 16 April 2017

God of Easter and the giver of hope, we worship you.
You are indeed awesome and you shatter death.
The heavy stone was rolled away as it was no match for your strength
and so we come to you in trembling faith:
because you are God over all.
With thankful hearts full of joy we praise you for the gift of life –
even life after death promised us by his resurrection
which we celebrate this morning.

Amen

Prayer of the Week for Palm Sunday, 9 April 2017

Jesus, Lord and King, we welcome you into our midst today.
You are the Alpha and the Omega, before all things and far beyond tomorrow,
the same yesterday, today and forever,
exploding all our preconceptions, our fears, our assumptions and expectations.
Enter our lives today, go before us, walk beside us;
may we always honour your name. May our voices join together to give you all our praise
for you are the king of Kings: the One who comes in the name of Lord

Amen

Prayer of the Week 2 April 2017

Loving God,
you have heard our complaints, our impatience.
Sometimes we become frightened when we move away from you.
Guide our hearts back to you.
Help us to think beyond our own wants
and to desire only to do your will.
Thank you for the many blessings in our life
and for the ways we feel your presence.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 26 March 2017 (Mothering Sunday)

Lord, you are the restorer of our souls, our provider in times of peace and of trial. You nurture us, support and encourage us as a mother to her children. We thank you for your ever-abounding love and ask you to give us eyes of faith that we may choose your way in the face of so many choices. Help us to believe in your promises and to respond to your calling as children do to their mother in Jesus’s name.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 19 March 2017

Beloved God,
the source of all our strength;
watch over us within and without,
that in body we may be protected from all adversity,
and in mind cleansed from all destructive thoughts;
through our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is alive with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God now and for ever.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 12 March 2017

Living God, every day you call us to new lands and new experiences.
Thank you that you go before us, that you provide for us,
that your love surrounds us.
Wherever we go, you are with us;
may we honour you, with our songs, prayers, praise and worship
wherever we gather in your name.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 5 March 2017

We thank you Jesus that you are the son of God; that you did not shrink from who you were meant to be, nor take a different path as suggested by the voice of the deceptive one. Help us then, to follow you this Lenten period as our redeemer, teacher and supreme example of what it means to be truly human.

Amen
