Prayer of the Week 3 December 2017

Why wait for the mountains to tumble and the potter to mould you like clay?
Instead of expecting angels to descend, go into the world.
Be like the fig tree and provide fruit for all to eat.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 26 November 2017 (Christ the King)

We give you our heartfelt thanks, loving God, for:
those who have ministered to us in our time of need;
those who have visited us when we were ill;
those who have freed us from prisons of fear or lack of confidence;
those who have listened when we have needed to talk.
Bless them, encourage them in their ministries and strengthen us to follow their example of self-giving and compassion in Jesus’s name.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 19 November 2017

O God, the Holy Spirit:
come to us, and among us;
come as the wind, and cleanse us;
come as the fire, and purify us;
come as the dew, and refresh us.
O God, the Holy Spirit,
Come and be with us.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 5 November 2017 (Prisons Week)

Lord, you offer freedom to all people. We pray for those in prison.
Break the bonds of fear and isolation that exist.
Support with your love prisoners and their families and friends, prison staff and all who care.
Heal those who have been wounded by the actions of others, especially the victims of crime.
Help us to forgive one another, to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly together with Christ in his strength and in his Spirit, now and every day.

Amen
