Prayer of the Week 18 November 2018

God, our rock and our redeemer,
we pray for those forced to leave to support families;
we pray for lives torn apart by absence and loss;
we pray for people missing loved ones and home;
we pray for chaplains, pastors and advocates in this context.
May we be willing to share our selves with the stranger in our midst

Prayer of the Week 11 November 2018

Living God, you call us into a deeper relationship with you.
You hear the cry of the weak and you value each of us, whatever our circumstances.
We praise you for your abundant generosity, for your astonishing grace
and we give thanks that we are called to reflect those qualities in our own lives.
Remember us Lord as we remember those who have fought the good fight
and now rest in your love and peace.

Prayer of the Week 4 November 2018

Blessed are those who set their hearts on God and hold fast to his word.
Blessed are those who are faithful in prayer, and whose songs are of praise.
Blessed are those who listen to the teachings of Scripture and live them out.
Blessed are we as we gather together to worship in Jesus’ name –
for he is here, he is among us.

Prayer of the Week 28 October 2018

Living God, we lift our voices in praise of your holy name.
We proclaim you our saviour, our redeemer, our mighty defender.
You alone are the maker and sustainer of us all; you alone deserve our worship.
Give us eyes to see your glory.
Help us to shake off our sluggishness, and to share our hopes and sorrows with you,
as you understand us and love us completely.

Prayer of the Week 14 October 2018

Lord, you are God from everlasting to everlasting: alpha and omega;
creator of mountains and seas, of valleys and trees.
With creation we give you our praise, lifting our voices to you, offering our lives anew;
for you alone, God, are worthy to receive all our praises now and for ever.

Prayer of the Week 7 October 2018

For the promise of harvest contained within a seed; we thank you.
For the oak tree within an acorn, the bread within a grain,
the apple within a pip and the mystery of nature,
gift wrapped for us to sow: we thank you.
For our families, friends and the gift of life,
Lord of the Harvest we thank you in Jesus’ name.

Prayer of the Week 30 September 2018

God our Father,
in a wonderful way you guide the work of angels and men.
May those who serve you constantly in heaven
keep our lives safe from all harm on earth.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit.
