Loving God, we come in this sanctuary, led by your spirit. Teach us your ways, that we may walk in your truth.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 16 July 2017

Heavenly Father,
you have called us from all the corners of the earth
to be disciples of Christ,
to continue his work of reconciliation
and reveal you to the world:
forgive us the sins which tear us apart;
give us the courage to overcome our fears
and to seek that unity which is your gift and your will;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 9 July 2017

God of many names: you are gracious in your loving, merciful in your judgements, steadfast in your faithfulness and compassionate to us all. May we always be thankful for all you have done. May we always sing your praises, speak of your greatness, and bring glory to you by our actions from birth to the eternity of your rest.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 2 July 2017

Happy are those who live by the light of God, who walk in the way of Jesus Christ, and who worship in spirit and in truth. For they praise God by the good they do, they glorify Christ by their faithfulness, and they witness to God’s spirit of love. And we too come to worship God through Jesus our saviour.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 25 June 2017

Loving God, you make us in your image.
Forgive us when we fail to see your image in each other,
when we give in to greed and indifference,
when we do not question the systems that are life-denying.
As we are made in your image,
let us live in your image and be Christ-like
in service, endurance and love.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 11 June 2017

O triune God, what an exciting mystery we celebrate today, that you, our God, are three persons in one being! Your essence is so awesome, it is beyond our understanding. Keep us as your own, and each day move us to declare: Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty! We ask this in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Saviour, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect harmony.

Amen

Prayer of the Week 4 June 2017

Spirit of God, come to us now,
so that, in this time of Pentecost,
the sparkling light of faith,
the rushing wind of hope
and the joyful sound of praise
may echo round the world,
may echo in the church, and find their response in us.

Amen
