and through compassion and solidarity with the poorest among us,
we may indeed learn to be rich in love.

Amen

Knit us together, Lord Jesus, and draw us deeper into the Father’s love.

We praise you, Lord Jesus, for being the voice of peace when we are angry,
for being the voice of hope when we are afraid,

We give you our heartfelt thanks Loving God for the gift of Christ Jesus in our lives.

Prayer of the Week 30 April 2017

Lord of all, we praise and adore you, for you are indeed good. You hear the cries and the whispers of our hearts. You know every aspect of our lives and still love us with a love unfailing. You come and walk with us when we are distressed, sad and lonely. You invite us to know you better in the sharing of bread and wine, and we thank you for that privilege. We pray that we embrace it every day of our lives in Jesus, name.

Amen

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
