Prayer of the Week 20 May 2018 (Pentecost)

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.

Prayer of the Week 13 May 2018

O God of earth and sky,
as Jesus came among us in Bethlehem to raise us up to heaven,
so today we recall his departing from us at Jerusalem to be in all places.
Though he is hidden from our sight,
enable us to abide in him
by the power and grace of the Holy Spirit,
until his mercy and grace fill your whole creation


Prayer of the Week 29 April 2018

Loving God, just like the first disciples, we abide in your love –
for you have sent your Spirit to us. Just like the early apostles,
we have seen your glory in the person of your Son.
So, we confess Jesus Christ as Lord, for we have known him in our lives
and believe what he has shown us of your love

Prayer of the Week 22 April 2018

Jesus, Lord and Master, you call us by name.
Open our ears to listen to your calling;
help us to be open to your Holy Spirit in new ways.
Enable us and all who hear your call to ministry
to give ourselves generously to your service
in the Church and in the World.

Prayer of the Week 15 April 2018

Almighty God, reveal yourself to us
as we listen to your word in Scripture and preaching,
and respond to you in prayer and song.
Make yourself known to us,
as we recall the stories of our faith
and witness to the faith we have in you.
Help us to recognise you in one another
in the fellowship we share.

Prayer of the Week 8 April 2018

When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house were locked,
Jesus stood among them and said: Peace be with you!
Lord, we recognise your presence with us now.
We acclaim you as our risen Saviour.
May your peace be with us as we gather to worship and sing your praise.

Prayer of the Week 1 April 2018 (Easter)

As we celebrate his resurrection,
we remember his life.
As we await his return,
we surrender our hearts fully to God.
Lord Jesus, you show us
there is no wound too deep,
and no hurt too unbearable
that you cannot heal.
Risen Christ, show us how we can act in faith,
live in hope and serve those who are broken and poor in the world.

Prayer of the Week 25 March 2018 (Holy Week)

Merciful God,
as we enter this holy week and gather at your house of prayer,
turn our hearts again to Jerusalem,
to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ,
that, united with Christ and all the faithful,
we may one day enter in triumph the city not made with hands,
the new Jerusalem, eternal in the heavens,
where, with you and the Holy Spirit, Christ lives in glory for ever.
