Prayer of the Week 8 July 2018

Generous and loving God, draw our hearts to you
and guide our minds, filling our imaginations and controlling our wills
that we may become wholly yours and utterly dedicated unto you.
And then, use us to grow your kingdom
bringing peace, love and justice where it has been denied, in Jesus’ name.
Amen

Prayer of the Week 1 July 2018

O God you created us in love and for eternity,
and you gave your Son that we should not perish but have eternal life;
as you give us life and love, help us to give our lives and our love to you
and to those we meet on life’s journey,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen

Prayer of the Week 24 June 2018

Beloved God,
as we gather here in the harbour of your safety
we thank you for fellowship and family.
We ask that you will strengthen us, restore us and inspire us with your love.
Lord, would you fill us with your peace
so that as we journey onwards
we would pour out your love and grace to others,
We ask that our souls would catch the wind of your spirit
so that we would take your promises to all the earth.
Amen

Prayer of the Week 17 June 2018

Beloved God, you have made us for yourself and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you.
Pour your love into our hearts and draw us to yourself and so bring us at last to your heavenly city,
where we shall see you face to face: through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord who is alive and
reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
Amen

Prayer of the Week 10 June 2018

Generous God, grant us a vision of your world as your love would have it:
a world where the weak are protected, and none go hungry or poor;
a world where the riches of creation are shared, and everyone can enjoy them;
a world where different races and cultures live in harmony and mutual respect;
a world where peace is built with justice, and justice is guided by love.
Give us the inspiration and courage to build it, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen

Prayer of the Week 3 June 2018

Eternal God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we come to your house alone and together.
We come willingly and with joy to worship your holy name.
With myriad thoughts, and with trillions of reasons, we dare to come,
because you call us to follow your son Jesus Christ – our saviour.
Thank you for welcoming us here this morning.
Amen

Prayer of the Week 27 May 2018

Mysterious God, Father, Mother, Parent, Son and Spirit,
one in three and three in one, we praise your holy name.
Names fight in our brain and scramble from our lips:
Jesus, Redeemer, Creator, Almighty, Abba, Eternal, Lord, Christ, Yahweh, Counsellor, Comforter.
However we see you and whatever we know of you, you are our God and we are your children.
We worship you, adore you, we give you our thanks and praise your holy name.
Amen
