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.
Amen

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.
Amen

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.
Amen

Prayer of the Week 23 September 2018

Living God, we come before your Holy presence
knowing that you will hear our prayers which come from repentant hearts.
Help us to love our neighbours more than we love ourselves,
respecting differences and embracing our commonalities.
Break our hearts for the things that break yours
and help us to echo your whispers of mercy and love.
Use our hands to extend help to those who need it
and guide our hearts to an everlasting peace in Jesus name.
Amen

Prayer of the Week 16 September 2018

Amen

Loving God, in Christ, you offer us a vision of a world transformed,
where all are valued, where your justice reigns,
where hearts are strangely warmed by your grace.
Open our hearts and minds that we may catch your vision,
and be empowered by your Holy Spirit to work with you,
that your will may be done on earth as it is in heaven
Amen

Prayer of the Week 2 September 2018

God our Father,

Send your Holy Spirit to build up our unity,
inspire our worship, and lead us on
in the service of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Amen

Together with you, and each other, we can do great things in your service.
We can be the people you want us to be.
Bless us all as we ask in your Son’s name.
