Prayer of the Week 7 January 2018

Lord Jesus, we gather to meet you in word, in spirit and in community.
We bring to you our burdens and our joys,
our fears and hopes for ourselves, for those dear to us as well as for your Church.
Forgive our brokenness and frailty, our thoughtlessness and negligence
and guide us with your Holy Spirit in this New Year.
Be present to us in our worship
and send us out to see you at work in the world around us.
