Prayer of the Week 20 September 2020

We praise you, Lord, for all that you are, for the creation that is yours, for its beauty and wonder, its diversity and richness.
We praise you for your presence and comfort that swaddle us in your purity and enrich us with your abundance.
We praise you for your steadfastness and your amazing grace that has rescued us.
Amen

Prayer of the Week 13 September 2020

We come to your house, Lord, to join our sisters and brothers in your praise.
So many people in this world are prevented from worshipping you
or reaching their true potential, by different challenges.
Some are oppressed while others lack confidence in their own abilities.
Use us, Lord, to reach out to them and lift them.
Show them that you love and value them for who they are, not what they have.
You were able to use ordinary people like fishermen and bring out the best in them
in order to spread your word of love, peace, joy and justice.
Be close, now to those on the margins and wrap them in your arms we pray.
Amen

Prayer of the Week 6 September 2020

Almighty God, we tremble as we think of who we are and who you are.
Bring us now, in this moment, to know you.
See us as we are, and see our yearning to be more like you.
May we lay aside anything that hinders our journey with you,
and with our friends and neighbours and we ask in Jesus’ name.
Amen

We make our prayer through Jesus Christ your Son and our Lord
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

that we may always acclaim him as Lord,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God for ever and ever.
Amen

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
