Prayers

Take a moment to listen to the still small voice of God within the bustle of the day which has begun. Find a quiet place where you can enjoy precious moments of peace in God's presence. Sit quietly and listen to the sounds of the world around you, both outside and in the place where you are. Breathe slowly and rest in God's presence... You may find it helpful to listen to the Daily Prayers on the Pray as you Go website

Prayers for this week


Take a moment to listen to the still small voice of God within the bustle of the day which has begun. Find a quiet place where you can enjoy precious moments of peace in God's presence. Sit quietly and listen to the sounds of the world around you, both outside and in the place where you are. Breathe slowly and rest in God's presence......

For all whose day starts with anxiety, as they leave the security of home
worrying about the risk of infection; particularly those whose health or age classifies them as vulnerable. Lordd, be close, keep them safe, along with all whose tasks today includes the care of frail and elderly. And for all of us, grant wisdom to make sensible choices, not just for ourselves, but for everybody.

 

You call us to service, to be your eyes and ears, hands and voice in this your world. To open our eyes not only to the beauty and love which you create, but the injustice, hate and suffering that mankind generates.

To open our ears not only to the chattering of this coming week, but the searching, fears and questioning of all whom we shall meet.

To open our hands not only to those we choose our lives to share, but in welcome,
love and fellowship to all whom we encounter.

To open our mouths not only to speak platitudes and simple words, But the truths you lay
upon our hearts Your Word for this your world. You call us to service, to be your eyes and ears, hands and voice in this your world.

For those who are stressed out: words from Psalm 121
"I lift my eyes up to the hills- where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord the Maker of Heaven and Earth' He will not let your foot slip - he who watches over you will not sleep.

We pray for all whose lives have been touched by tragedy, whether by accident or a deliberate act.
For those who mourn, immerse them in your love and lead them through this darkness into your arms, and light. For those who comfort, be in both the words they use and all that's left unspoken. fill each heart with love. We ask this through Jesus Christ, whose own suffering brought us life, here and for eternity. Amen



A personal prayer that you may like to use

Lord, a new week lies ahead of me
and I don’t really know what it will bring.
Help me to be aware of people around me
who are struggling in any way.
May I be sensitive to their needs
and seek your wisdom as I come alongside them.
I want to be there for them, Lord, bearing your blessing.
Amen.
