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......

Know that as you journey through this day, that you have a helper, a source of strength and comfort, the reassurance that we are never further from God than a whisper.

Prayers

Lord, you know each of us inside and out. You know our deepest failings, yet still you love us. We are sorry for the times when what you see on the inside just doesn’t match up to what we show to the outside world. You also know our deepest needs and our deepest hurts. We ask you to give us the courage to face these places of pain and difficulty, give us the wisdom to ask for help from others and the grace to accept it.  And we ask you to give us the insight to see where others need our support and to be prepared to go that extra mile for them. We lift to you now any amongst our family, friends and church whose needs we know, especially those on our hearts

Lord, we thank you for this church community. Inspire us to live faithfully under your leadership. We thank you for each encouragement that someone from this church has brought to us this week. As we worship you and listen to your word, renew our commitment to following you and our determination to support one another in living a life of integrity.  We pray for any who will be married or baptised here soon. Help us to support them as a church family.

Lord we know that living faithfully for you is often easier on a Sunday in this place than it is in our homes, schools and workplaces. Help us to remember what we have learnt today as we go forward into the week ahead. As many schools return this week, we pray for pupils and staff with all the difficulties and excitements that a new school year brings. We especially pray for any starting new schools this week. We ask for your wisdom to fill our minds and your love to fill our hearts as we interact with family, friends and colleagues. May our words be carefully chosen and our actions always be kind and loving.

Heavenly Father, we pray for our world. We know that there are many places where your values of justice and mercy are not upheld: we lift before you Fairtrade organisations, those fighting for climate justice, those seeking to rid the world of racism and inequality. Help us to think of small or larger actions that we can do this week, as individuals, families or a church, that will enhance the extension of your values in the world.

Lord, we cry out to you for Afghanistan. We do not know the true extent of what is happening there, but you see it all with compassion, anger and pain. Lord, protect all those who are in danger; help them to know that you are there. We pray for wisdom for the Taliban, that they may know that it is you who rule. We ask that your peace will reign in that land. We pray for safety for all who are fleeing and that, once it is out of the headlines, the world will not turn its back.
