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...

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 for this week

Loving Father, in this week’s Gospel reading we see Jesus responding to the situation he found himself in with calm.

This week we have seen some tension around the rail strike. As people react to this situation and with potential for other pay disputes, we ask for calm and fair negotiations. We pray for those who mediate disputes and look to resolve them. May they listen carefully and speak with wisdom.  We pray for patience, consideration and kindness in talks and ask that all involved find a resolution that works.

We also pray for those who are anxious about the cost of living. Help all who are struggling and worried about what the future holds.

Loving Father, in this week’s reading, when Jesus arrived in a village, he was not given a welcome.

We live in a world full of displaced people, many of whom experience what it is like to be unwelcome. As reporting from places like Syria and Yemen moves down the news agenda, we know that you see everyone who has been forced to leave their home; everyone who has fled in terror and everyone whose future is highly uncertain. Remind us to keep praying for people even when they no longer occupy the headlines. Thank you for the people who work diligently with refugees, for those who advocate for others and speak for people who have no voice.

Lord, may those who have left their homes find welcome and a secure future.
 

Loving Father, in this week’s reading we see that the call of Jesus requires us to pay whole-hearted attention to the work of the kingdom.

As we move through our week and around our neighbourhood help us to notice signs of the kingdom of God. We also pray for your kingdom to come here on earth. We pray for places that are suffering real unrest. We pray for Ukraine. We pray for miners in the Central African Republic under attack by mercenaries. We pray for people in India suffering flooding after monsoons. We pray for Afghanistan now suffering the after-effects of an earthquake. We pray for people close to us finding life hard at the moment.

Loving Father, this week’s reading shows us that we need to decide to follow Jesus.

There is so much competition for our time and attention: social media, different streaming platforms, the 24-hour news cycle. With all that we juggle each week help us to make space for Christ. Help us to prioritise our relationship with you Lord and to make time to learn more and grow in prayer. We pray for our church. We pray that we would help each other in our journeys of faith.
