Sharing God's Love
Prayers for our community and those in need
Loving God, You are always more ready to hear than we are to pray and give more than either we desire or deserve. We bring these prayers confident of the justice of Your answers.
We pray for those in our Church family who are experiencing ill health, anxiety, problems at school or work, or difficult family situations - we ask that they know your love, comfort and strength, and that we their neighbours will know how to be the body of Christ for them.
Let us remember those who have died for their country in war, and all who have given their lives for freedom, justice and the hope of peace. As we look forward and seek the way of peace and reconciliation, Lord we ask you to strengthen our hearts, hands, and minds, to work together for peace; to see you in one another, and to seek your kingdom above all things; that your will may be seen to be done, and your Kingdom come, through Jesus Christ, the Lord of lords and King of kings. Amen.
When work is fulfilling or when work seems futile, when there is too much to do or too little, Christ be with us, Christ encourage us, Christ comfort us, Christ enliven us. Amen.
Mighty Lord, you are our light, our hope, our passion. From life’s first cry to final breath you are here with us. O Lord, as the sun comes up and when it goes down, we say, 'Amen'.
We pray for the Whitechapel Methodist Mission, Wycombe Homeless Connection and all those caring for homeless people during the winter months; may their efforts bring comfort and new hope.
We pray for Your guidance when we think about the use of our gifts of time, energy and money; help us to see how these precious resources shared by our Church family can be used to fulfil our vision of a Church caring for each other and our neighbours, and sharing the Good News.
We pray for the Church in Belize, Honduras, Guyana, Leeward Islands, Panama & Costa Rica, for the Chester & Stoke-on-Trent District, and for the Market Harborough Circuit.
Help us to face the future with courage and assurance, knowing that nothing can ever part us from Your love. Lord Jesus we offer these prayers in Your name. AMEN
