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.
Lord Jesus Christ, before the creation of the mountains, you were. When the last second of time passes, you will be. Help us to see the context of our lives within your perspective, held forever in your everlasting love, and enfolded in your never-ending care; our first and last, in whom past, present and future are as one. Amen.
We give thanks for all the work that has been done since February 2016 to plan for a new children's and young people's worker; we pray for Vanessa, Carolyn and Nick as we readvertise the post, and for Sue and Malcolm who are supporting them; we pray for anybody who sees the advert and feels that they will suit the post - may they find the time and energy to apply.
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 Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda, for the Methodist Church in Wales, for the Leicester Trinity Circuit, and for our pastoral team and all the members of our Church family who are good neighbours to those around them.
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
