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.
We pray for those who have been helped by the night shelter this winter; may they find long-term accommodation and support in 2019.
We pray for the team working on the recruitment of a Children's and Young People's Worker; may the new advert bring renewed interest from applicants.
Teach us, O God, to trust your providence, ordered and sure; to accept your wisdom, unerring and true; and to rejoice in your love, unbounded and eternal; through Christ our Lord, Amen (Charles Simeon)
We pray for the people of Malawi, Zimbabwe and Mozambique following the cyclone that struck those countries; may their Governments and the relief agencies bring food and shelter where needed.
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.
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
