Prayers

‘Oh, come let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker.’ Psalm 95:6

You don’t have to know any special prayers if you want to pray – in fact, words can often get in the way. Just picture Jesus, and then say what is in your heart, what you feel.

Not all prayers are answered in the way we might expect or desire, and we don’t always pray for God’s will to be done! Nevertheless, God hears every prayer.

Prayers this Week

We pray for the church, that we may be a light to the nations and an instrument of God’s saving message to all who are seeking direction and a deeper meaning for their life. 

We pray for greater awareness of God’s call in our lives, that  we may listen and live out the mission to which our Saviour invites us.  

We pray for Christian Unity, that God will remove the walls of misunderstanding, help us co-operate in serving those in need, and bring us to a greater appreciation of the gifts of the Spirit at work in one another’s communities. 

We pray for all who are worried or anxious, that God will ease their fear, help them to recognise the divine presence with them, and give them courage.  

We pray for all who have suffered from natural disasters, particularly the people of Australia and Puerto Rico; that God will give them hope, protect them from further harm, and touch the hearts of many to assist them.

We pray for peace, that the Holy Spirit will open dialogue between nations and groups that are in conflict and guide all to peaceful ways to resolve disputes.
