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.

What’s On

    • A Book of Common Prayer Communion, followed by coffee, takes place every Wednesday at 10 am.

Prayers this Week

We pray for openness of heart: that we may allow the pain and suffering of others to move our hearts and spirits to a loving response.

We pray for insight: that God will help us recognise our neighbour in the refugee, the homeless person, and in the members of other cultures, and inspire us in responding to their needs today.

We pray for conversion of the spirit: that God will teach us how to love with our whole heart and guide us in moving our religious ideals from ideas to concrete practices.

We pray for freedom of spirit: that God will free us from fear, attachments and wounds so that we may fully respond to all that God asks of us.

We pray for deeper faith: that God will lead us to an ever deeper and more life-giving relationship with Christ, the firstborn of creation and from the dead.
