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

Prayers this Week

For our Zimbabwe link:  Revd Father Samuel Ndawana and the family at St Bartholomew, Torwood.

For the over 50 million people who are refugees in the world today, fleeing their homes due to privation, hunger, or conflict.  May the Holy Spirit guide each of us to find creative ways to resolve conflict.  At each moment of our day may we act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with God.

For all who are victims of injustice and poverty.  May we open our arms and hearts to them, and in particular those who are suffering in our own community.

For peace in our world, particularly remembering all areas of warfare and violence.  May the Holy Spirit guide each of us to find creative ways to resolve conflict.  At each moment of our day may we act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with God.
