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 freedom of spirit: that we may be liberated from the narrow vision of who we want Jesus to be and be opened to all that Jesus is and all that he desires to do for us.

We pray for grace to surrender our plans and ambitions to God, to embrace our responsibilities from today, and to follow Christ more closely.  

We pray for trust: that when we feel confused or inadequate, we may trust God to show us the right path.

We pray for all who carry the cross daily: those with health problems, those who have experienced abuse, those who have made poor choices in life and for those who assist them: that they may know God’s presence with them and be given wisdom and courage.

We pray for all who have suffer for the sake of the Gospel, particularly Christians of the Middle East, in Africa and China.
