Morning prayers 16th April 2020

If the Lords disciples keep silent
These very stones would shout aloud
God open our lips
And our mouths shall show forth your praise

Song “It is well with my soul”

Prayer for Gods help

Make me a clean heart 
And renew a right Spirit within me
Give us again our joy

The Lord’s Prayer in your own language

Reading John 21 v 15-17
15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”
“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”
16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”
17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.
Prayers for people and situations we are concerned about.

Ending with…May they not fail you, nor we fail them Amen

A Song “In a byre near Bethlehem”

Closing Responses

When we are despairing and see no way ahead
Roll back the stone!
When we are frightened and fear for our life
Roll back the stone!
When we are hungry, thirsty and need shelter
Roll back the stone!
When we need a miracle to change our lives
Roll back the stone!
