Morning prayers 30th 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 “Every praise is to our God”

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 Acts 3v11-16
11 While the man held on to Peter and John, all the people were astonished and came running to them in the place called Solomon’s Colonnade. 12 When Peter saw this, he said to them: “Fellow Israelites, why does this surprise you? Why do you stare at us as if by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk?13 The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus. You handed him over to be killed, and you disowned him before Pilate, though he had decided to let him go. 14 You disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you. 15 You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this. 16 By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see.

Prayers for people and situations we are concerned about including the ongoing lack of PPE in hospitals and care homes and everywhere and protection for BME peo .

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

Song “1000 reasons”

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!
