In peace and in confusion
Jesus Christ is the Light of Life
He is the hope for the world
Song ““Come my Way my Truth my Life”
Tell everyone who is anxious
Be strong and don’t be afraid
Jesus is the source of Life
He brings light to the world
The Lords Prayer in our own language
Reading Acts 5v12-16
12 The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade. 13 No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people. 14 Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number. 15 As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by. 16 Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by impure spirits, and all of them were healed.
We pray for anyone we know who is ill or needing our prayers.
We pray there will be someone they can turn to at this time to help them. We pray for all who are anxious. Give them your peace and calm in their hearts. Have your hand upon us, our homes and our loved ones. Be with us all we pray this night and every night. In Jesus Name Amen.
Song “This glorious Grace”
The cross we shall take it
The joy we shall share it
The gospel we shall live it
The love we shall give it
The light we shall cherish it
The evil God shall perish it. Amen
