Morning prayers 15th May 2020



We thank you for the morning Light
We offer our praise to you
Open our hearts and our minds 
To your Spirit

Song “Go tell everyone”


Prayer for Gods help

Loving God
We get it wrong
So work in us 
And realign us
So that we may know 
Your joy, your peace, your shalom

The Lord’s Prayer in your own language

Reading Acts 6v11-15
11 Then they secretly persuaded some men to say, “We have heard Stephen speak blasphemous words against Moses and against God.”
12 So they stirred up the people and the elders and the teachers of the law. They seized Stephen and brought him before the Sanhedrin. 13 They produced false witnesses, who testified, “This fellow never stops speaking against this holy place and against the law. 14 For we have heard him say that this Jesus of Nazareth will destroy this place and change the customs Moses handed down to us.”
15 All who were sitting in the Sanhedrin looked intently at Stephen, and they saw that his face was like the face of an angel.

Prayers
We pray for people and situations we are concerned about including the lockdown easing, key workers, the ongoing lack of PPE in hospitals, care homes and everywhere, and protection for BME people, care for those who are alone and those suffering with depression and ensuring food is reaching the vulnerable.

Ending with…May we not fail them Amen

Song “This little light of mine”


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!
