Morning prayers 18th May 2020



We thank you God for the morning Light
And we offer our praise to you
Open our hearts and our minds 
To your Spirit
And give us your presence
In our life today

Song “Oh let the Son of God enfold you”

Prayer for Gods help

Loving God
We get it wrong
Send your Spirit
To work in us 
Realign us
So that we may know 
Your joy, your peace, your shalom

The Lord’s Prayer in your own language

Reading Acts 7v48-53
48 “However, the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands. As the prophet says:
49 “‘Heaven is my throne,
    and the earth is my footstool.What kind of house will you build for me?
says the Lord.
    Or where will my resting place be?
50 Has not my hand made all these things?’[l]
51 “You stiff-necked people! Your hearts and ears are still uncircumcised. You are just like your ancestors: You always resist the Holy Spirit! 52 Was there ever a prophet your ancestors did not persecute? They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One. And now you have betrayed and murdered him— 53 you who have received the law that was given through angels but have not obeyed it.”
Prayers
We pray for people and situations we are concerned about including the lockdown easing in schools, 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 “You don’t have to worry”

Closing Responses

This is the day that God has made
We will rejoice and be glad in it
We will not offer to God
Offerings that cost us nothing
Go in Peace
To love and serve the Lord
Amen
