Morning prayers 19th 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 “Remedy”

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 7v54-60
54 When the members of the Sanhedrin heard this, they were furious and gnashed their teeth at him. 55 But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. 56 “Look,” he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”
57 At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him,58 dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul.
59 While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” 60 Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep.

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 “I believe”


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
