Morning prayers 20th 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 “How can I keep from singing”

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 8v4-8
Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went. Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Messiah there. When the crowds heard Philip and saw the signs he performed, they all paid close attention to what he said. For with shrieks, impure spirits came out of many, and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed. So there was great joy in that city.

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 “The Lords my shepherd”


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
