Morning prayers 21st 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 “This is the day”

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 8v14-17
14 When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to Samaria. 15 When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, 16 because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.

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 “Waymaker”

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
