Morning prayers 4th May 2020




If the Lords disciples keep silent
These very stones would shout aloud
God open our lips
And our mouths shall show forth your praise

Song “New Every morning”

Prayer for Gods help

Make me a clean heart 
And renew a right Spirit within me
Give us again our joy

The Lord’s Prayer in your own language

Reading Acts 4v10-12
Let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that [g]by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—[h]by [i]this name this man stands here before you in good health. 11 [j]He is the stone which was rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief corner stone. 12 And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among people by which we must be saved.”

Intercessions for people and situations we are concerned about including key workers, the ongoing lack of PPE in hospitals and care homes and everywhere, and protection for BME people, care for those who are alone and those suffering with depression.

Ending with…May they not fail you, nor we fail them Amen

Song “My dwelling place”


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!
