Morning prayers 5th 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 “Let your Holy Spirit”



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 4v18-22
18 Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! 20 As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”
21 After further threats they let them go. They could not decide how to punish them, because all the people were praising God for what had happened. 22 For the man who was miraculously healed was over forty years old.

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 and ensuring food is reaching the vulnerable.

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

Song “Breathe on me”

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!
