Reflections on the Christian journey based on the lectionary gospel texts
God we come to you
With our different experiences
And we come to cast our cares
We say the Lords prayer in our own language
I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from?My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber;indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand;the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life;the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Song "I lift mine eyes"
We pray for people and situations
Take all these names we have prayed for. Answer these prayers in your own way in your own time. We pray for healing enlightening wisdom and peace. Amen
Song "Stay with God"
We depart in Peace and Love.
Rest in the assurance that God is in charge
And nothing can operate us from His love.
