Morning prayers 12th June 2020


 

We thank you for morning Light

And offer our praises to you

Open our hearts and our minds 

To your Spirit

And give us your presence

In our life today

 

Song “Psalm 91”

 

Prayer for Gods help

 

Loving God

Come into our confused and troubled lives

Send your Spirit

To work in us 

Realign us

So that we may know 

Your Spirit in our lives

Your joy, your peace, your Shalom

 

The Lord’s Prayer in our own language

 

Reading Acts 13v39-43

39 Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses. 40 Take care that what the prophets have said does not happen to you:

41 “‘Look, you scoffers,
    wonder and perish,
for I am going to do something in your days
    that you would never believe,
    even if someone told you.’[e]

42 As Paul and Barnabas were leaving the synagogue, the people invited them to speak further about these things on the next Sabbath. 43 When the congregation was dismissed, many of the Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who talked with them and urged them to continue in the grace of God.

Our Prayers

We pray for people and situations we are concerned about including the ongoing arrest after the murder of George Floyd, high deaths from Covid 19, the government, the lockdown easing in schools, key workers, PPE, 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 “I will wait for you”

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
