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 in our lives

Your joy, your peace, your Shalom

 

The Lord’s Prayer in our own language

 

Reading Acts 15

36 After some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us return and visit the brethren in every city in which we proclaimed the word of the Lord, and see how they are.” 37 Barnabas wanted to take John, called Mark, along with them also. 38 But Paul kept insisting that they should not take him along who had deserted them [u]in Pamphylia and had not gone with them to the work. 39 And there occurred such a sharp disagreement that they separated from one another, and Barnabas took Mark with him and sailed away to Cyprus. 40 But Paul chose Silas and left, being committed by the brethren to the grace of the Lord. 41 And he was traveling through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches.

 

Our Prayers

We pray for people and situations we are concerned about including the ongoing unrest after the murder of George Floyd and now other deaths, the continuing deaths from Covid 19, the government, the lockdown easing in schools, key workers, PPE, and protection for BME people, people on low or no incomes, those with underlying health conditions and those over 60, 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 “In the beginning”

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

We will go in Peace

To love and serve the Lord

Amen
