Spirit of God
You are the breath of creation
The wind of change
Speak through our thoughts and dreams tonight
Song “Bow down”
Forgive me my closed mind
And break down the barricades of my heart
So I can embrace new ways of being
We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language
Reading Romans 1
I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong, that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith. I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, that I planned many times to come to you (but have been prevented from doing so until now) in order that I might have a harvest among you, just as I have had among the other Gentiles. I am obligated both to Greeks and non-Greeks, both to the wise and the foolish.
We pray tonight for those in lockdown, for those who have not got the grades they needed for university, for the people of Belarus and all those we know who need our help and prayers who we carry in our hearts tonight.
Spirit of the Living God present with us now enter their bodies, minds and spirits and heal them of all that harms them. Let your angels be beside them at this time and protect them. In Jesus Name we pray.
In the depth of silence
No words are needed
We are just called to listen
To the movement of the Spirit
And in the midst of confusion
To hear your voice.
