For morning Light

And give me your presence

Prayer for Gods help

 

Loving God

Come into my confused and troubled life

And send your Spirit

To work in me 

To realign me

So that I may know 

You in my life

Your joy, your peace, your Shalom

 

The Lord’s Prayer in our own language

 

Reading Acts 27

 

13 When a gentle south wind began to blow, they saw their opportunity; so they weighed anchor and sailed along the shore of Crete. 14 Before very long, a wind of hurricane force, called the Northeaster, swept down from the island. 15 The ship was caught by the storm and could not head into the wind; so we gave way to it and were driven along. 16 As we passed to the lee of a small island called Cauda, we were hardly able to make the lifeboat secure, 17 so the men hoisted it aboard. Then they passed ropes under the ship itself to hold it together. Because they were afraid they would run agroundon the sandbars of Syrtis, they lowered the sea anchor[b] and let the ship be driven along. 18 We took such a violent battering from the storm that the next day they began to throw the cargo overboard. 19 On the third day, they threw the ship’s tackle overboard with their own hands. 20 When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days and the storm continued raging, we finally gave up all hope of being saved.

 

 

Our Prayers

We pray for people and situations we are concerned about including protection from strange weather, lockdowns, exam chaos, desperate people crossing the sea in dinghies, continuing deaths from Covid 19, the ongoing unrest in Belarus, Hong Kong and Syria, the rise of fascism, the government, the Rohinga Muslims, Muslims being persecuted in China, protection for key workers and adequate PPE, protection for Black and Asian people, for people on low or no incomes, for those with underlying health conditions and those over 60, care for those who are alone and those suffering with depression, protection for asylum seekers and refugees and ensuring that food is reaching the vulnerable and global warming. 

May we not fail you. Amen

 

Closing Responses

 

This is the day that God has made

I will rejoice and be glad in it

I will not offer to God

Offerings that cost me nothing

I will go in Peace

To love and serve the Lord

Amen

讀法27

 

13当一個溫柔嘅南風開始吹,佢哋睇到咗佢哋嘅機會所以佢哋稱錨,沿着克里特海岸航行。 14不久,一股名為徜徉東北人徜徉的颶風由島上刮落嚟。 十五船被暴風雨捕獲,無法進入風中所以我讓位畀它,並揸車沿。 16当我經過一個叫考达嘅小島嘅李,好難畀救生艇安全,17,所以男人們將吊上船。 然後,佢哋透過繩索下船本身舉行它。 因為佢哋西蒂斯嘅沙洲上擱淺,所以佢哋放下了海錨,讓船沿着船開走。 18我們從暴風雨中猛烈地襲擊了他們,第二天他們開始把貨物扔到船上。 第三天,佢哋用手將船嘅滑輪扔到船上。 20当太陽同星星都出現好多日,暴風雨繼續肆虐時,終於放棄所有被拯救嘅希望。

 

嘅祈禱。
