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 

You in our lives

Your joy, your peace, your Shalom

 

The Lord’s Prayer in our own language

 

Reading Acts 23

 

There was a great uproar, and some of the teachers of the law who were Pharisees stood up and argued vigorously. “We find nothing wrong with this man,” they said. “What if a spirit or an angel has spoken to him?” 10 The dispute became so violent that the commander was afraid Paul would be torn to pieces by them. He ordered the troops to go down and take him away from them by force and bring him into the barracks.

11 The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, “Take courage! As you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must also testify in Rome.”

Our Prayers

We pray for people and situations we are concerned about including the continuing deaths from Covid 19, global warming, the ongoing unrest in Hong Kong and Syria, the rise of fascism, the government, The Rohinga Muslims, Muslims being persecuted in China, key workers, adequate PPE, and protection for Black and Asian 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

 

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
