In a world of great wealth
Where many are hungry
Guide us into the way of hope, justice and love
Song “Little things with great love”
Loving God, we are fragmented and conflicted,
We speak of liberation and oppress
We speak of peace and are violent
Help us to love and not hate
Even in these dark days. Amen
We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language
Reading Romans 4v20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, 21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.
We pray tonight for those in lockdown, for those affected by the stabbings in Birmingham, for kids going back to school, teaching staff, for the people of Belarus, Syria, Yemen and Hong Kong, for the unrest in the US and the chaos in the UK 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.
