Prayers 22nd March 2021,


God our creator who goes before us

You draw us forward in faith

Like a pillar of fire across desert wastes

A rock of assurance

As we journey 

Speak to us with your words of comfort and wisdom.


Prayer of confession

God of love and forgiveness

Save us by your tenderness

From each deed that is destructive

From each act that grieves you

From each thought that is careless

From each idea that is unloving

From each word that hurts.

Help us to face up to your call on our lives, by creating love and 

goodness, community, society where it has been broken. In Jesus Name, Amen.


The Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Psalm 7v1-5


O Lord my God, in You I have taken refuge;
Save me from all those who pursue me, and rescue me,
Or he will tear my soul like a lion,
Dragging me away, while there is no one to rescue me.

O Lord my God, if I have done this,
If there is injustice in my hands,
If I have done evil to my friend,
Or have plundered my enemy for no reason,
Let the enemy pursue my soul and overtake it;
And let him trample my life to the ground
And lay my glory in the dust. 


Our prayers for our Covid world, and for Yemen, Myanmar, China, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Belarus, Russia, US, UK, UAE, Ethiopia, Syria, Iran, Brazil, our own country, climate change, doctors and nurses, carers, teachers, those confronting injustice, our families and friends and ourselves…

May God’s hand be upon us, your angels protect us and the Holy Spirit work in and around us. Amen 


Song “Establish the work of your hands”




Loving God help us to follow you

Into a place of quietness,

Where we may face beasts and wilderness

But we will know the presence of angels 

Even in the desert times. Amen.
