Prayers 15/16th April 2021,

In peace and in confusion

Jesus Christ is the Light of Life

He is the hope for the world


Song “In resurrexit tua”


Tell everyone who is anxious

Be strong and don’t be afraid

Jesus is the source of Life

He brings light to the world


The Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Reading Deuteronomy 32


    You grew fat, bloated, and gorged!
He abandoned God who made him,
    and scoffed at the Rock of his salvation.
16 They made him jealous with strange gods,
    with abhorrent things they provoked him.
17 They sacrificed to demons, not God,
    to deities they had never known,
to new ones recently arrived,
    whom your ancestors had not feared.
18 You were unmindful of the Rock that bore you;[g]
    you forgot the God who gave you birth.


Prayers for people and situations we are concerned about.


For Yemen, Myanmar, the Rohingyas, the Uighurs, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Belarus, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Syria, Iran, 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


Ending with…May we not fail them Amen


A Song ““When I survey”


Closing Responses


When we are despairing and see no way ahead

Roll back the stone!

When we are frightened and fear for our life

Roll back the stone!

When we are hungry, thirsty and need shelter

Roll back the stone!

When we need a miracle to change our lives

Roll back the stone!
