Prayers 22nd April 2021,

We call on the power of God

To meet us in our helplessness

God in our thinking

God in our speaking


Song “Be still”


We call on the clarity of God

To meet us in our confusion

We call on the mercy of God

To meet us in our brokenness

God in our meeting, 

God in our parting. 


The Lord’s Prayer in your own language


Reading Isaiah 65

Behold, it is written before Me:
I will not keep silent, but I will repay;
I will even repay into their laps,
Both your own wrongdoings and the wrongdoings of your fathers together,” says the Lord.
“Because they have burned incense on the mountains
And scorned Me on the hills,
Therefore I will measure their former work into their laps.”


Prayers for people and situations we are concerned about.


For India, Brazil, Russia, Ukraine, Yemen, Myanmar, the Rohingyas, the Uighurs, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Belarus, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Syria, Iran, the US, 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 Spirit work in and around us. Amen


Song “The grace of God”



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!
