Prayers 28/29th April 2021,


I call on the Spirit of God

To meet me in my helplessness

God in my thinking

God in my speaking


Song “Holy Spirit, Living Breath”


I call on the clarity of God

To meet me in my confusion

I call on the mercy of God

To meet me in my brokenness

And help me not to contribute

To the brokenness of the world

God in my meeting, 

God in my parting. 


The Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Reading Revelation 21 

 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea.And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among the people, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”


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




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!
