Prayers 27/28th May 2021,

Holy Spirit, breath of God

Breathe on me 

Guide me, strengthen me, console me

As I come before you 


Song “Come thou Fount”


As I come before your throne

Bow down before you

May my prayers rise up to you 

And your blessings rain down upon me

Come Holy Spirit, dry bones awaken


The Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Psalm 30 


I will exalt You, Lord, for You have lifted me up,
And have not let my enemies rejoice over me.
Lord my God,
I cried to You for help, and You healed me.
Lord, You have brought up my soul from Sheol;
You have kept me alive, that I would not go down to the pit.


We pray for all those we carry in our hearts. 


For war and discord in Israel, Palestine, Columbia, India, Brazil, Russia, Ukraine, Yemen, Myanmar, the Rohingyas, the Uyghurs, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Belarus, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Syria, Iran, the US, our own country, doctors and nurses, carers, teachers, those confronting injustice, and pressing issues of climate change, for the many refugees, our families and friends and ourselves…Spirit of the Living God present with us now enter our bodies, minds and spirits and heal us of all that harms us. Let your angels be beside us at this time. In Jesus Name we pray. 


Song “Establish the work of our hands”


Put fire in our hearts 

And sends us your Spirit

To renew our hopes and dreams

To remind us that a new way is always possible

In life, in death and beyond death

God is with us. 

In Jesus Name we pray
