Prayers 16/17th July 2021,

Spirit of God

You are the breath of creation

The wind of change

Speak through my heart, my mind, my actions


Song “Come people of the risen King”


Forgive me my closed mind

And break down the barricades of my heart

So I can embrace new ways of being


We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Reading Psalm 38

Lord, do not rebuke me in Your wrath,
And do not punish me in Your burning anger.
For Your arrows have sunk deep into me,

And Your hand has pressed down on me.
There is no healthy part in my flesh because of Your indignation;
There is no health in my bones because of my sin.
For my guilty deeds have gone over my head;
Like a heavy burden they weigh too much for me.
My wounds grow foul and fester
Because of my foolishness.
I am bent over and greatly bowed down;
I go in mourning all day long.
For my sides are filled with burning,
And there is no healthy part in my flesh.
I feel faint and badly crushed;
I groan because of the agitation of my heart.

Let your angels be beside us at this time. In Jesus Name we pray.

Song “Your labour is not in vain”


In the depth of silence

No words are needed

We are just called to listen

To the movement of the Spirit

And in the midst of confusion

To hear your voice. Amen
