Prayers 2nd February 2022,

Rise within me like the star 

And make me restless

Till I journey on

To seek my peace in you


A candle is lit.


Song “In Christ alone”


I light a candle for light, sending

prayers high into the inky heavens and

dreams deep into our human soul.


We light a candle for light. May it light our way.


The Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Psalm 77

Indeed, God will dwell there forever.

17 The chariots of God are myriads, 

thousands upon thousands;

The Lord is among them as at Sinai, 

in holiness.
18 You have
 ascended on high, 

You have led captive Your captives;
You have received gifts among people,
Even among the rebellious as well, that the God may dwell there.

We pray for people and situations that are on our heart today ...

For Ukraine, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Syria, Belarus, Sudan, Yemen, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Taiwan, for teaching staff, for hospital staff dealing with Covid, for people who are lonely, for people who are hungry, for staff in care homes, for people suffering from war, for people imprisoned for, for people suffering from climate change, for the vulnerable and those sick and dying, for the homeless, for asylum seekers and refugees, for our government to make the right decisions, and finally for the children who we must give a better future.  

May we not fail you though we face great dangers. 

Give me your peace, your wisdom and your strength. Amen


When the star in the sky has gone

And the wise men have gone back to their homes

The real work of Christmas begins

To find the lost, heal the broken, feed the hungry and release the prisoner. Amen
