Prayers 1st March 2022,

Rise within me like the star 

And make me restless

Till I journey on

To seek my peace in you


Song “Senzenina”



A candle is lit.


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 80


O God, enthroned above the cherubim,
    display your radiant glory
    to Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh.
Show us your mighty power.
    Come to rescue us!


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

For the people of Ukraine, Russia, Canada, Hong Kong, Syria, Belarus, Yemen, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Taiwan, for staff dealing with Covid, for people who are lonely, for people who are hungry, for people imprisoned, for people suffering from climate change, for the vulnerable and those sick and dying, for the homeless, for asylum seekers and refugees, for governments and multinationals because we must give a better future to our children and grandchildren.  

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
