Holy Week Wednesday 13th April 2022,

Loving God we remember today Judas

Who planned to betray Jesus

We know sadly we all carry within ourselves

The capacity to betray. 

Help us to acknowledge this 

recognise it and deal with it. Amen 


Song “All glory Lord and honour”


Make me a clean heart 

And renew a right Spirit within me

Give us again our joy


We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Reading John 13


21 After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, “Very truly I tell you, one of you is going to betray me.”

Our prayers for our world, for the French elections, for those in conflict, Ukraine, Russia, Yemen, Palestine, Myanmar, Rohingyas, Uighurs, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Belarus, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Syria, Iran, for our own country, for those facing climate change, for doctors and nurses, carers, teachers, for those confronting injustice, for refugees and the homeless, our families and friends and ourselves…

May God’s hand be upon us, your angels protect us and the Holy Spirit work in and around us. Amen


A Song “Behold the Lamb”


God of all that gives life

Keep us and our loved ones safe this day we pray

Keep evil from without and within

And move us on to our own resurrection. Amen
