Prayers 18th April 2022,


The world belongs to God

The earth and all its peoples

How good and lovely it is

To join hands in unity

Love and faith come together

Justice and Peace join hands


Song “In Christ alone”


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


Job 38


Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind:

“Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?
Gird up your loins like a man,
    I will question you, and you shall declare to me.

“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
    Tell me, if you have understanding.
Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
    Or who stretched the line upon it?
On what were its bases sunk,
    or who laid its cornerstone
when the morning stars sang together
    and all the heavenly beings shouted for joy?


Our prayers for our covid, war stricken, unjust world, for the French elections, for those living with war and 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


Song “My soul is satisfied”


This is the day that God has made

We will rejoice and be glad in it

We will not offer to God offerings that count as nothing 

We will go in peace to love and serve the Lord

We will seek peace and pursue it.
