Prayers 2nd January 2023,

Come Holy God

Give me your peace 

Send your Spirit

To heal and help me

So I can build a world

Of love and justice

And care for your earth. Amen


Song “Bread of Life”


A candle is lit.


We 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 73


23 I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. 

24 You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. 

25 Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. 


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

For Afghanistan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Belarus, Ukraine, Syria, Ethiopia, for people who are lonely, for staff in hospitals and care homes, for people suffering from war, for people in prisoned, for people suffering because of climate change, for the vulnerable in this Covid time and those sick and dying, for the homeless in our country and those far from home, for our government to rule justly, for asylum seekers and refugees the world over, and finally for our children and grandchildren who we must give a better future. In Jesus name we pray, 

May we not fail you though we face great dangers. 

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


Take us to Bethlehem

House of bread

Where the empty are filled

The poor find riches

And the rich recognise their poverty

Where all kneel, worship 

And are fed.
