Prayers 3rd January 2023,

Rise within me like the star 

And make me restless

Till I journey on

To seek my peace in you


Song “If you believe and I believe



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.


Psalm 68


Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden,
The God who is our salvation. 
20 God is to us a God of salvation;
And to God the Lord belong ways of escape from death.


The Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Our Prayers

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

For teaching staff and school children, for people dealing with Covid, for people who are lonely, for people who are hungry, for staff in hospitals and care homes, for people suffering from war particularly the children, for people imprisoned, for people suffering because of 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 I not fail you though I 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
