Prayers 18th April 2023,

When we are despairing and see no way ahead

Roll back the stone!

When we are frightened and fear for our life

Roll back the stone!

When we are hungry, thirsty and need shelter

Roll back the stone!

When we need a miracle to change our lives

Roll back the stone! 


Song “My only hope is you”

Make me a clean heart 

And renew a right Spirit within me

Give me again your joy


We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Deuteronomy 32


Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak;

    let the earth hear the words of my mouth.

2 May my teaching drop like the rain,

    my speech condense like the dew;

like gentle rain on grass,

    like showers on new growth.

3 For I will proclaim the name of the Lord;

    ascribe greatness to our God!

We pray for the people of Ukraine, and Russia, for Hong Kong, for Taiwan, for China, for Syrians, for Yemenis, for Palestinians, for Rohingas, for Uighurs, for the US ; For those suffering from flooding, drought earthquakes, and cyclones due to climate change, for the millions of refugees, for homeless people, for those who are hungry, thirsty or in prison, for the terrified and deranged; for those on strike, for doctors nurses, teachers and for the government to do the best for its people and not the worst; for our children, grandchildren and a better future for us all. Amen

May the God who shakes heaven and earth

Whom death could not contain

Who lives to disturb and heal us

Bless us with power to go forth

and be the good news. Amen
