Prayers 19th April 2023,

In peace and in confusion

Jesus Christ is the Light of Life

He is the hope for the world


Song “Peace like a river”



Tell everyone who is anxious

Be strong and don’t be afraid

Jesus is the source of Life

He is the light of the world


We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Deuteronomy 32


He sustained him in a desert land,
    in a howling wilderness waste;
he shielded him, cared for him,
    guarded him as the apple of his eye.
11 As an eagle stirs up its nest,
    and hovers over its young;
as it spreads its wings, takes them up,
    and bears them aloft on its pinions,
12 the Lord alone guided him;
    no foreign god was with him.
13 He set him atop the heights of the land,
    and fed him with produce of the field;
he nursed him with honey from the crags,
    with oil from flinty rock;
14 curds from the herd, and milk from the flock,
    with fat of lambs and rams;
Bashan bulls and goats,
    together with the choicest wheat—
    you drank fine wine from the blood of grapes.


We pray for the people of Ukraine, and Russia, for Hong Kong, for Taiwan, for Syrians, for Yemenis, for Palestinians, for Rohingas, for Uighurs, for China, 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


Song “Perfect Love” 



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!
