Prayers 2nd May 2023,

I call on the Spirit of God

To meet me in my helplessness

God in my thinking

God in my speaking


Song “Let your Holy Spirit”


I call on the clarity of God

To meet me in my confusion

I call on the mercy of God

To meet me in my brokenness

And help me not to contribute

To the brokenness of the world

God in my meeting, 

God in my parting. 


We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language


John 21


After these things Jesus revealed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and He revealed Himself in this way: Simon Peter, Thomas who was called Didymus, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together. Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We are also coming with you.” They went out and got into the boat; and that night they caught nothing.


Prayers for people and situations we are concerned about; for those living with war and conflict, In Sudan, Ukraine, Russia, Yemen, Palestine, Myanmar, Rohingyas, Uighurs, Hong Kong, China, Belarus, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Syria, Iran, for our own country, for those facing climate change disasters, for those with Covid, 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 “Breathe on me”


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!
