Prayers 29th May 2023,


Creator God I come before you 

And seek your peace

Let me be still in your presence

The Holy One who is here


Song “Holy Spirit”


As I come before your throne

Bow down before you

May my prayers rise up to you 

And your blessings rain down upon me


We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Psalm 28


Do not drag me away with the wicked
And with those who practice injustice,
Who speak peace with their neighbours,
While evil is in their hearts.
Give back to them according to their work and according to the evil of their practices;
Give back to them according to the work of their hands;
Repay them what is due them.
Because they do not regard the works of the Lord
Nor the deeds of His hands,
He will tear them down and not build them up.


We pray for all those we know who need our help and prayers ….and the many others we carry in our hearts. 


We pray for all those we know who need our help and prayers ….and the many others we carry in our hearts…for sustainable action on climate change, for people crossing in small boats, for Sudan, the Ukraine, Russia, Yemen, Syria, Palestine, Myanmar, the Rohingyas, the Uighurs, for Hong Kong, for China, Belarus, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran, Afghanistan, for our own country, for those with Covid, for doctors and nurses, carers, for those on strike, for refugees and the homeless and those hungry, and tormented. 

Spirit of the Living God present with us now enter our bodies, minds and spirits and heal us of all that harms us. Let your angels be beside us at this time. In Jesus Name we pray. 


Song “Lead kindly Light”


Put fire in our hearts 

And sends us your Spirit

To renew our hopes and dreams

To remind us that a new way is always possible

In life, in death and beyond death

God is with us. 

In Jesus Name we pray
