Prayers 8th May 2023,

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

God in my meeting, God in my parting. 


Song  “One thing I ask” 


We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language


We call on the power of God

To meet us in our helplessness

God in our thinking

God in our speaking


Reading Revelation 21 


" and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes"  


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 “My soul finds rest in God alone


God to enfold me

God to surround me

God in my sleeping

God in my waking

God in my watching

God in my hoping

God in my life

God in my soul

God in my heart
