Prayers 18th July 2023,

Spirit of God

You are the breath of creation

The wind of change

Speak through my heart, my mind, my actions


Song “There is a hope”


Forgive me my closed mind

And break down the barricades of my heart

So I can embrace new ways of being


We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Reading Psalm 37

I have seen a wicked, violent person
Spreading himself like a luxuriant tree in its native soil.
36 Then he passed away, and behold, he was no more;
I searched for him, but he could not be found.
37 Observe the blameless person, and look at the upright;
For the person of peace will have a future.
38 But wrongdoers will altogether be destroyed;
The future of the wicked will be eliminated.
39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
He is their strength in time of trouble.
40 The Lord helps them and rescues them;
He rescues them from the wicked and saves them,
Because they take refuge in Him.


We pray for all those we know who need our help and prayers who we carry in our hearts today. 

For the families of refugees drowned in the Mediterranean, for Ukraine and Russia, for Israel and Palestine, Sudan, Yemen, Hong Kong, China, Syria, our own country, for those confronting injustice, and pressing issues of climate change, for those who are hungry, homeless, distraught, for the many refugees throughout the world, for those on strike, for the homeless, our families and friends and ourselves…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 “In the fields of the Lord”


In the depth of silence

No words are needed

We are just called to listen

To the movement of the Spirit

And in the midst of confusion

To hear your voice. Amen
