Prayers 6th July 2023,

For the light of the sun on my face

I humbly thank you

And offer my praise to you

Open my heart and my mind 

Give me your presence

In the centre of my being today


Song “From the breaking of the dawn


Loving God move us to comfort those we encounter.

Those held captive by their bodies or minds

Those facing hatred and intolerance

For those fleeing for their lives

For strangers in our lands 

For those on dangerous journeys 

For those in distress and without income

Melt our hard hearts to create welcome, justice and healing 



The Lord’s Prayer in our own language


Reading Psalm 35

May those shout for joy and rejoice, who take delight in my vindication;
And may they say continually, “The Lord be exalted,
Who delights in the prosperity of His servant.”
28 And my tongue shall proclaim Your righteousness
And Your praise all day long.


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

For France, the families of refugees killed in the Mediterranean, for Ukraine and Russia, for Israel and Palestine, Yemen, Myanmar, the Rohingyas, the Uyghurs, Hong Kong, Belarus, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Syria, Iran, the US, our own country, for doctors and nurses, carers, teachers, those confronting injustice, and pressing issues of climate change, for those who are distraught, for the many refugees, 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 “I shall not want”

This is the day that God has made

I will rejoice and be glad in it

I will not offer to God

Offerings that cost me nothing

I will go in Peace

To love and serve the Lord
