Prayer may be something individual and private or it may be a shared expression of our concerns…our thanks, our hopes and our fears which we lay before God. Here you can ask for prayer and see who and what we are praying for, or you can join in the more formal Daily Prayer of the church.
In our prayers this week: Here you will find prayers for members of the congregation, family and friends whose wellbeing is particularly on our hearts and minds at this time. There are prayers for church activities happening this week and for situations in our community and the wider world. We hold all these things before our loving and merciful God.
This week your prayers are requested for:-
OUR CHURCH MEMBERS
For our church members who are sick or in other need.
For those moving from emergency to permanent accommodation
Our work this week, including school visits and the 3D course on Tuesday
Our worship on Wednesday and for Bible Sunday on the 27th
For those who are homeless or in insecure or unsuitable accommodation
For those coming to foodbank
For children and school staff looking forward to half term next week and those coming to visit the community orchard this week
For all who are endangered by the situation at the Syrian / Turkish border and for peace with justice
For our national political life: for those who must make difficult decisions under pressure of time and public scrutiny
For all those already suffering from the effects of climate change and for those with the power to reduce future risk
For each of us, that we may continue in hope.
Your prayer requests: You are invited to ask for a prayer at this time, whether it is for yourself or another or for a broader concern.
Daily Prayer: The Church of England has a pattern of formal services of daily prayer in the morning, the evening, and at night. If you would like to explore these services and join with the wider church in prayer, follow this link.
