|Payer for Week Ending 26 April|
Almighty and wondrous God we come before you in humility,
We bow at your feet and ask for forgiveness for all the silly,
stupid and petty things we did last week. As always we will
try harder this coming week. We also come before in joy and
thankfulness for all the blessings we received over the week.
Such happiness was ours especially in the lovely sunshine,
happy faces and smiling children.
We pray Lord that we who enjoy health and strength, sometimes
take these things for granted, but others struggle and every day
is dark and grey. Let us see this and may we help where we can
and brighten someones day, perhaps someone who has nothing
where a smile or a word would be welcome.
We ask that you would give us sensitivity and patience when we
visit or even nurse some one who is ill, we forget Lord they are
frightened and in pain. ay your Holy presence be there, a light
in the gloom and fill the room with your grace and mercy.
During the coming week, let us "go forth in joy" to do your will
and praise your name. We ask this in Jesus name, Amen
