Weekly Prayer
Prayer 14 ; 21st April 2013 PDF Print E-mail

              

 

              Our Father in Heaven hear us as we pray to you.

       We have tried so hard this last week but we know we have

              fallen down at some point and for this we are sorry.

 

       We pray Lord that all the small things that distress and tempt

        us, you will use to strengthen us, and we will be all the

                 better for coming through those temptations.

 

       By thought alone we cannot change one single part of Gods

       plan for us. He knows best and we must follow him doing as

                he asks us, whither we see the end result or not.

 

HOW GREAT IS OUR LORD AND HOW MIGHTY ARE HIS WORKS

 

         We pray that we may be able to step forward to meet each

         new day strong in the knowledge that God is by our side and

            never asks us to do anything we are not capable of doing.

 

       So in praying we ask for his company as we go about our

       daily lives and that he will guide and bless us in all we do

                      in his name for Jesus sake  Amen.

 

 

 

 
Prayer 13; 14th April 2013 PDF Print E-mail

                             

 Dearest Lord we know that our prayers are a joy to you

                  and that you long to hear from us. 

  You delight in the relationship that we have with you

                  and this strengthens our prayers.

 

We want to speak with you so much, and we know how

            eager you are to hear our grateful thanks

      and our words of prayer for everything around us .

 

We need you Lord as our helper, and Redeemer as

    sometimes no matter how hard we try, we fail.

 

We fail because we are human and find it hard to see

         the plan you have for us, but you willingly,

              take our hand and help us start again .

 

   Dearest Lord we thank you for never forsaking us and

for giving us Jesus in whose name we bring these prayers.

Amen

 
Prayer 12; 7th April 2013 PDF Print E-mail

                   

 

We come before you Heavenly Father with loving hearts

           to ask your help in the coming weeks.

We remember well “ ask and you will receive” so please

   Father we pray that you will give  us help, to do your

                         work here on earth .

 

When we ask in prayer for help, it’s a form of worship and

by speaking to you we are ensuring that you know our daily

      thoughts and we are indeed worshipping you.

 

We are never alone when we pray because you are with us

Lord, and you fill us with the Holy Spirit, it’s a powerful

      time and we can do so much, all in your name.

 

We must never forget Lord, the significance of small things,

A simple smile-- a word of encouragement -----a handshake

                       a listening ear-------a hug

These small things done in you name great Redeemer, do make

                  a difference to one persons life

 

As we bring our prayers before you Father we bring them

through Jesus your beloved son.      Amen

                         EASTER DAY

     ALLELUIA                                ALLELUIA

                           Christ is Risen

 

Oh God our Father thank you for this wondrous Easter Day

   when Jesus your own beloved son rose from the tomb.

     Alleluia he lives, he has conquered death and sin.

 

He sets us free with his Holy Blood, that was spilled for us

  on that cruel cross, not just for some of us but ALL of us.

   We thank you Father and joyfully proclaim your  name.

 

We pray that from the darkness of the cross, to the brightness

          Of a glorious new beginning, we can celebrate

           with you God and the Heavenly Host above.

 

Let us raise our voices high, singing the praise of God our

Redeemer, and unto him give All Glory Laud and Honour

 

Let us now walk in the light of Easter, refreshed and renewed

     ready to  bring Gods love to everyone we meet.

 

                       In Jesus name      Amen

 
Palm Sunday Prayer ; 24th march 2013 PDF Print E-mail

                      Palm Sunday 

 

               Its here ! the day of jubilation,

  when crowds and shouts were heard all around.

 

We pray Gracious God that as we celebrate PALM SUNDAY

we realise what it means to us. The cries that day were Hosanna

Hosanna, glory to the Highest !  Jesus was entering Jerusalem

         in triumph, albeit on  a donkey covered in coats.

 

We know that the crowds believed that Jesus was the

Messiah come to free them from Roman oppression.

 

All to soon the mood  changed and the crowd were against Him.

 

We pray that we can change how we feel, as sometimes

             we are like that crowd.

    We turn our back on you, we speak out of turn,

we do not honour you, please merciful God forgive us

             as we are weak and foolish.

 

 Yes by all means let us celebrate Palm Sunday,

but in praying to you we will never forget the horror

of what is to follow before we reach that wonderful

      glorious day of the Resurrection

 

Through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour  Amen.

 

 

 

 

               

 
Prayer 11 17th March 2013 PDF Print E-mail

   

We come before you Almighty God on this 5th Sunday

       of Lent, to praise and worship you.

 

We are preparing for our glorious Easter season and in this

we remember John the Baptist, who came to prepare the way

                       for Jesus.

 

 How pleased and proud he was when he baptised Jesus,

surely it was one of the most wonderful moments of his life!

 

May we prepare for the next few weeks Lord by worshiping

       

                       just a little more deeply    

                   just a little bit more fervently    

                     just a little bit more devoutly

                  just a little bit more meaningfully .

 

We pray that we will have the strength to walk with you

                    On your road to Calvary,

         as you walk with us every day of our lives.

 

We bring these prayers to you Father through Jesus your beloved son

Amen

 
Prayer 10; 10th March 2013 PDF Print E-mail

                   Let there be Light

 

As we pray together today let us remember that Jesus

      is the light of the world, and because of this

           we are never left in darkness.

 

    Jesus light helps us to see into the dark corners

  where evil lurks.   In praying to you, God, we ask for

help when we find ourselves in these dark places.

     Only you can help and if we grasp your hand,

         soon we will come into the sunshine.

 

   We pray for all who have not seen the light

         and live without it Merciful Father

we strive to help as you gather them into the fold.

 

      Jesus said I am the Way the Truth and the Life.

How wonderful to know that Jesus is always there

         for us and is the beacon we follow.

.

           We pray that we never let him down.

 He will always be there to pick us up when we fall,

      if we call on him and ask for forgiveness.

              He will show us the way.

 

These prayers come through Jesus our Lord    Amen

 
Weekly Prayer 9; March2013 5th PDF Print E-mail

                         Prayer 9

   Oh Lord our Heavenly Father look down on us with love as we

     draw closer to you. bringing our prayers in humble adoration.

To day we think of all those who do not know your goodness and Love

                  who have not heard your name,

        who do not realise that Jesus died for our sins,

          we pray that they may come to you soon and

           join in the Worldwide Christian Fellowship.

 

Be with the lonely we pray Father, because most times they feel

          as if they are worthless  and this is not the case.

              Let us try to bring them in to our circle

where love and friendship abide with you at the centre.

 

                   In our prayers we remember the bereaved.

                The weight of a sorrowing heart is enormous,

            and we cannot ask those suffering to carry that alone.

     With your guidance Lord let us help to ease the pain and sorrow

    By being there, ready with the quiet word and the comforting arm.

 

          We never forget those who are ill we pray you will bless them.

             Sometimes the illness is short lived and recovery is swift

                                for this we thank you. 

                   Sometimes the illness takes a little time longer

 our prayers are more focused and what joy when the patient recovers.

                  However sometimes no recovery is possible

           and we wait numbly going over everything in our hearts.

                     That’s when our faith holds us steady

                   and we rely on your strength to sustain us.

          We know you will never fail us and we will not falter.

                                  Thank you Father.

 

                   We bring these prayers through Jesus,    Amen .
