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 .
