Gracious God our souls cry out to you in prayer.
We need your presence in our lives and its very difficult
to try to do everything ourselves.
Actually we know we cannot do everything and its wrong
for us to try, we pray Lord that by asking you, it will
please you more than our feeble futile attempts.
We pray Heavenly Father that you will give us patience;
patience to listen, many people do not have family and they
are burdened with decisions and need to speak to a friend.
Do not let us brush them off with indifference but spend
some time speaking with them.
We pray Lord that this week we will be able to spend
more time in prayer with you. Not a specific, on your
knees five minutes, but a real conversation with you our
friend and counsellor, relaxed and comfortable any time,
As the summer passes the children and young people go
back to school and college, we ask you Lord to help them
in all their work and we hope they keep you in their hearts
These things we ask in Jesus name Amen.
