Prayer & Reflection

O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?

Psalm 139 : 1 – 6 The NIV Bible

Prayer for the Month.

Lord Jesus Christ, at a time of increasing debate about the divisions in our society we pray for those who strive to bring peace, breaking down barriers between peoples and challenging long held prejudices. Encourage us to overcome the fears and suspicions that divide us. Rescue us from all that keeps us apart, and put a new spirit within us – a spirit of love and openness, acceptance and understanding, healing and reconciliation. May the peace we pray for, begin here and now, in our hearts, so that we become instruments of your peace, bringing healing to the world around us. Inspire in us a deeper understanding of the meaning of your sacrifice on the cross so that we may be filled with the love you have for your world and show that love in all our actions.
In Jesus name we pray. Amen
