Prayer & Reflection

Generous God, you have filled the world with good things and have made us in your image. You have given us love and creativity
and the desire to know and understand the world we live in. You love all that you have made and you enjoy our creativity. Help us to use our gifts well for the common good and the relief of suffering. Forgive us for the times when we misuse your gifts and when we act selfishly, ignoring the needs of others. Help us to be signs of your love and grace in the communities in which we live so that all people will be drawn to the fire of your love. Thank you for the example that Jesus set and help us as his followers to imitate him.

Prayer Points for September

Heavenly Father thank you for the continued easing of lockdown and for the ability to spend time with family and friends. Help us to act with great kindness to each other as we follow the guidelines that keep us safe. Help us also to know that no matter what
happens to us in this life, that through faith in Jesus, we are safe in you forever. Bless the rest of our summer and all our daily activities, and bring us through this difficult time. We do pray for those who may not have had an easy time this summer, for those struggling with continued isolation, mental health issues and loss of loved ones. Thank you for the wonderful gift of those who have
shared their time and energy in volunteering to bring comfort and practical supplies. We continue to give thanks for and to pray for all
of those in our communities whose work enables our society to function smoothly; especially giving thanks for those whose jobs put them at risk in the care sectors.

We pray for all who are suffering in body, mind and spirit. We pray for their bodies, that healing and wholeness will come to them and we pray for all whose care aids this. We pray for their minds, that you will give them wisdom for the days ahead, especially concerning their care and wellbeing. We pray for their spirit, that they will know your presence with them and our concern and prayers for them. For any who are alone and suffering, help us to see who they are.
All of these prayers we ask in Jesus' name and with great confidence. Amen
