Prayer & Reflection

Psalm 121

“I lift up my eyes to the hills; from where is my help to come? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. He will not suffer your foot to stumble; he who watches over you will not sleep. Behold, he who keeps watch over Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord himself watches over you; the Lord is your shade at your right hand, so that the sun shall not strike you by day, neither the moon by night. The Lord shall keep you from all evil; it is he who shall keep your soul. The Lord shall keep watch over your going out and your coming in, from this time forth for evermore.”

Prayer for the month

Almighty God, Abba, Father, thank you that your word is true and firm and your faithfulness and trustworthiness lasts throughout the ages. Thank you that this is as firm now as ever it was. Thank you that, as we pray to you, you hear us. Thank you that you have called us to reflect and make real your glory and presence in our world. We admit that, often, it is hard to be like you and reflect your goodness to the people we live and work with. We ask your forgiveness for the times we have not achieved this and your strength and insight as we keep moving forward and as we keep working at loving our world and neighbours as you do.

Prayer points for February

In this new year we pray for ourselves, our loved ones and all people that we may fulfil both your purposes for us and our true potential. For those who have before them a bright future we pray for your blessing and guidance. For all who can’t see the way ahead we pray light in the darkness. For those who are lonely we pray companionship and for those who are experiencing loss we pray comfort. We all pray for wisdom for the days ahead that we will make good decisions. Strengthen our faith in you and our determination to serve each other for the common good. We pray for our nation and the work of Parliament as they make decisions. May the needs of people be more important that party politics. We pray for the Queen and the royal family as they negotiate the difficulties that are before them.

Loving God, we pray for homes and families, especially those affected by fire and flooding throughout the world. Bless the work of recovery and restoration. We pray for all who are ill in any way; that with our support and loving concern they may find healing in body, mental strength and wisdom to navigate the days ahead and a sense of your presence and love for them as well as our love and prayers for them. Bless those who care for them. In Jesus name we pray all of these prayers. Amen.
