Prayer & Reflection

Romans 8: 38-39

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord”.

Prayer for the month

Generous God, thank you for the message and reality of Easter, that in Jesus Christ death is conquered and you have offered us the gift of new life in him. Help us to accept this free gift so that we can know that we are safe in you, both in this world and in the next; in life and in physical death. Thank you that death is not the end for those who believe in Jesus. Thank you that nothing can separate us from you and from your love. Help us to readily share this good news in word and action with all we meet. Amen.

Prayer points for May

We continue to pray for all who are affected by the Coronavirus; for all who are ill, for those who are being shielded due to their vulnerabilities and for all whose livelihoods are affected by the economic impact of the crisis. We pray for all who are carers and medical practitioners and for those seeking a solution in the scientific community. We pray for our government, that you will guide them to wise decisions. Give them the wisdom and strength they need to bring stability to our nation.

Loving God, we pray for our homes and families. We pray especially for those who are fearful and for those dealing with the practical and emotional aspects of self-isolation. Give us all the mental strength and wisdom to navigate the days ahead. We pray for all who live in care homes and for their families. Give them peace in the midst of their concern.

We pray for all who grieve the loss of loved ones, whether recently or in the past, and we ask for your comfort and peace. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
