Prayer & Reflection

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil,
for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Prayer for the month

Almighty God, Abba, Father, thank you that you have promised, in your word, to those who trust in you, that you will be with us in every circumstance, even as we face death itself. Give us patience, wisdom, grace and courage over the coming days so that, whatever happens we will remain firm in your love. Despite our differing positions on Brexit, we ask that our minds and hearts will be fixed on standing together, being there for and supporting each other and serving our neighbour for the common good. Give us generous spirits and fill us with your peace and certainty.

We pray for all in need, that generosity will overflow and that we will share what we have.

Loving God, we pray for our homes and families. We pray especially for those who are lonely; that we may see who they are and offer the hand of friendship. We pray for all who are suffering 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.

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 all these prayers. Amen.
