Prayer & Reflection

Colossians 3

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Prayer for the month

Gracious God, loving and kind, thank you for Jesus, who showed us by his life and actions the true meaning of love and kindness. Thank you for his example and for the many examples of true kindness that we see in our world today. Help us as we take on the mantle of kindness by your Spirit living in us. Help us to be a resource to our community especially after March 29th, whatever the outcome. Help us to be gracious to each other and work together for the future with particular concern for those who might be, or already have been, adversely affected. We pray for the High Court of Parliament and for all deliberations there, that they may be honest, transparent and wise.

Prayer points for April

We pray for the peace of the nations of the world, especially those experiencing conflict now.
We pray for all in need, that generosity will overflow and that we will share what we have. We pray for all who work for charities that seek to address the wide variety of challenges faced by humanity and we ask for guidance regarding our role in that task. Help us never to become hardened to the needs of others.

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. Bless those who care 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.
