Prayer of the Week 17 April 2022

Amazing God, we praise you that from the silence of an empty tomb, a message of joy has spread around the world.
From the brutality of a death on the cross, healing love has touched the earth.
We pray earnestly for this healing love to touch Ukraine.
From the initial uncertainty of the first disciples, your church has grown and reached out in faith to all.
Thank you for Easter, thank you for life, thank you for your underserved Grace.

Prayer of the Week 10 April 2022

Wonderful God, thank you that you meet us right here
where we are sitting in the ordinary stuff and activities of this day.
As we journey through Holy Week, may we recognise you in Christ Jesus,
be empowered to live like him to live into the preciousness of the life that you sustain in us.

Prayer of the Week 3 April2022

Gracious and life giving God, you who make all things new by your saving and creative love,
you who redeem the lives of your servants and reach out to those who are lost, come to us by your spirit we pray.
Sprinkle within our hearts the fragrance of your living word so that we may produce scents that are pleasing to you.
Reveal to us the things that you want us to see and strengthen us as we walk as pilgrims through this world.
We ask this humbly in Jesus’ name.

Prayer of the Week 27 March 2022

Loving God, we thank you for the precious gift of love,
which we receive from our Mothers, family and friends.
We give you thanks for the ability to care, nurture and love, which you have set deep within us.
Help us to use these gifts for the good of our families and friends
and to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, the one who loves us so much that he gave his life for us.

Prayer of the Week 20 March 2022

God, Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer, you nurture and nourish the soil of our lives,
you watch over us patiently and expectantly, you fill us with the nutrients we need in order to grow,
and you rejoice when we too, nurture, protect and watch over others – in your name.

Prayer of the Week 13 March 2022

The house of God is our home, and in our hearts, we hold and cherish it,
through barren lands, through disappointment, through trouble within us and around us.
Through all our wandering in the wilderness of emptiness and distraction,
we are drawn here to worship and praise God, who makes a home with us,
whose presence fills and sustain us.
