Prayer

We encourage everyone to develop an intentional and life‑giving routine of prayer, and to become involved in the prayer life of the Benefice. We support this by organising prayer events: quiet days, prayer days, a week of guided prayer, individual guidance on prayer, teaching on public and private prayer, and opportunities to pray regularly with and for others. There is a strong home‑group tradition within the Benefice, with meetings throughout the week for Bible study and prayer. The healing ministry plays an important part in the life of all three churches, with special services each month and regular times of prayer.

Prayers of the Month

The Lord of the empty tomb

The conqueror of gloom

Come to you.

The Lord in the garden walking

The Lord to Mary talking

Come to you.

The Lord in the Upper Room

Dispelling fear and doom

Come to you.

The Lord on the road to Emmaus

The Lord giving hope to Thomas

Come to you.

The Lord appearing on the shore

Giving us life for evermore

Come to you.

 

David Adam, The Celtic Resource Book, Church House Publishing, 2nd edition 2009

 

God of glory,

we sing your praises, this special day.

Halleluiah, risen Lord!

Halleluiah, love triumphant !

Halleluiah, Redeemer, Saviour !

May the joy that we feel

create a wave of peace and celebration

which washes away doubt and fear

and brings hope and reconciliation

to a broken world

and a new beginning for humankind.

Amen.

Rupert Bristow, 999 Prayers, Kevin Mayhew, 2015
