Our Diocesan Prayer.
Heavenly Father, we embrace Your call for us to make disciples, to be witnesses and to grow leaders. Give us the eyes to see Your vision, ears to hear the prompting of Your Spirit and courage to follow in the footsteps of your Son, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. AMEN
A Prayer for Advent starting 3rd December
Almighty God,give us grace to cast away the works of darkness and to put on the armour of light,now in the time of this mortal life,in which your Son Jesus Christ came to us in great humility;that on the last day,when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge the living and the dead,we may rise to the life immortal;through him who is alive and reigns with you,in the unity of the Holy Spirit,one God, now and for ever; Amen.
Prayers for November 19th
Almighty Father, whose will is to restore all things in your beloved Son Jesus, the King of all:
govern the hearts and minds of those in authority, and bring the families of the nations,
divided and torn apart by the ravages of sin, to be subject to his just and gentle rule;
who is alive and reigns with you,in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
We pray for the Church of Christ throughout the world, remembering those Christians in countries where their beliefs make them vulnerable and in danger, and especially the Coptic Christian community in Egypt. Uphold and strengthen all who are persecuted for their faith. We pray for hostages and their families and loved ones from whom they are separated.We give thanks for our church here and in Parbold, and the ministry of our Vicar Sue and our church leaders. May we point the way to God’s Kingdom in our community, and welcome all who are seeking through our doors.
Lord, we thank you for the gifts, talents and abilities you have given each of us, praying that a deeper understanding of those talents can be used and shared within our church and our community. Set us free from the fear that makes us inward looking. Give us a renewed generosity with our time, our talents and our treasure. Give us a renewed concern for those who are struggling in our congregations and our communities. Give us a renewed vision of what it is for us to be your church, in this place, at this time.
Early Morning Prayers
Most Thursday mornings at 7am in All Saints.
Come and pray for our church, our world and ourselves. It’s a great way to start your day.
We are grieving for the loss of our Brother Simon Glynn. We give thanks for his time among us at All Saints, and Christ Church. We give thanks for his steadfast faith, for his ministry to us as individuals, as families and as congregations, for his commitment, compassion, enthusiasm and thirst for giving your Word to us.
We pray that you will be close to his dear wife Clare, his sons Sam and Joel, and his family and congregation at St John’s in Burscough, and that you will give them comfort and bless them in the difficult days that lie ahead. We ask that your Spirit may move among us at this time, and that we may do justice to Simon’s love for you in Christ by ministering to one another now and until we all meet again in the coming of your Kingdom. In the name of Christ our Lord and Saviour, Amen.
Psalm 61 verse 2 spoke to me, may it bless you: ‘From the end of the earth will I cry unto you, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.’
