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
September 17, 2017 – Fifteenth Sunday After Pentecost
Lord our God, you fill heaven and earth with your Spirit and allow us to share in your gifts. We thank you for all you have given us, for all you are giving and will give. We are poor and needy; all men are poor and needy in spite of their striving, longing, and seeking. Only you, through your Spirit, can awaken something in us to help us go toward your goal. Keep us from being caught up in what men do. The greatest help for our hearts is what you do, and each of us can tell something about it. Each of us has received help beyond anything we had hoped or thought of. How much you have done for us! How much you are doing for the nations! Yes, we thank you for this present time. The time will surely come when our hearts will be released from their hunger and we can be filled with the life from above, which you give us in Jesus Christ. Amen.
September 10, 2017 – Fourteenth Sunday After Pentecost
Our Holy Father God, we praise you for the life you give to each person you dearly love. As we face the mysteries of sin and tragedy in this fragile world, give us wisdom to view them in the light of the Cross.
We praise you for your redeeming love for the world. Help us to put on the armour of Christ Crucified and Risen, and turn aside from wasteful things, so that we may live according to your way.
We dedicate ourselves to your service.
We pray in the name of Christ, through whose self-giving love you have conquered death forever.
(Psalm 119:33-40, Romans 13:8-14)
Early Morning Prayers
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.
All welcome. We are having a break for the summer, and the meeting will resume on 7th September 2017.
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.’
This page is a focus for our prayer life at All Saints. We believe that earnest, thoughtful, regular and honest prayer is the key to our individual and collective relationship with our wonderful Creator, God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. If you want to share a prayer or prayers on this page, do not hesitate to contact us with your thoughts. If there is a situation that you wish to bring before God and would like us to be mindful of as a Church family, share it with us. We want to share together what we want to say to Him.
