Daily reading and prayer

Monday 30 – Isaiah 41:10  Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Lord God, God our Father, your love for our world and for each of us individually is so great that you sent Jesus, your Son, to live fully as one of us. May he lead us to live in peace and work well with each other to build your kingdom in our world which you love so much. May your Spirit unite us and lead us till time is no more, and we see you face to face.

Amen.

Daily reading and prayer

Sunday 29 – 2 Timothy 1:7  For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

Gracious Lord be with us today as we seek to understand what is going on around us. Things we don’t have control over. Things that are making us frustrated, helpless and lost. Some of us are separated from our loved ones at this time and we know the reason why, but are empowered to obey the governments ruling, of keeping everyone safe. Give us self-control and understanding to act on it. In this time of lock-down we ask that you surround us with your love, your care and your protection. So when the light of the darkness shines through and be assured that it will. We have come to know you more and to know you is to love you always.

Amen.

 

Daily reading and prayer

Saturday 28 – John 6:27  Do not labour for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.”

Gracious Saviour direct and control us in every part of our life. Bring fellowships together with new beginnings, sharing your thread through them all. Never let us ignore you or the part others have played in our lives. Opening a new chapter on the book called life. By bringing the love that your son has given to us.

Amen

Our phone contact scheme becomes even more important now. It has already been well received by many, so thank you too to those who contacted all the names on the list. Please now let others know that there will be no more services.
