Prayer



 


FIRST SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

 Collect

O God, the strength of all those who put their trust in you,

mercifully accept our prayers and,
because through the weakness of our mortal nature
we can do no good thing without you,
grant us the help of your grace,
that in the keeping of your commandments
we may please you both in will and deed;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Amen

 

 


A Prayer for Ukraine


God of peace and justice,
we pray for the people of Ukraine today.
We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons.
We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow.
that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them
We pray for those with power over war or peace,
for wisdom, discernment and compassion
to guide their decisions.
Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear,
that you would hold and protect them.
We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
Amen.







Lectio Divina Group The group that met during Lent to explore the lectio divina way of praying with scripture has decided to continue on a monthly basis on Zoom. The group continues to meet on Thursdays at 2.00pm. Revd Kate will be leading us as we explore the Gospel for the following Sunday. Newcomers are very welcome! Just drop Kate an email (This email address is being protected from spambots.

God our redeemer, you have delivered us from the power of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of your Son:

grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life,

so by his continual presence in us he may raise us

to eternal joy; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
