Prayer



 

At this time we have been exploring how we might continue to offer prayer in these difficult times, especially for those unable to come to church.

The Prayer Team has been continuing to pray for all of the congregation and for the wardens, Susan and Nicky. If you wish us to pray for you or anyone else then please send your prayer to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. All your prayer requests will be treated as confidential.  We have used a separate email address so that only the Prayer Team wil read the emails.  Please note that we will not be replying to individual emails. The Prayer Team will pray for your request over the next few weeks. 
 

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. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) if you would like the Zoom link, or if you would simply like a bit more information.

 


THIRD SUNDAY OF EPIPHANY

 Collect

Almighty God, whose Son revealed in signs and miracles
the wonder of your saving presence:
renew your people with your heavenly grace,
and in all our weakness sustain us by your mighty power;
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 in the time of Coronavirus

Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your mercy

in this time of uncertainty and distress.

Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,

and lift up all who are brought low

that we may rejoice in your comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

in Christ Jesus our Lord,

Amen.

God of Compassion,
Be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their lonliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through Him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord,
Amen.
