Prayer for Friday 9th May

Today, from our church family, we pray for Paula Homer.

Next week sees the start of Christian Aid Week.  We pray for all who will take out and collect the Christian Aid envelopes for the street collection.  May the bright red Christian Aid logo, on the carrier bags the collectors use, shine out as a symbol of our Christian faith as we go around our local community.  The envelopes which flutter through the letter boxes show our friends and neighbours that we care about the poor and underprivileged in our world.  Loving Lord, may this week of events raise sufficient money to enable Christian Aid to do its valuable work amongst the poorest people in the world.
Prayer for Christian Aid week:
“Lord Jesus,
for journeys home;
for determined steps to peace;
for hope overcoming fear;
for kindness against violence;
for goodness and mercy.
Even through the horrors of war;
for the breaking of bread and for prayers;
for sharing what we have; for all these things,
give us glad and generous hearts.  Amen.”
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
