Prayer for Sunday 25th May 2014

Today from our church family we pray for Emma Knott

Collect for 6th Sunday of Easter
“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 our Lord. Amen.”

Heavenly Father, as we come together to worship today we pray for Simon and Phill and Penny and Margaret and for all those serving you in different  aspects of our church life. We pray for the other churches in our cluster -St Matthews, St Paul’s, St Luke’s, and St John ’s. Lord give health and strength to all the clergy. We pray for their families and for their 
congregations, especially for St Matthew’s as they look again for a new Rector. Whatever the future holds for all our churches keep us strong in our faith and a support to each other.

“Jesus, Light of the World,
When I am afraid and unsure,
comfort me with the light of your presence,
when loneliness chills me,
warm me with the light of your love,
when the road ahead seems dark,
Guide me with the light of your way,
When I don’t understand and my thoughts are unclear,
Fill me with the light of your wisdom,
When I seem like a candle consumed,
Replenish me with the light of your life,
Then, so filled with your light, use me,
So that I, with you may be
Light for the World!”   (Father Wally Hyclak)
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer
