Thursday 2 May 2024 Silent Prayer from 1-1.30pm

You are invited to join others in church on 2 May for our monthly silent prayer session. You may find this prayer sheet helpful – please bring a copy with you. If you are not able to join us, we hope you will pray with us wherever you are.

 

Our text for May, Jesus said, “As the Father has loved me so, have I loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love.”

  

Let us pray for the church and the world and thank God for his goodness. Heavenly Father we pray for the fellowship of the church that supports and helps us to put our faith into practice.

 

Strengthen us Lord in your service that we may be an encouragement to others and hold fast to all that is good.

 

As we continue our journey through Eastertide, we prepare to celebrate Christ’s Ascension on 9th May and the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost on 19th May. Christ has risen. Alleluia

 

We pray for the worldwide Christian Church, Christ’s body on earth, and for all church leaders. We pray especially for those churches who meet in difficult and dangerous places. May they be aware of your abiding presence to uphold their courage and strengthen their faith.

 

Father God, we thank you for all those who help our local community to run smoothly. Bless our neighbours and strengthen those who are working in your name to bring healing and comfort to those in need. We also pray for the local council and Mayoral elections in London today, praying that those who are elected will seek to serve all people in their communities. 

 

We pray for God’s world and we long for the time when all the families of the nations will bow down before you and the poor and hungry will eat and be satisfied. We pray for world leaders who bear the heavy responsibility of providing for their populations; give them wisdom to know what is right and the courage to make often difficult decisions. We pray for peace in all places where there is violence, war and terrorism including in the Middle East and Ukraine. 

 

Loving God, we bring to you the sufferings of those we hold dear; the struggle of those trying to cope with difficult circumstances; the pain of the sick at home, in hospital or care homes; the loneliness of the elderly and the frail. In your great mercy bring them comfort and reassurance that you are always with them in their troubles.

 

We pray for those known to us who need our prayers and for those who have asked for our prayers on our church prayer board. 

 

We give thanks and praise for the wonder of God’s world around us, in our parks and gardens, for the joy of warmer weather so we may enjoy and find peace and refreshment outside in these beautiful places.

    

Give grace to us, our families, our friends and all our neighbours that we may serve Christ in one another and love as he loves us.

 

Lord in your mercy hear our prayers. Amen  

 

We finish by saying the Lord’s Prayer.

A Prayer for all the people of the Holy Land

 

God of mercy and compassion, of grace and reconciliation, pour down your power upon all your children in the Holy Land: Jews, Muslims, Christians, Palestinians, Israelis.

Let hatred be turned into love, fear to trust, despair to hope, oppression to freedom, occupation to liberation, that violent encounters may be replaced with loving embraces, and peace and justice can be experienced by all. Amen

 

Prayer for Peace in 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
