Pause for Prayer

‘Make us Christ-like, O God,

not merely people who name the name of Jesus.

Give us your Holy Spirit

so that we, too, may take up our cross,

bear within ourselves the cost of sin and

allow new relationships and a new world to be born -

By forgiving others, even as we ask them and you to forgive us.

Amen’

Audrey’s daughter, Judith, chose this North American Indian prayer to be read at her funeral.

 

Earth teach me quiet – as the grasses are still with new light.

Earth teach me suffering – as old stones suffer with memory.

Earth teach me humility- as blossoms are humble with beginnings.

Earth teach me caring – as mothers nurture their young.

A Prayer for Walking the Way

 

Lord of all,

as you walked this earth sharing love, grace and mercy,

we pray that we will place our footsteps in yours

and walk where you lead

as we live out your life in our daily living

for Jesus’ sake.

Amen

A Prayer for March

Lord, it is not always easy to pray for things outside ourselves.

Why are so many people bent on evil things ?

But Lord, the number of good people far outweigh the bad and I pray that the good people continue to pass on their good example.

Bless all who are kind, loving their neighbours and following your example or at least trying to.

PRAYER FOR THE MONTH

Lord God, we give you thanks for the year which has passed.

We thank you for the many ways you have touched us in moments of happiness or distress.

We thank you for the people who matter to us, who have given  themselves to us and through whom you have been present to us in their love.

We thank you for your church, the community of faith in whose company we have journeyed, whose friendship we value, whose  challenge we welcome and whose wide boundaries are not defined by time, space or death.
