Pause for Prayer

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.

Give them peace, especially those in the wider world.

Bless those nearer to home in our country and bless the people close to us here in Broadway.

May they also know your constant and abiding love.

Bring us all in our village churches closer together and this we ask in the name of your Son , our Saviour.



Pause for Prayer


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.

As we move on now into a new year, give us grace to leave behind our regrets and our failures and any sense of guilt, to let go of the past with gratitude and to leave in your hands the future in faith, to live each moment in joyful discipleship in the company of him who is always Emmanuel, God with us.
