Prayer for Businesses

Let us remember those struggling to keep their businesses going in these difficult times, for those made unemployed and those who continue to work often in risky circumstances.

God of Creation, we ask your blessing on commerce and trade 

that maintains the economic fabric of our communities,

bless those struggling to make appropriate decisions that will benefit their staff and customers;

give strength and wisdom to those assisting their actions, 

and help us all to remember the needy in our midst.

Keep safe those who continue to work 

especially those who put themselves at risk for the good of others.

A prayer for all times and places


Here is a simple but profound prayer that originated, we think, amongst the desert mothers and fathers of the early church. It can be said at any time in any circumstance. It is a statement of faith because it acknowledges who Jesus is. It is a statement of trust because it accepts that we can approach Jesus who will hear our prayer. It is a statement of healing humility because it acknowledges our waywardness and our need of Him, in all times and in all places.


It can be repeated, in times of meditation, in rhythm with our breathing but especially it can be said when we are anxious or afraid, or hurting, or 

angry or being tempted.


It can be said, at this time, for and on 

behalf of all humanity.


Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me a sinner!


For reading and reflection: Luke 18.9-14

"Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."
