Today we pray for the needs of our town and the world.

Into our world of darkness
Into our places of strife
Into our troubles and weakness
Come Lord

Into our joys and celebrations
Into our homes and to our loved ones
Into our work and our achievements
Come Lord

To those who are in need,
To those who are in sickness
To those who are in despair
Come Lord

Reaching out to our neighbours

Today we pray for grace to engage with those we live amongst.

           

Heavenly Father, help us to see opportunities to share your love with the people we meet.

Show us how to serve them, and when to speak.

We pray too for our church and the churches in our area,

that we will be effective in telling the Jesus story

and giving people ways to find out more and to respond.

Amen.

World-wide Wisdom?

During these difficult times many have found the Internet to be a godsend, enabling us to keep regularly in touch with people who we are unable to visit physically. The World Wide Web has also given us access to more facts, figures and information (and opinions) than we can properly cope with. We don’t need to keep stuff in our heads, it’s all just a click away.

However, the World Wide Web doesn’t give world-wide wisdom. And more than ever we need wisdom; to know what to believe, and how to judge what we hear and read. We need wisdom to make right choices. Wisdom grows in the soil of experience, and is nourished by love and compassion; for creation, for others, and for ourselves. Wisdom requires an open mind and a faithful heart. The Bible exhorts us to seek wisdom, the most precious of Gods gifts. Wisdom will help us to steer a right course through these confusing, uncertain and anxious times.

October 14th

Jesus often asks us to examine why we do what we do! Do we do it simply because it is expected of us? Or do we act in a certain way because we want others to think well of us? Or do we choose to do something because it is the “loving” thing to do?

Might we be mindful of our motivations praying that each day our actions will flow from our love for God and our love for God’s people!

 

Lord, help us to examine our relationship with those around us in our reactions and responses, to desire all that is good, and acceptable to you. Amen

FOR TO-DAY

October 20th

We pray today for those who are weary and burdened. So many of us are finding it hard to “carry on” without seeing or holding loved ones. A smile even with only our eyes or a wave of our hands can bring a moment of comfort.


We pray that there will be no more gloom for those who were in anguish.
We pray that you lift away people’s burdens.
We pray you remove the things that oppress from people’s lives.
We pray you give courage to those who fear.
Your light still shines for all to see in this world.
May we continue to reflect your light in our lives,
in our service, in our words and in our deeds.

Care of our fragile earth.

 

During the last months appreciation of the natural world, its beauty and the benefits we gain from our environment, has increased. Our world is fragile; human activity damages it in so many ways. Today's prayer is a pledge to care for the world we live in, so that all may benefit. It is a chance to look at our own behaviour, how we consume resources, behave towards " disposable" assets and care for the most vulnerable both humans and animals. Let us cherish God's gift to us.

 

Lord God, King of the universe, we thank you for this fragile Earth, our home. We pledge to take care of it, of the environment and all its inhabitants. Make us good stewards of all the treasures you have given into our care. Maybe work together to improve life on this planet for the good of all.  In Jesus name we pray.

Amen

Anniversary of the Dedication of St Cuthbert’s Church.

Today we give birthday thanks for our parish church born this day in 1870.

Almighty God, to whose glory we celebrate the dedication of this house of prayer of St Cuthbert’s, Amble:

we praise you for the many blessings you have given to those who worship you here: and we pray that all who seek you in this place may find you, and, being filled with the Holy Spirit, may become a living temple acceptable to you; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord.

Amen.

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