Prayer 2020

 

     20th March 2020

     Some thoughts inspired by the prayers we sing.

 

Join our ‘virtual choir’ as we sing our prayers and spend time in conversation with God. Remembering that we are praying with God’s church throughout the country at 20.20pm, on the 20th day of the month for just 20 minutes.

Let us sing the prayer that Jesus gave us The Lord's Prayer

 

As you spend the rest of the time in prayer you might like to you use one of these resources:

A.

As we pray with churches around the nation -

we think of those who staff and use foodbanks,

we think of those who find isolation difficult and threatening to their mental well-being,

we think of those in authority both in churches and in government as they try to discern the best way forward

Be with all those whose names you place into our hearts and give us opportunities to introduce the words of the bible into difficult situations.

[In the silence allow time for God’s voice to be heard]

Prayer of the month Wednesday 20th May 2020

Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of your Holy Spirit. Help me to pray for five people who don’t yet know you. Please work in their lives to open their hearts and minds to your love and truth shown to us in Jesus. Help me to speak to them about you. May they be led by the Holy Spirit to repent and follow you (John 15:1).

We finish our 20 minutes together singing the words of the blessing from the Old Testament:
