For a church to grow and flourish prayer must be at the centre of all we do. It is important that we pray together in Sunday worship and at our prayer meetings, it is vital we pray for one another, and we must also pray for ourselves.
Our next prayer meeting takes place on Monday 3rd October at 8.00 pm in the Rectory.
A prayer for those who mourn
Lord Jesus Christ
May the tears shed in your earthly life
Be balm for all who weep,
And may the prayers of your pilgrimage
Give strength to all who suffer;
For your mercy's sake
A PRAYER FOR STRENGTH
Dear Lord, see me through these hard times. In these troubling times, I am filled with unspeakable fears. I reach out my hand to you now, And ask you to walk besides me. I cannot carry all my burdens, But I know you can, and will. Please walk beside me. Please guide me. Please strengthen me through the trials and storms and help me trust you in even the darkest hour. Stay with me Lord, and show me Your way. In your love and Holy Spirit I abide. Amen.
