Prayer Cycle and Prayer of the Month - February 2019

The Prayer Cycle is always there for you. Requests and Thank you's to Julia (tel: 01747 829166), The Rev’d June (tel: 01747 828427), Theresa (tel: 101747 829188), or the Rev’d Richard (tel: 01747 830174).

There are two prayers this month - a familiar one we have used before at this time of year, and one which is new to us.

They both serve as a reminder that we need God's guidance and help.

O God, You have made us for Yourself,
and against Your longing there is no defence.
Mark us with Your love,
and release in us a passion for justice
in our digitised world;
that we may turn from our guild and face You,
our heart's desire.

by Janet Morley

 Heavenly Father,
We remember with gratitude,
The light of the star which drew them on;
those wise men, travelling with their gifts
for a fellow wise man, and a king.

We believe that light draws us on;
Draws us to Jesus, Light of the World,
Draws us to give ourselves.

And the Light that is Jesus,
also gives us light;
it shows us the way,
it shines before us to encourage us.

This is light; true light; the Light of the world;
the light that is a way of peace, hope, justice and forgiveness;
The Light that is Love in a darkened world;
and the way to God, Father of us all.   Amen
