Circuit Prayer

Prayer Image 2We pray for the life of your church in our community and Sankey Valley Circuit. We pray that you will be with us in our sharing and learning.
God be with us.

We pray for all the church families in our circuit that their presence may rise in strength in their communities; we pray for and with your servants – presbyters, deacon, lay workers and congregations along with our partners and friends in other denominations – that we may share in the mighty commission to spread the good news. Lord, in our evangelising,
God be with us.

Lord, focus our thinking today on the people we serve, that we may know their thoughts and feel their feelings. As we endeavour to serve with unconditional love.
God be with us.

Lord, we seek to encourage your servants through worship that honours you; enliven our senses; help us to see the options of possibility, the realms of reality that may lie before and around us, awaken our consciousness.
God be with us.

May all that we do today help us discern your will for your servants here. Lead us beyond ourselves, into the lives of others, into the breath and pulsation of community. May we not know limitation; may we embrace openness and may we encourage risk taking.
God be with us.

Lord we know you are with us as we seek to bring glory to you; we commit to your care all that we share and learn here in this space in this time.

 In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
