Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from the Living God
Reading : EPHESIANS 4 verses 1-16
Meditation : take time to consider these words about the Church.
Which images or words stay with you?
What is God saying to you today from His Word?
and then pray to God in response this Sunday
giving thanks for your church family
and the Church worldwide.
O LORD God,
In Jesus’ name,
Amen we say together.
Pray for the Big Alpha focus on the Church this evening
O LORD, God of mercy, hear our cry and pour out a blessing we ask!

Reflect on their meaning today for you and for others known to you….
and then Pray in response
A Celtic Prayer
Give to us all a quiet understanding and a will to reach out to each other in compassion.
May we be mindful of others’ opinions, but delighting always in
the wonderful diversity of gifts we each bring to your family.
And may we never forget that the world sees you in all that we do
And all that we say.
