As we step into a new year – with God – together
We PAUSE with Him in prayer
We REJOICE in the blessings He has given in 2021
We ASK for His presence, peace and strength in 2022 – for ourselves and for others
We YIELD – say Yes – to His Kingdom ways in the days and months to come
On this particular Friday…as the year draws to a close….as the nation and the world wrestles with the new variant and vaccine supplies…and other points of crisis and concern… you are invited to pause and continue to pray with others in our city and across the nation…to the LORD our God, our Father God.
You are encouraged to pray for all those affected by the coronavirus – in our community, in our nation and in our world – and for parts of the world in turmoil at this time
For family and friends and neighbours
For all those who are anxious and grieving in our community
For NHS and Care Home staff across the nation
For our country and world leaders at this time
(thank you Church of Scotland for this)
As we journey from 2021 into 2022 is there a prayer that sums up your journey with God? Is there someone you would like prayer for?
The Prayer Wall on the Kirk website is available for you.
The Prayer Team will see your request and will support you/another in prayer at this time.
You can request for your prayer not to be made public.
You are invited to post a prayer at this significant time of the year – and trust God for His answer and help and blessing.
Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from Jesus
Reading : JOHN 3 verses 22-36
Meditation : as we pause with Jesus today, we take time to rejoice with Him!
And then we Pray with words of Praise to this God of ours in response
At the close of the year
As we step into 2022
And so we bring our sacrifice of praise to you, our God Most High.
As we thank you for all that is past
And trust you for all that is to come
Amen – we pray together.
Pray with thanksgiving for all babies born in our community in 2021
Father God, hear our prayers and bless them real good we ask
Reading : read this passage again from JOHN 3
Reflect on the words written here and pray in response to the LORD our Saviour God
Praise the LORD!
Praise the LORD, my soul
I will praise him as long as I live;
I will sing to my God all my life.
O hear our evening prayers
As this year closes
As the new year approaches
In Jesus’ name, Amen!
