On this Sunday in October…as the nation and the world still wrestles with new cases 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 the Church in our world at this time – to be salt and light
For NHS and Care Home staff across the nation
For our country and world leaders at this time of decision making
Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from the Living God
Reading : PSALM 30
Meditation : As we pause with God take time and consider these words this Sunday morning. A Prayer of Thanksgiving!
What words stay with you?
What encourages and challenges you today?
And then pray in response to the LORD our God
Pray your own prayer of praise and thanksgiving today.
O LORD our God,
Good and mighty One,
Our Creator God,
Great and so worthy of praise.
We bow before You.
We lay our lives before You.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Pray the Prayer for the Month as your own midday prayer
We rejoice in your love, O God!
We rejoice in your care, O Father God!
We rejoice in your saving grace, O Lord!
We rejoice in your good gifts, O merciful Lord!
We give thanks!
We worship you!
With our words and songs of praise!
In Jesus’ name
Amen and Amen.
Reading : read these verses again from PSALM 30
Reflect on all that is said here in this psalm and then Pray with rejoicing to this God
O LORD, our Great God,
Hear our evening prayers of praise we ask
As we thank you for what we read
As we look back over our day
As we look ahead to tomorrow
As we name before you those we are concerned about.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
