fallen down at some point and for this we are sorry.
We pray Lord that all the small things that distress and tempt
us, you will use to strengthen us, and we will be all the
better for coming through those temptations.

plan for us. He knows best and we must follow him doing as
he asks us, whither we see the end result or not.

new day strong in the knowledge that God is by our side and
never asks us to do anything we are not capable of doing.

daily lives and that he will guide and bless us in all we do
in his name for Jesus sake Amen.

for giving us Jesus in whose name we bring these prayers.

time and we can do so much, all in your name.

EASTER DAY ; 31st March 2013
Christ is Risen
Oh God our Father thank you for this wondrous Easter Day
when Jesus your own beloved son rose from the tomb.
Alleluia he lives, he has conquered death and sin.
He sets us free with his Holy Blood, that was spilled for us
on that cruel cross, not just for some of us but ALL of us.
We thank you Father and joyfully proclaim your name.
We pray that from the darkness of the cross, to the brightness
Of a glorious new beginning, we can celebrate
with you God and the Heavenly Host above.
Let us raise our voices high, singing the praise of God our
Redeemer, and unto him give All Glory Laud and Honour

ready to bring Gods love to everyone we meet.

Palm Sunday Prayer ; 24th march 2013
Its here ! the day of jubilation,
when crowds and shouts were heard all around.
We pray Gracious God that as we celebrate PALM SUNDAY
we realise what it means to us. The cries that day were Hosanna
Hosanna, glory to the Highest ! Jesus was entering Jerusalem
in triumph, albeit on a donkey covered in coats.
We know that the crowds believed that Jesus was the
Messiah come to free them from Roman oppression.
All to soon the mood changed and the crowd were against Him.
We pray that we can change how we feel, as sometimes
we are like that crowd.
We turn our back on you, we speak out of turn,
we do not honour you, please merciful God forgive us
as we are weak and foolish.
Yes by all means let us celebrate Palm Sunday,
but in praying to you we will never forget the horror
of what is to follow before we reach that wonderful
glorious day of the Resurrection
Through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour Amen.
Prayer 11 17th March 2013
We come before you Almighty God on this 5th Sunday
of Lent, to praise and worship you.
We are preparing for our glorious Easter season and in this
we remember John the Baptist, who came to prepare the way
How pleased and proud he was when he baptised Jesus,
surely it was one of the most wonderful moments of his life!
May we prepare for the next few weeks Lord by worshiping
just a little more deeply
just a little bit more fervently
just a little bit more devoutly
just a little bit more meaningfully .
We pray that we will have the strength to walk with you
On your road to Calvary,
as you walk with us every day of our lives.
We bring these prayers to you Father through Jesus your beloved son
