Gracious God Almighty Redeemer, hear us as we call to you.
We love you so much and are thankful for all you give us
especially your son Jesus. He came into the world that we
might be forgiven of our sins, and have everlasting life.
We pray that his sacrifice was not in vain and that we will
try to do your will O Lord.
We pray for others who are in desperate need of help and if
possible we will be there for them. Alternately we can pray,
not just a few minutes when we remember, but sustained
prayer day after day. We know the power of prayer is immense
but first we actually have to pray! Help us here Lord if our
resolve begins to waver.
At this time of the year most of us are busy with new ideas and
projects. Unfortunately not everyone is happy, especially
those who have loved ones who are ill, those who are bereaved.
or simply those who are lonely. We pray that you will be with
them Lord because only you can make that real difference.
Be with all the care workers and those who deal with the vulnerable
and the old, bless them Lord. Give them compassion and strength
along with a calm and caring demeanour for what is a difficult and
sometimes a challenging job.
We bring our prayers to you through Jesus your son Amen.
