Oh God our loving Heavenly Father we come before you
rejoicing and thankful for everything you have given us.
Sometimes when we come before you in prayer, we tend
to be quiet and serious but today we are happily smiling and
filled with joy.
We pray Father that our happiness is reflected in our faces
and people can see that we really are the children of God.
We must make sure that all we do comes right back to Jesus
in a positive way, again we thank you Lord for everything.
Some of us are perhaps not feeling just too well and we need
you even more. For who is the friend we can talk to when we
are alone. Who is the friend we can count on for sympathy .
Who is the friend there in the middle of the night.
Many of us live alone quite happily but in that dark hour before
dawn when we are in pain and no one is there, YOU oh Lord
cradle our lonely bodies and make all the difference to us.
We pray that you will never forsake us.
Some of us are just so happy and everything is going so well
We cant tell you just how much your presence in our lives
makes to us. We pray Lord that you will always know we love you.
So Gracious God from all of us well or ill, happy or subdued
we again say thank you for everything.
We bring these prayers to you through Jesus Christ our Lord
and saviour Amen
