Prayer for the Week [Week 19 (4 May – 10 May 2020)]
  • Pray for our CAP ministry. Pray for Martin, and the CAP clients, as he is contacting them in this very challenging time. May the Lord anoint Martin to be able to offer practical support and hope!
  • Please pray together with our brothers and sisters at 19:00 on Sundays as we are facing the Coronavirus crisis in our nation and world!
  • Please pray for those ill at this time;
  • Please pray for the medical staff up and down the nation who care for all who are ill and unwell!
  • Please pray for all the key workers who keep the country and our daily life going, and at the same time put themselves in the way of peril!
  • Please pray that we will humble ourselves and ask for God’s favour upon us to heal our land! “13When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:13-14)

Prayer for Sunday, 3 May 2020

Good Shepherd, watch over us today
In all we face and experience.
Never leave us or forsake us
And journey with us always.
Lord in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Good Shepherd, you know us
As no-one else knows us.
Guard us and keep us,
As you guard and keep those whom we love.
Lord in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Good Shepherd, we pray for the sick and the lonely;
For the anxious and the bereaved;
For those whose pain is beyond our comprehension.
We stand with them and commend them to your care.
Lord in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Good Shepherd, we pray for the carers in hospitals and in homes
And for all who serve the needs of others.
May the example of living compassion
Inspire us in our care for others.
Lord in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Good Shepherd, you know the depths of our heart
And the fears which are ours.
Speak into the depths of our heart
And calm our fears.
Lord in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Good Shepherd, you know us by our name
And our identity is not hidden from you.
Gather us to yourself as a Shepherd gathers the sheep,
That we might know your Name.
Lord in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.
