A guide to help you pray

Find a place of quietness. Allow the hurry and worry of your life fall away from you. You are God's Child. He loves you and cares for you. He is here with you now and always has been, although awareness of his presence may have been absent before, be aware of him now. Speak to him slowly, simply and thoughtfully ask him to bring things to mind that you might share them with him.

Lord thank you

For your presence here and the opportunity to pray... for the promise of peace in Christ.... for the beauty of your creation....for the people who love me. For the power of the Cross and of the Holy Spirit. Help me show my gratitude in deeds as well as words.

Lord I am sorry

For the times I have been hasty and unkind especially to ...
For the times I have acted thoughtlessly and selfishly and failed to forgive or ask for forgiveness.
For the times I have forgotten your presence and taken your love and the love of others for granted.
Thank you for your promise to forgive all who turn to you in sorrow of their sin.

Lord I am troubled

I am anxious and distressed for myself and others. Especially ...
Help me to trust your love, for you carry our sorrows.
Teach me to act and speak in the way that you want.
Give me wisdom to know when not to interfere.
Calm my fears for all things are in your hands.

Lord I pray for

My family and friends. My neighbours at home, at work... the ones I like (and dislike).
Those who are ill and those who mourn.
The oppressed and those involved in disaster and war.
Bless them Father in their various troubles.
Show me how I can help.

O heavenly Father, your will for me and all people is eternal Joy. I thank you for the blessings you have given me and ask for strength to walk in the way you lead me. Help me always to remember the love of Jesus shown on the cross and accept the freedom and forgivness which he offers me.
