Prayer

7th January

We remember all Christians throughout the world who will be committing their lives once again to God through the covenant service. We give thanks that we can worship with different denominations yet all worshipping the same God

From the Methodist Prayer Handbook, we pray for the Christians in Israel and Palestine and pray that peace will come to that part of the world. We pray for the Isle of Man District and for light shining out to visitors week by week.

In the Circuit we pray for Seaton Methodist Church and the initiates to concentrate upon ministry in the local community and the local Primary School

 

As we gather once again to renew our commitment to God, we pray that he may guide us in 2017 and show us the way in which we can spread his kingdom in the world. Amen

Here I am, Lord. Speak, for your servant is listening. Act, for your servant is waiting.

Come, Holy Spirit.  Amen. (Roots for churches 2018)

We pray for the people who meet on our premises on a weekly basis, not connected with a church group, but may they still know the love of God as they meet

From the Methodist Prayer handbook we pray for the church in Indonesia and Sri Lanka that the various denominations may continue to work together. We pray for the Liverpool district and the pioneering approaches to sharing the gospel, and the mission opportunities in Southport.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. I will remember God’s marvellous works.
I will give thanks to God with my whole heart. I will seek God’s wisdom and rejoice in God’s love.
Amen.  (Roots for Churches 2018)
