Battersea and Wandle Valley Circuit - Prayers from the District
Sunday 07 February 2021
Creator God, who sees and knows all that we are facing today,
as we navigate through these difficult days, weeks, and months,
help us not to be distracted but to focus on you Lord.
Remove all doubts, fears, and anxieties from our minds and draw us close to you.
We pray that the churches in our Circuit may find peace, joy, hope and comfort,
during these challenging times and may your light shine upon us.
Holy Spirit inspire and encourage us to be open to new ways of serving those in need and appreciating those in our midst.
Merciful God as we look for new ways of worship, give us a spirit of discernment and the wisdom to reach out to all so that none will be left out or left behind.
We pray that we may be able to live with our differences with tolerance, understanding and humility to bring peace to all.
We ask you to pray for:
We give thanks for our new minsters for bringing fresh insights and new gifts to our circuit.
We pray that ministers will be united in love as one body working together to bring the good news of Christ to renew, encourage, nurture, and nourish God’s people.
We give thanks for those who have been working tirelessly to get our zoom services up and running.
We pray for our Local Preachers and Worship Leaders in training, that, even in these times of uncertainty, they will not lose hope but continue to live out their calling.
We pray for our administrator as the circuit look at new ways of working, that the process will be fairly, sensitively and done with love.
We pray for those who have lost loved ones and family members because of Covid-19,
and for those who are still experiencing side effects.
Lord we ask that you give them total healing of body and mind.
We pray all these in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
