My Favourite Prayers From The Week

by Christine Sine

Let us act as children of light.001

As many of you know I love to write prayers which I post on the Light for the Journey Facebook page each day. The prayer above was written after the shooting at SPU and with the other shootings across the U.S. this week it has been very much on my mind. As you read it I hope that you will pray for all those impacted by these horrific acts.

———————————————-

God may we today discover the good news of your kingdom,
The good news of healing, freedom, forgiveness and reconciliation.
May we taste its abundance and embrace its peace.
May it lead us to the fullness of life,
A life of sharing, caring liberating, and celebrating.

——————————

God let the joy of your presence fill us,
Christ let the wonder of your love transform us,
Spirit let the peace of your indwelling sustain us,
This day and every day.
Amen.

Circle us Lord,
Let your love and peace fill us.
Circle us Lord,
Let your compassion and concerns stir us.
Circle us Lord,
Let your truth and justice guide us.

This prayer inspired by SlowChurch.com gathering at the Mustard Seed House.

Lord Jesus Christ, let us sit in your presence,
Savouring the fragrance of your love.
May we always take time for you,
And ever make space for you.
May we never be too busy to listen,
May we never be too tired to pray.
Lord Jesus Christ, let us sit in the company of friends
And enjoy sweet fellowship with you.
May we eat together of your abundance,
And share of your generosity.
May we never be too busy to listen,
May we never be too tired to pray.

God of power and glory,
we praise your holy name!
Your Pentecostal fire
spread not from priest or king
but from ordinary lives
when through your disciples
you set this world aflame.
So fill this place, we pray,
that your Spirit’s power
might be seen
through these ordinary lives.
Re-kindle the fire in our hearts
that was lit when we first believed,
that we might become
a blessing to many.
God of power and glory,
we praise your holy name!

God may your light be with us today.
Let it shine on the path ahead,
And fill us with the joy of seeing you.
Let it shine through the face of strangers,
And be revealed in the companionship of friends.
God let your light be with today,
May it bring us to the day’s end,
With thanks and gratitude.
