23rd Psalm

Submitted by Emmanuel on 26 August, 2021

Lord of the 23rd Psalm, 

I have known death, 

and you have refreshed my soul. 

I have known fear, 

and you have comforted me. 

I have known hunger, 

and you have set a feast before me. 

In the darkest valley 

no calamity of humankind or nature has separated us. 

Teach me to walk as you walk 

Beside those in mourning 

so that they will know joy, 

Beside those in fear 

that they will know comfort, 

Beside those in hunger 

that they will feast until their cup overflows. 

As your goodness and love follow me, 

May mine follow my neighbour 

That the threat of the worst terrors 

May turn to the knowledge of the comforts of 

the house of the Lord, 

Where you have invited us to dwell forever. 

And so let me strive to help build on earth 

What you have promised us in heaven. 

In the face of all calamity, present and yet to come, 

Let me lead my neighbour beside quiet waters, 

The quiet waters of the Good Shepherd. 

AMEN

Sunday Prayer

Submitted by Helen Smith on 26 February, 2021

All-knowing God,

We gather together with praise and thanksgiving

for who You are,

and for all that You have done for us.

You know us better than we know ourselves—

all our thoughts and actions—

and yet You love us.

No matter where we go or what we do,

Your love encircles us—ahead and behind—

gently leading and guiding and blessing.

We praise You for Your love

and Your faithful presence in our lives.

May Your Spirit move in our hearts and minds as we worship together:

examine our attitudes and actions,

lay bare the things we need to confess,

challenge us with Your Word,

and guide us on to paths that lead to life.

For we are Your people, called by Your name.

Amen.

Year 12

Submitted by Anon on 27 October, 2020

The exams commence today for our Year 12 students.  

Father in your grace and kindness, thank you for providing all that our young people need to get through this end of year exam time. We ask that you would fill them with God-fidence they are loved, no matter what. By you, their families and their church family. Please help them know they are not on their own, but Jesus is with them through the Spirit.  

May they have quiet hearts, calm minds, clarity in understanding questions, good recall of responses an an ordered approach to providing answers, as well as the assurance that they have done and will do their best, and can rest peacefully in that knowledge, even as all their senses are heightened to achieve.

And Father, please bless their families as they release their young ones to face these challenges, knowing also, they have done their level best to raise them well and prepare them for such a time as this.

Amen

Guidance and healing

I pray for continued guidance for those in power as restrictions begin to be lifted. Pray for us all to keep safety in mind as restrictions are lifted and that we don't let fear control us but let us be guided by God and love as we start to look at what new normal looks like through the different stages of restrictions.
