Prayer

The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
Psalms 145:18

Weekly Prayer Life

Almighty and merciful God, who is the strength of the weak, the refreshment of the weary, the comfort of the sad, the help of the tempted, the life of the dying, the God of patience and of all consolation; you know full well the inner weakness of our nature, how we tremble and quiver before pain, and cannot bear the cross without your divine help and support. Help me, the, O eternal and pitying God, help me to possess my soul in patience, to maintain unshaken hope in you, to keep that childlike trust which feels a Father’s heart hidden beneath the cross; so shall I be strengthened with power according to your glorious might, in all patience and long-suffering; I shall be enabled to endure pain and temptation, and, in the very depth of my suffering, to praise you with a joyful heart.
Amen.

Please pray together with us this week for:

  • Continue to pray for our church, our city and our world in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

  • Pray that each of us as followers of Jesus Christ might reflect his love and light to those around us during these challenging times.

 

  • Pray for our worship together that we might draw near to the “God who gives endurance and encouragement” (Romans 15:5). This week in our Sunday worship we are studying Matthew 20:29-34, ‘God hears our Cries’.
