Ephesians 5

Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Let's pray for Arnside

We know that you love us and love the world. We thank you for the many blessings that you shower upon us every day. We place all our cares and concerns before you. We especially pray for this village of Arnside: for everyone who lives and works here, and for the many visitors to this beautiful place. Be close to those who are sick, bereaved, lonely or afraid. Enable everyone to know your peace, your comfort and your love. We make our prayer in the name of Jesus who is our risen Lord. Amen. 

 

A Prayer for Those with Distant Relatives

Creator God,

Author of eternity

To you galaxies are millimetres

And years are but grains of sand

You hold before you all times and all places

Yet to me these deep concepts

Are beyond my understanding

I feel the distance of relatives and friends

I feel the ache of my concern for them

And I can do nothing about it

They are removed from me

Held at a distance

Socially separated by

Miles and metres and hours and minutes

Give me peace of mind Lord

For the welfare of those I cannot visit

Make yourself known to me

And make yourself known to them

That they might know your peace

And find support and comfort in their local communities

I pray for my peace and theirs

Speak into the void Lord God

Amen

 

Tim Watson / Socially Distant
