Prayer

by Helen Clemow last modified 26 Oct, 2017 03:46 PM

Prayer is at the heart of our life as a church. When we pray, we communicate with God through our words, our actions, or in our hearts. Our latest Cycle of Prayer is available from the grey 'Resources' box on the left.

Climate Change

Bishop Nicholas, as C of E lead for the environment, and Archbishop Thabo Makgoba of Cape Town, the Anglican Communion's lead for the environment, are praying and fasting for the climate on the first day of every month. They are asking people to consider joining them and Christians across the world. Learn more at www.prayandfastfortheclimate.org.uk

Spirit of God, You established the dance of Creation;
bring life out of death
bring order out of chaos.
Call us to radical action:
  to care for the web of Creation
  to share our resources justly
  and to work for the renewal of our Mother, Earth.
Amen.

The Diocesan Environment Group has produced special prayers they have produced on Advent Sunday, which falls on the eve of the Summit. Bishop Nicholas urges all Churches in the Diocese to use them. Read and print off the prayers here.

A Prayer by Brother Trevor Huddleston, CR
G
od Bless Africa;
Guard her children;
Guide her leaders
And give her peace, for Jesus Christ's sake.
Amen

Prayer is central to our link with the church in Sudan. Often, the first things that we are asked for in any situation are prayers, given in a true spirit of fellowship.

We operate a diocesan-wide prayer network which works via e-mail. Regular monthly prayer requests are sent to anyone who would like to receive them. If you would like to join our prayer network or log a prayer request, contact the prayer co-ordinator by e-mailing sudan.prayer@salisbury.anglican.org

Syria

A Prayer for Reconciliation in Syria
God of history,
Witness of the struggles within families;
we pray for the divided family of Syria
as brother fights against brother,
and sister rejects sister.
We pray for those whose love of neighbour
has been destroyed in the bitterness of enmity.
May fear be submerged in compassion.
May distrust be diluted by hope,
as a vision of peace illuminates
darkened minds and hate-filled hearts.
We pray in the name of Christ,
our source of light and love.
Amen.

Pause

You may like to pause for a moment, whatever you are doing, and remember God’s presence with you now.

What is before us in life we know not, but this we know:
That all things are ordered with unerring wisdom and unbounded love by You, our God. Grant us all in things to see Your hand;
Through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
- Charles Simeon
