Tuesday prayer

A local newspaper may be used
as a focal point for worship

Listening to my neighbours’ joy and pain, I come to you O God
God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.

 

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall
into the heart of the sea, though the waters roar and foam and the
mountains quake with their surging.
Psalm 46:1-3

 

Voice 1 : Gather your people to you, O God,
               as a hen gathers her chicks.
All :         Call us again to the love of your name,
               that we might find in your ways hope eternal.

 

God is within the city, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day
Psalm 46:5

 

Read Jeremiah 33:10-16; Reflect on God's presence with us; Pray for your local community; Pray for Shechem community

 

God of Love, God of Peace
This fractured world
Cries out in pain
Burns deep into my soul
And challenges me
To make a difference

God of Love, God of Peace
Create within me
A heart for people
A desire for change
For new beginnings
To start this day

 

Voice 1 : Gather your people to you, O God,
               as a hen gathers her chicks.
All :         Call us again to the love of your name,
               that we might find in your ways hope eternal.

 

The Lord Almighty is with us, the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Psalm 46:11
