We see around us at this time a beautiful change in this world. Every day we see those showing gratitude in so many ways to those who put their lives at risk for all. We see the friendship of neigbours grow, we see the simple tasks of helping someone grow to levels we have not seen before in our lifetimes. We see caring and love grow and grow. Dear Jesus, I ask somehow that all can see the beauty that is growing all around us in this challenging time and I pray we all can feel this so strongly that once this crisis is over we will never want to let this Love and friendship go and we can all make the world a better place to live in. Amen.
As the planes have landed the power and gift of prayers have soared. As the world in many ways has slowed down so many have had time, at last, to think about the simple and most important things in life. Too many had only just thought about themselves but now all see the few who risk their lives for all of us.
A time of contemplation, a time of looking around this small world and realizing how precious it is and how we need to look after it and each other. A time to think of our Lord Jesus and what he did for us, what he gave us, what sacrifice he made for us.
Let us all help all those we can with the power of prayer, the power of friendship and to smile to all we meet in our lives and even the power of a phone call to someone who is lonely. Every little thing we do however small can make the world a better place.
Thinking of you all.
Let us pray at this time for friendship to grow in our world. At a time where we need our friends so much, let us not forget those who really need them now at this time. Whether you are putting your life on the line to help others or at home in self-isolation, loneliness can hit hard and a friend can be the cure. Dear Lord help us all to be more friendly to all we come across. A simple smile, a phone call or an act of kindness can make someone’s day.
We pray that somehow everyone can feel that there is a friend for them today and we thank you for being everyone’s best friend and know you are always holding our hand. Amen.
Paying together tonight was at 8pm but as I am sure we would all like to hear the Queen. Please can we all pray together tonight at 7.30pm this week.
Let us pray at this time of change for the world that we all can use the gift of prayer to help all those in our thoughts. We pray for strength for all those in NHS and the front line workers helping all those around them. As they are following the example of Jesus Christ who walked the earth plane and helped all those who he came across.
Let us pray that all those who suddenly have time for reflection on their hands and for a short time have escaped the madness of a world where the really important things seemed to have been forgotten. May we all see and understand the importance of the simple things of life, our families, our children, how we treat our world and how to love each other.
Jesus taught us the beauty of the simple things of life let us pray that somehow we have the courage to follow his words and example.
Let us pray at this time that the barriers around this world build by man, the barriers around countries, the barriers around towns and the barriers we all have built up around ourselves may be broken so that the Love, Peace, Healing and Comfort that Jesus is trying to send to us all every second of the day can get through.
God gave us the gift of free will. May we ask for the strength to use it wisely to help others. Amen.
Nerina has been praying every Sunday at 8pm for our congregation and so many more at this very difficult time. We have decided that it would be lovely for as many as possible to pray together at 8pm on a Sunday which is when we would normally be practicing hands-on healing in our church. Let us all at this time pray to our Lord Jesus for his healing to be given to all those in our thoughts. May they all be blessed with love and peace. We will do this if we can every week until our church can open again.
My thought and prayers are with you all. I have been asked if we can have a healing book/page which is a great idea. If you send me the names of those who wish to be added to our healing prayers, I will then add them to the bottom of our healing page on our website. We will pray for them every day. Simply send their names to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Take care Rob Harvey
My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very difficult time. We all need somehow to stay calm and yet be realistic about what is going on around us and around the world. When I see all the stories of those helping their neighbours and those in the world putting themselves at risk to help others then we all can see there is beauty in this world. Hard to take in the different lives we all have, from those self isolating looking for something to do to pass the time to those who work in the NHS risking everything they have to help others.
I pray, that somehow the peace and beauty of our Lord Jesus Christ can break through the barriers we build around us so we may all be calm in this trying time. I ask Jesus to send his perfect love to all in this world, to those who are suffering, to those who are caring for others, to those who make the decisions, to those who pray so much for others and to the children of the world who are the future and bring us all now a simple beauty which cannot be put into words.
Our Church hall is always very busy during the week and booked most weekends as well. With this in mind and the coronavirus spreading around the UK I have made the decision to postpone services. I do apologize for this decision as I know how much our Church means to so many of the congregation but after taking advice I believe we would be taking an unnecessary risk running our church at this stage of the outbreak. Please do call me if you have any questions at all.
