Prayers

Led by Jean Balcombe.

Faithful God,
In the high and low points in our lives,
in the mundane, in the exciting,
in the strange and concerning,
you are here in the risen Jesus saying,
‘Peace be with you’.

Risen Jesus,
when we are startled and frightened
by news that is too much to bear,
by being isolated and alone,
overcome our fear with your love
as you come and say,
‘Peace be with you’.

Risen Jesus,
when we are troubled or upset
by the suffering of loved ones,
by grieving without close companionship,
by loss of work or income,
because we just need a hug,
hug us as you come and say,
‘Peace be with you’.

Risen Jesus,
when doubts arise and the tide is low
so that you seem far away,
when we doubt our capacity to cope,
when we have doubts about the future,
reassure us as you come and say,
‘Peace be with you’.

Risen Jesus,
when we find joy and amazement
in an unexpected phone or video call,
in a swallow or two swooping by,
in hearing laughter through an open window,
in a surprise cake on our doorstep,
help us believe that you share
in every part of our lives and come and say,
‘Peace be with you’.

We say together the Lord’s Prayer:

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and forever.

Amen.

Prayer Ministry and Support

Whilst we can’t pray in person, people are still available to pray for you.

The contact for the Prayer Sheet and Prayer Chain is Jean Balcombe:  prayer@christchurch-clevedon.org.uk 07810 027820

Make use of your homegroup contacts, and there is also a large group of volunteers across Clevedon to help those self-isolating – Clevedon Mutual Aid.

This is a very strange, unnerving time, and unsurprisingly people will feel stranded.  The Church, as the people, are still here for you.  If you need to be connected do get in touch through our contact webpage which is still being monitored.
