Prayer can be words or silence,
it can use written texts or be extempory,
it can be “out loud” or “in our hearts”,
it should involve listening to God
as well as talking to him.
Above all, prayer should be the foundation of all that we do as Christians and as Parishes. Therefore we hold a Prayer Lunch most weeks - all are welcome to these (see our groups and diary pages for more details).
If you would like us to pray for you (or someone or something that you care about) please contact one of the clergy (see our Contacts page). Please note that these prayer requests will be used only among the parish clergy unless you make it clear that they are to be included in our public services.
we worship you in towns and villages where sea meets land
and ask that our churches and fellowships be places where
earth meets heaven and people meet God;
may your Holy Spirit delight us like warm sand under bare feet
and protect us like dunes ranged against the storms;
in the name of him who walked and taught on land, beach and sea,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven,
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
For someone who is ill
Lord Jesus Christ,
For someone who is grieving
O Heavenly Father,
For God's help in our life
Lord, help me to remember
O Lord, support us all the day long
Living in God's love
May I love you in all things,
and above all things.
May I reach the joy which You
have prepared for me in Heaven.
Nothing is good that is against Your will
and all that is good comes from Your hand.
Place in my a heart a desire to please You,
and fill my mind with thoughts of Your love,
so that I may grow in your wisdom
and enjoy peace. Amen.
For help in worship and prayer
O God of truth,
At the end of the day
Lighten our darkness
