Help us, dear Lord, as each day dawns anew – to draw aside in reverence and spend quality time with You – to sit in quiet reflection, knowing You are there – waiting to hear our requests for people everywhere.  Help us this year, as we begin each new day – to be more like Jesus in what we do and say.”  (Liz Lyon)

  • SUNDAY – Worship:  Let us praise God, for He is glorious – let us give thanks, for He is the source of all good things – let us worship Him now, for He is the Lord of glory – let us adore Him, for He is the Lord.
  • MONDAY – Our Church: Thank God for the Church buildings in which we meet, and pray for all who will use them this year – that they may feel they belong to the family of our Church and know that God loves them.

  • FRIDAY – Our Community: Pray for all those involved in education – those who teach, those who are school governors, on school councils, and those involved in the day-to-day running of schools and colleges – that they may show commitment and sensitivity to the young people in their care.
  • SATURDAY – Sharing our faith: Pray that in the power of the Holy Spirit, we may have the courage to share Jesus with others – that we may share the news that Jesus is alive today and that there is new life in Him.
