Danger – 8th June 2016

Lord, if I am in any kind of danger today, please protect me. Keep me from doing anything stupid or from saying anything nasty or irresponsible. Keep me from blaming other people for mistakes for which I am responsible, and show me how to help other people to see how they can move forward from problems. I ask it in Jesus’ name. AMEN

The migration crisis – 7th June 2016

Lord, I pray for those who are working in the migration crisis around the Mediterranean Sea. Help those involved in manning the boats to do so with great care and not to exploit people in vulnerable situations. Guide politicians by giving them compassion and bring a speedy and lasting solution to the problem. In Christ’s name. AMEN

Migrating to other countries – 6th June 2016

Lord, I pray today for those people migrating to other countries, and especially those crossing dangerous seas in overloaded boats. Protect them even within the hazards they are facing. Help the ties of family love to hold together those moving as families. Bring them to a safe place and help them to settle with courage. In Christ I ask it.  AMEN

SERVANTHOOD

“(Jesus) said, ‘If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all’.”

Mark 9:35 NIV

“In The Beloved Captain by Donald Hankey, he described how this officer cared for his men after a route march. ‘We all knew instinctively that he was our superior – a man of finer fibre than ourselves. Probably that was why he could be so humble without loss of dignity. No trouble of ours was too small for him to attend to. When the route marches began and our feet were blistered and sore, you would have thought that they were his own feet from the trouble he took. After a march there was always an inspection of feet. But with him it was no mere routine. He came into our room, and, if anyone had a sore foot he would kneel down on the floor and look at it as carefully as if he had been a doctor. Then he would prescribe, and the remedies were at hand, being carried by a sergeant. If a blister had to be lanced, he would lance it himself there and then, to make sure it was done with a clean needle and that no dirt was allowed to get in. There was no affectation about this, no striving after effect. It was simply that he felt our feet were important, and that we were pretty careless. So he saw to the matter himself. There was in our eyes something almost religious about it. It seemed to have a touch of the Christ about it, and we loved and honoured him the more” (W. Barclay, The Gospel of Mark, p 163).

And Jesus said that servanthood was the hallmark of discipleship.
