Prayers

Looking for accommodation – 21st June 2018

Lord, bless all those who today are looking for accommodation, who have nowhere to live and don’t know what to do. Prompt them to go to the very place that is needing their presence to fill empty space. Guide their footsteps. Direct their wandering and bring them to somewhere they will feel at home. I ask it in Jesus Christ’s name – AMEN.

Keeping calm – 20th June 2018

Lord, I pray today for those who are in a hurry, whose day is so crowded that they have to count every minute in order to get through so much. Help them to keep calm and not to get impatient with those who can’t seem to rush. At the end of the day help them to look back and feel that their effort has been worthwhile. In Christ I ask – AMEN.

Shopkeepers – 19th June 2018

I pray today for shopkeepers and those who serve behind the counters. Help them always to be cheerful, friendly and helpful to customers. When the hours are long and the legs get weary, help them still to be polite, uncomplaining, and full of friendly advice. Help them to be honest and true in all things. I ask it in Christ’s name – AMEN.

Rescue services – 18th June 2018

Lord, I pray today for those people who staff the sea rescue services around our coastline. Thank you for their dedication. Help them to be conscious always of the importance of their work, and to ensure that the maintenance of their equipment is always up to date. Give them courage in all situations. I ask it in Christ’s name – AMEN.

Services of worship – 17th June 2018

I pray today Lord for all the people who assist in the administration of services of worship in your church. I bring before you ushers at the church door welcoming people in, people who are present with preachers in the vestry before services and people who see to the security outside buildings. I ask it in the name of Jesus Christ – AMEN.

Saturday – 16th June 2018

Lord, it is Saturday and I have a day that is different from my working week. Help me to plan it in such a way that I will get important duties attended to and enjoy relaxation from the leisure hours at my disposal. Help me to cherish my off-work time and to be wise and responsible in my stewardship of all time. In Christ’s name – AMEN.

Family members – 15th June 2018

Lord God, I pray for my family members today. May they do their daily work with skill and conscientiousness, producing work that is honest and worthwhile. Keep them from all forms of danger and prevent them from getting involved in any kind of mischief or evil. Help them to be strong and healthy. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ – AMEN.
