18 th We   pray   today   for   all   who   have   to   make   impossibly   difficult

and   an   awareness   that   you   are   right   there   with   them   now   and
forever.

 

19 th Lord,   thank   you   for   the   blessing   of   sleep,   for   the   time   when
bodies can rest and renew themselves and minds can be still, not
fretting or worrying.  Watch over us as we sleep.

are right, make us easy to live with.” 
Rev. Peter Marshall

The power of God protects me.

 

22 nd “Lord,   help   us   to   listen   to   each   other,   to   be   gentle   with   one
another,   to   forgive   each   other   and   to   be   willing   to   laugh   at
ourselves.”
A. Ashwin

each one of us be a means of healing in our own small corner.

 

24 th Thank   you,   Lord,   for   the   encouragers,   for   the   text   message   or
phone call  out of  the blue,  for a chance word with a neighbour
who asks us how we are and for friends who support us.

 

25 th Loving Lord, we pray today for all who are in the grip of addiction
of any kind.   Free those trapped in repeat patterns of behaviour
and bring them to a place where they can move on.

 

26 th Lord, life goes on but for those who are mourning, the ordinary
world they used to know has changed irrevocably.  Come close to
all who are broken hearted and bring them your peace.

 

27 th Bless to us our weekend activities, the things we do, the people
we meet and the relaxation we find. 

 

28 th Dear Lord, be near to all who are too ill to attend worship today.

 

29 th We pray with thanksgiving for all doctors, nurses and additional
therapists and health professionals.  Lighten their stress, Lord.

 

30 th Dear Lord, we thank you for the faith we have.  Each one has a
different measure because we are different people.   Nurture and
feed that faith in each one of us, that it may grow.

 

31 st Lord as one month ends and another is about to begin help us to
take   a   little   quiet   time   to   reflect   on   where   we   have   been   and
where   we   hope   to   go   in   the   days   ahead,   always   committing
ourselves to you.
