Friday Prayers

 

 Prayers for Refugees...

Today on Partakers we are praying a prayer from the Church of England for refugees worldwide. As we know, Jesus our Lord, was a refugee when a baby, as Joseph & Mary escaped to Egypt with him. Come on in, download the mp3 and pray with us!

Heavenly Father,
you are the source of all goodness, generosity and love.


We thank you for opening the hearts of many
to those who are fleeing for their lives.
Help us now to open our arms in welcome,
and reach out our hands in support.
That the desperate may find new hope,
and lives torn apart be restored.


We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ Your Son, Our Lord,
who fled persecution at His birth
and at His last triumphed over death.
Amen

Partakers Friday Prayers

We pray together and when Christians pray together, from different nations, different churches and different denominations - that reveals Church unity! Come! Let us pray together!

Behold, Lord,
I am an empty vessel that needs to be filled.
My Lord, fill it.
I am weak in the faith;
strengthen me.
I am cold in love;
warm me and make me fervent,
that my love may go out to my neighbour.
I do not have a strong and firm faith;
at times, I doubt
and am unable to trust You altogether.

O Lord, help me.
Strengthen my faith and trust in you.
In You I have sealed the treasure of all I have.
I am poor;
you are rich
and came to be merciful to the poor.
I am a sinner;
you are upright.
With me, there is an abundance of sin;
in You is the fullness of righteousness.
Therefore, I will remain with you,
of whom I can receive,
but to whom I may not give.

Amen

(A prayer of Martin Luther)

A prayer of Bonaventure

Lord Jesus,

as God’s Spirit came

down and rested upon you, may

the same Spirit rest upon and be within us.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

 O Yahweh,

Grant us the gift of

understanding, by which your

precepts may enlighten our minds.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

O Jehovah,

Grant us counsel,

by which we may follow in your

footsteps on the path of righteousness.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

O Great God,

grant us courage,

by which we may ward off

the Enemy’s attacks.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

O Sovereign God,

grant us knowledge.

by which we can distinguish

good from evil.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

O Merciful God,

grant us piety,

bywhich we may acquire

compassionate hearts.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

O Holy God,

grant us fear, by which

we may draw back from evil

and submit to what is good.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

O ineffable God

made known through Jesus,

grant us wisdom,

that we may taste fully the

life-giving sweetness of your love.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

For we ask this O God our Father,

In the power of the Holy Spirit who lives within us

Through the Son who died and rose again!

Amen.

Partakers Friday Prayers

19 February 2018

for the Persecuted Church Worldwide

 

We pray together and when Christians pray together, from different nations, different churches and different denominations - that reveals Church unity! Come! Let us pray together!

 

Prayers for the Persecuted Church

Sovereign God, we worship you and acknowledge that you know all of those who suffer in your name because they follow you. We remember those who are imprisoned for their faith and ask that they would join with the Apostle Paul to see that even though they remain captive, their chains have furthered the gospel, not frustrated it. May they inspire and embolden their fellow believers to speak the word of God more courageously and fearlessly. Amen

God of all comfort, for those who are tortured both in body and mind, give them the grace to endure and to see their suffering as part of following in Christ’s footsteps. Merciful God, for those asked to pay the ultimate price; who are martyred because of their love for you, may they truly know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death. Amen

Father God, for those who are widowed and orphaned may they know the comfort that comes from your promised presence even when they walk through the valley. May they be strengthened by your Spirit, enabling them to rejoice with the psalmist as they proclaim that the LORD will not abandon them in death. Amen

Heavenly Father, we ask that you would make us ever mindful of our brothers and sisters around the world who need us to stand with them as they suffer in your name. Teach us what it means to overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony; we pray that we would not love our lives so much as to shrink from death.

We ask these things O Father, through the name of Your Son, Jesus and in the power of the Holy Spirit who lives within us.
Amen
