Partakers Friday Prayers

7 June 2019

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!

A prayer of John the Elder of Dalyatha
O Christ, the ocean of forgiveness,
Allow me to wash off in you the dirt I am clothed in,
So that I may become resplendent in the raiment of your holy light.
Amen

A prayer of the Romanian Orthodox Church
O Heavenly Comforter, Spirit of truth,
present in all places and filling all things;
Treasury of blessings and Giver of life:
Come and dwell in us,
Cleanse us from every impurity,
And of your goodness, save our souls.
Amen

A prayer of Dag Hammarskjold
Give me a pure heart, O God - that I may see you,
A humble heart, O God - that I may hear you,
A heart of love, O God - that I may serve you,
A heart of faith, O God - that I may abide in you.
Amen

A prayer of WHH Aitken
Lord,
Take my lips and speak through them;
Take my mind and think through it;
Take my heart and set it on fire for you.
Amen

A prayer of Bishop Gavin Hamilton
O God, we humbly beseech you
To purify our hearts from all vain, worldly and sinful thoughts,
And so prepare our souls to worship you this day acceptably,
with reverence and godly fear.
Set our affections on things above all the day long,
And give us grace to receive thy Word which we shall hear
into honest and good hearts, and bring forth fruit with patience;
For the sake of Jesus Christ our Saviour.
Amen

Partakers Friday Prayers!

31st May 2019

 

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

Partakers Friday Prayers!

24th May 2019

 

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!


Lord, enable me to love You
with all my soul,
my mind and my heart;
and to love my neighbours,
friends and enemies as myself.
~~~~~
Lord, protect me
from evil people and demons,
from impure passions
and all unseemly things.
~~~~~
Lord, You know all things;
Lord, I desire Your goodness;
Lord, let Your will be done, not mine, be done
for You are blessed forever.
~~~~~
For I ask this O Father
in the name of your Son Jesus
and in the power of the ever indwelling Holy Spirit. Amen.
~~~~~


A prayer of John Chrysostom

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!

Lord, because you have made me,
I owe you the whole of my love;
because you have redeemed me, I owe you the whole of myself;
because you have promised so much, I owe you my whole being.
Moreover, I owe you as much more love than myself as you are greater than I,
for whom you gave yourself and to whom you promised yourself.

I pray you, Lord,
make me taste by love what I taste by knowledge;
let me know by love what I know by understanding.
I owe you more than my whole self,
but I have no more,
and by myself I cannot render the whole of it to you.
Draw me to you, Lord, in the fullness of your love.
I am wholly yours by creation;
make me all yours, too, in love.
Amen

(A prayer of Anselm 1033-1109)

Partakers Friday Prayers

3rd May 2019

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!

A Morning Prayer of the Ancient Syrian Clementine Church

O my God,
You are the unsearchable abyss of peace,
the ineffable sea of love,
the fountain of blessings,
and the bestower of affection!
You are the God who sends peace to those that receive it;
open to us this day the sea of Your love,
and water us with the plenteous streams from the riches of Your grace.

O great God!
Make us children of quietness, and heirs of peace.
Kindle in us the fire of Your love;
sow in us Your fear;
strengthen our weakness by Your power;
bind us closely to You
and to each other in one firm bond of unity.

We ask this o God our Father
Through the power of the Holy Spirit living within us
And in the name of Jesus Christ!
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!

A prayer for faith and courage of John Wycliffe

  That is why, for Christ’s sake,
I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.
For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:10

O loving Christ draw me, weak as I am, to your side,
for if you do not draw me, I can never follow you.
Give me a brave spirit, so that it may always stand ready and strong.
And when my flesh is weak,
let your grace go before me,
come beside me,
and follow after me,
for without you,
I can do nothing — least of all suffer pain or death.
Grant me a fearless heart,
a true faith, firm hope, and a perfect love,
so that for your sake
I may lay down my life with patience and joy.
Amen

A prayer of Augustine


Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit,
that my thoughts may all be holy.

Act in me, O Holy Spirit,
that my work, too, may be holy.

Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit,
that I love but what is holy.

Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit,
to defend all that is holy.

Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit,
that I always may be holy.

Amen.
