Alton Webteam: January 2016
Prayer Sheet from Kate Wilson
Last Sunday, many from our usual congregation in the Circuit, came together for united worship, led by our President of Conference Revd Steve Wild- a rare and uplifting experience in the midst of so many problems and atrocities in our world. Renewing our Covenant promise was a very touching part of the Service and the Communion took on an even deeper meaning and offered comfort for troubled minds.
Let us, therefore, remember those known and unknown to us, who are in need of our prayers at this time: David; Peter & Jenny; Jessica & Stephen; Doris; Thelma; Aileen; Ian & Wendy; Alex; Jacinta; Luis; Bryan & Sylvie
Living God, in Christ you make all things new. Transfer the poverty of our nature by the riches of your grace, And in the renewal of our lives, make known your heavenly glory; Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
Almighty God, by whose grace alone we are accepted and called to your service, strengthen us by your Spirit. Make us worthy of our calling; Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
(Collects for this Sunday are from the Methodist Worship Book.)
Finally, use the words of StF 507 (prayer of St Francis) to focus our minds on the year ahead:
Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me bring your love,
Where there is injury, your pardon, Lord,
And where there's doubt, true faith in you.
