Today on the 6th January is the Feast of Epiphany when Christ was revealed to the Gentiles through the visit of the Magi

 

Christ Jesus was revealed in the flesh
and vindicated in the spirit.
He was seen by angels...
and proclaimed among the nations.
Believed in throughout the world,
he was taken up in glory.
This will be made manifest at the proper time
by the blessed and only Sovereign,
Who alone has immortality,
and dwells in unapproachable light.
To the King of kings and Lord of lords
be honour and eternal dominion. Amen

Prayer for Remembrance Sunday

Almighty God, stretch forth your mighty arm to strengthen and protect the armed forces: grant that, meeting danger with courage and all occasions with discipline and loyalty, they may truly serve the cause of justice and peace; to the honour of your holy name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

Prayer for Remembrance Day

 

Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward,
save that of knowing that I do your will.

8th November 2016

Today we commemorate the Saints and Martyrs of England

God, whom the glorious company of the redeemed adore,
assembled from all times and places of your dominion:
we praise you for the saints of our own land
and for the many lamps their holiness has lit;
and we pray that we also may be numbered at last
with those who have done your will
and declared your righteousness;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Jesus said: ‘Love one another, as I love you;
there is no greater love than this,
to lay down your life for your friends.’
Saviour, we hear your call.
Help us to follow.

For 1st July

 

Prayer of Commemoration Eternal God, our refuge and strength, on this day we remember before you all who experienced the battle on the Somme: those who faced the terrible waste and devastation, who fought against all the odds, endured the clinging mud, and the squalor of the trenches. We recall with thanksgiving the loyalty shown to comrades and the bravery of those who overcame their fear, the courage of those who daily faced the pounding of artillery, gun-fire and shrapnel. May we never forget the devastating loss of this battle, the anxiety on the home-front, and the sacrifices that were made. Through our remembrances today, strengthen our resolve to oppose naked aggression, to defend the weak, and to speak your word of peace in times of conflict and insecurity. This we ask in the name of the Prince of peace, our Saviour, Jesus Christ.  

Today is the feast of St Peter and St Paul. As we remember their martyrdom for the Christian faith, both in their unique way, we think about their leadership and example in the early church. 

Almighty God,
whose blessed apostles Peter and Paul
glorified you in their death as in their life:
grant that your Church,
inspired by their teaching and example,
and made one by your Spirit,
may ever stand firm upon the one foundation,
Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Psalm 119 v 1-8

The Glories of God’s Law

Happy are those whose way is blameless,
    who walk in the law of the Lord.
Happy are those who keep his decrees,
    who seek him with their whole heart,
who also do no wrong,
    but walk in his ways.
You have commanded your precepts
    to be kept diligently.
O that my ways may be steadfast
    in keeping your statutes!
Then I shall not be put to shame,
    having my eyes fixed on all your commandments.
I will praise you with an upright heart,
    when I learn your righteous ordinances.
I will observe your statutes;
    do not utterly forsake me.

 

Here is a prayer we wrote at our All Age service 10th January

(based on the Lord's Prayer)

 

Father, Creator We respect your name

We will see you soon,

We will try and do as you ask,

today and always
Please look after us and we pray for enough food to eat,
Accept us and give us another chance when we are not being very good

and all the rubbish that gets between me and you.

Stop us being upset when people are naughty

and hurt us or your world
Help us not to do the things we know to be wrong

and keep us out of trouble and bad company.
Lord, you have created everything that touches our lives.

Always have, always will.

We are grateful for this. Amen
