A prayer of companionship with God

Lord Jesus, in my quiet moments, may I offer my innermost desires and yearnings to you, that I may more and more walk my path in life conscious of you being at my side. Amen.

As we journey on

Lord God,
as we journey towards the goal you set before us,
we see glimpses of who you are,
often too deep and unimaginable
to grasp fully the depth of your being.
What we see and feel spurs us on
in our journey to discover more of you.
Amen.

A prayer of gratitude

I am not worthy, yet you love me, God.
I do not deserve so much and yet I have it.
I have many needs and before you I acknowledge them;
fill my life with your presence,
that others too may come to know your healing balm.
Amen.

As more steps are taken towards a return to normal life

Sometimes, O God, I wish I was on my own, not troubled and disturbed by those around me, not jostled and tussled this way and that, but just left to my own devices. But I am not just me, I am part of the community in which I live. Give me patience with those around me, give me love and compassion for those in need, give me understanding of people who are so different from me and give me, above all else, a yearning to do your will.
Amen.

For all that is entrusted to me

Mighty God, I think about the keys I hold. Each one shows a responsibility of some kind. Thank you for all that you entrust me with. Thank you most of all for Jesus, who gives me the keys of the kingdom. Amen.

For valuing others

Lord, the Pharisees were offended by your words.
You could have been offended by the Canaanite woman’s words.
I ask that, as I go about my business, I will take the time to consider each person I meet as unique, special to you, and worthy of my listening ear.
May I not be offended just because something is out of my comfort zone. Amen.

A prayer for trust and peace

O Lord my God,
you are worthy to be praised.
You are the Son of God who walks on water,
who mesmerises huge crowds with powerful words,
but who also calms a frightened Peter –
and you calm me and give me peace.
Thank you, Lord.
Amen.
