Prayers for July


The prayers are taken from the Book of Comfort.

Help us to remember that our prayers are rain drops which trickle into ditches and streams and run into the great river of ceaseless prayer, which flows to the ocean that ebbs and flows and rises to the heart and mind of God, through our Saviour Jesus Christ our Lord.

Give me a mind that is not bored 

That does not whimper, whine or sigh. 

Don’t let me worry overmuch 

About the fussy thing called I. 

Give me a sense of humour, Lord 

Give me the grace to see a joke, 

To get some happiness from life 

And pass it on to other folk.

Prayers for August

The Mary Sumner Prayer

All this day, O Lord, let me touch as many lives as possible for thee; and every life I touch, do thou by thy spirit quicken, whether through the word I speak, the prayer I breathe, or the life I live. Amen.


And a prayer from our Book of Comfort written by Jean Haste of Trimley St Martin:

Loving Father, please help us to be helpful and kind to all we meet 

I feel you have sent us this (COVID-19) to make us all think of other people and not so    much for ourselves. 

Please lead us the way you want us to go and help us to be able to follow you. 

This I ask in Jesus’ name.
