Prayer for the month
Two Prayers for September:
Firstly for Schools:
Lord God, we pray for our young people and for their schools and teachers. We pray for them all in the midst of the pressures of modern life and modern expectations. We pray that there may still be joy in learning and delight in teaching, that our schools may be creative places where our children can discover the beginnings of their path through life. And we pray that in all their learning there may yet be space to recognise you and the truth of your love, in Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Secondly, a prayer for the Who Cares? initiative in Suffolk:
Almighty Father, we pray for Suffolk residents who hurt in life, that many may find a channel of healing and relief through this campaign. Lord God, you know the misfortunes that befall us all, and that if people can turn to you then there can be a rediscovery of hope. We thank you that you welcome people in all their troubles, and we pray for the ‘Who Cares?’ process. We pray for all who respond to invitations, and all who come into contact with them from the churches, that once again people may know your power to heal and to change lives, for your great Name's sake, Amen.
