Prayer Requests

23.7.22 Hello from Haydn,

Please pray for my brother Gareth who is due to have a major operation on Tuesday in Birmingham. He has liver cancer.

Thank you.

We pray for the extremely grave situation in Ukraine. We feel so helpless: what can we do but pray?  Help us not to feel despair and hopelessness, but to trust you in everything.

We pray for those who have recently lost loved ones. May they know the comfort of your Presence.

We remember those who have recently died, 

We pray for all those in isolation struggling with depression and anxiety. Help them to find a calm and secure place where they are loved.

Dear Heavenly Father, grant calmness and control of thought to those who are facing uncertainty and anxiety: let their heart stand fast, believing in the Lord. Be all things to all people, knowing each one and their prayers, each house and its need, for the sake of Jesus Christ. Amen

Please pray for those at home with young children; for patience, resilience and creativity, that they may enjoy this additional time together.

We pray for all who are suffering the effects of Coronavirus and those who are alleviating their suffering.

Singing Bowl

Begin the song exactly where you are,
Remain within the world of which you’re made.
Call nothing common in the earth or air,

Accept it all and let it be for good.
Start with the very breath you breathe in now,
This moment’s pulse, this rhythm in your blood

And listen to it, ringing soft and low.
Stay with the music, words will come in time.
Slow down your breathing. Keep it deep and slow.

Become an open singing-bowl, whose chime
Is richness rising out of emptiness,
And timelessness resounding into time.

And when the heart is full of quietness
Begin the song exactly where you are.
