Praying Together

Praying Together

Psalm 139:13-18
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
    and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
    Your workmanship is marvellous — how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
    as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
    Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
    before a single day had passed.
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
    They cannot be numbered!
I can’t even count them;
    they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
    you are still with me!

A prayer for today
Wondrous God, author of life,
you fashioned us in your likeness
and breathed into us
the life which is your own.
Be with those whose special care
is the health of mind and body.
Fill their hearts with awe
for the life which is your gift
and sustain them daily in your service,
that their hands may bring to others
the comfort of your healing touch.

Hear us as we bring You our deepest needs
in the words of the Lord’s Prayer:
Our Father,
who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.

Being Intergenerational

Being Intergenerational

At Brightons Parish Church we’re trying to become truly “intergenerational”. It’s not straightforward and it’s not easy. As we work on this we will have successes and sometimes it will be less successful however, with prayer and being open to God’s leading, we will continue to make progress!
