THOUGHT For the Month

When we speak God hears us, when we pray God listens.
Our prayers are always answered but not always in the way we expect.

Prayer Request FormWe are a caring, sharing church family and we invite you to share your thoughts and concerns with us by making a Prayer Request.

"God understands every human language. Remaining close to him in silence is already prayer: your lips remain closed but your heart is speaking to him. And, by the Holy Spirit, Christ prays in you more than you can imagine."
Brother Roger of Taizé

Thought for the Month

Father God, we thank you for the warmth of the sun on our skin but are also mindful not to forget the rainy days also.  We know that both are needed in balance to allow the beauty of your world to come through, the sun and rain are a close partnership that have brought the flowers into bloom and the trees into fruit.

As we meander through the marvellous world, allow us too to be a close partnership with you, Lord.  We pray that we are open to your guidance and presence with use throughout this season.

Father God we pray for those who need to feel that close partnership with you a little more keenly – those who may or may not be known to us but are surely known to you. 

As we turn our thoughts to others, both at home and abroad, help us to know the way that you are guiding us, shaping us and renewing us.

Father God we pray for our church here at Palace Avenue and our wider circuit and Christian church.  Help our leaders to make the right decisions and guide our preachers to preach the message that you know we need to hear.

Amen

"Prayer is a serene force at work within human beings, stirring them up, transforming them, never allowing them to close their eyes in the face of evil, of wars, of all that threatens the weak of this world. From it we draw energy to wage other struggles - to enable our loved ones to survive, to transform the human condition, to make the earth a fit place to live in."
Brother Roger of Taizé
