Prayer for the Week

Sunday 17 February

Lord, come to our throw-away society
and give us a greater care for Your gifts,
that the resources of Your good earth
may be used for the needs of Your family,
and all may have enough;
for your love’s sake.

Sunday 10 February

Lord,
show us where there is loneliness,
that we may take friendship.
Show us where there is neglect,
that we may take kindness.
Show us where there is injustice,
that we may take courageous action.

Wherever individuals are not seen as persons,
may we acknowledge their identity;
and wherever there is alienation,
may we may take reconciliation.
