Week beginning 19th May 2013
for General Assembly - opening Saturday 18th May
Heavenly Father we know that vital decisions will be taken at the General Assembly which will affect every congregation and those whom we serve.
that the Holy Spirit may be poured out on our six Councils, their Committees, and our 850 Commissioners as they listen to and debate over 30 reports.
We pray that the hearts and minds of all who hear and make decisions may be guided by the Holy Spirit to choose the path that You want Your Church to follow.
In Jesus’ Name we ask this. Amen.
Week commencing 26th May 2013
Bagatelle Nursing Home
Loving Heavenly Father,
We pray for all the residents in Bagatelle Care Home
May each one know a real sense of security, comfort, and companionship.
Help all to retain their happy memories of past days.
Be with the family members who have to show their care from afar.
Keep them still aware and at ease knowing that their loved ones are safe.
Thank you for the skill and loving care shown by the members of staff
in all that they do with and for each resident.
Bless them as they continue in learning how best to administer their service.
We offer thankful prayers for the Society which is responsible for upkeep and also in many personal ways to the residents. Amen
Church Hymnary 4 – No. 165
Praise to the Lord for the joys of the earth;
cycles of season and reason and birth,
contrasts in outlook and landscape and need,
challenge of famine, pollution, and greed.
Praise to the Lord for the progress of life:
cradle and grave, bond of husband and wife,
pain of youth growing and wrinkling of age,
questions in step with experience and age.
Praise to the Lord for his care of our kind;
faith for the faithless and sight for the blind,
healing, acceptance, disturbance and change,
all the emotions through which our lives range.
Praise to the Lord for the carpenter’s son,
dovetailing worship and work into one:
tradesman and teacher and vagrant and friend,
Source of all life in this world without end.
