Let Us Pray For All Those Affected By Hurricane Dorian

As Hurricane Dorian continues to churn off the southeastern coast of the United States bringing with it heavy wind and rain, we are stunned by heartbreaking images of the devastation left in the hurricane’s wake in the Bahamas. We pray for those who lost their lives and for those who must now try to rebuild their shattered island homes. We also pray for people in our own country who are experiencing the effects of the hurricane. May the God of all goodness keep those on the coast free from all harm and safe from the storm.

Holy One, you are our comfort and strength in times of sudden disaster, crisis, or chaos. Surround us now with your grace and peace through storm or earthquake, fire or flood.
By your Spirit, lift up those who have fallen, sustain those who work to rescue or rebuild, and fill us with the hope of your new creation; through Jesus Christ, our rock and redeemer.

Welcome Back Students, Teachers and Staff!

Heavenly Father, We give you our hopes, worries and fears as our lovely child starts school. We pray that you would fill their hearts with excitement and calm their worries with your love. Please go before them, help them make friends, enjoy the activities and build relationships with their teachers and carers. May we learn to entrust them each day into your care, and as we do may they grow in confidence and independence. Father, may joy abound in their hearts as they enter this new exciting season of their lives. In Jesus name.

Happy Labor Day!

Lord, on this Labor Day,

we thank You for the blessing of work.

We ask for strength to complete each day.

We ask for rest when we are weary.

We ask Your guidance for everyone seeking employment,

and we ask that You be with those whose faces

we might never see but who work tirelessly each day

for the good of us all.
