Cycle of Prayer

Diocesan Prayer

As we pursue our vision of a bigger church making a bigger difference more people knowing Jesus more justice in the world we have introduced a diocesan prayer. Please pray it and share it in churches across our diocese as we offer our sustained prayer to Jesus.


Loving Father,
by your grace we long to see
more people knowing Jesus,
and more justice in your world.
Help us to live as your disciples in the power of the Spirit and to work to your praise and glory.
Amen.

Deanery Prayers for the Month

Sefton North Deanery
Almighty Father, give us grace and strength this day to build up your church in love for the world, in the making of disciples and to equip the saints for the work of ministry. Plant your hope deep within us. Open our eyes to a fresh vision of your kingdom. Give us wisdom for the common task. Draw us and all your Church deeper into Christ, our foundation and cornerstone, that we may work together as one body, in the power of the Spirit and for the sake of your glory. Amen.

Sefton South Deanery
Loving God, Father of our Lord Jesus, pour your Spirit of Inspiration on the churches and ministries of the Sefton South Deanery, as we seek to minister to those you entrust to us. Guide our thinking to discern your will and to follow the way you are calling us to walk, that as a community we may step out together, generously living your love, that through faith and service we may instruments of transformation in the building of your Kingdom. Amen.

Prayer for Bishop's in Mission

Lord, lead us by your Spirit to be witnesses of the promise of Christ. Your salvation is a gift to all who come to you and accept it. Help us to go out in confidence to share your Gospel with our friends, neighbours and communities.

Help us prepare for this time of outreach and mission with our Bishops, so our church can reach and bless all those in our Parish, and be effective witnesses to our community.
Amen
