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

Widnes Deanery
God of mission, who alone brings growth to your church, send your Holy Spirit to bring vision to our planning, wisdom to our actions, faith to our lives, hope to our communities, and love to our hearts, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Winwick Deanery
Lord, we thank you for the parishes and churches in this deanery. We pray that guided by your Spirit we may be united to grow in Christ and to serve our communities with love and grace. Keep us fixed on you and your purposes, today and forever. Amen.

St Helens Deanery
Heavenly Father, we thank you for sending your son, Jesus Christ, into the world to save us. Guide, encourage and equip the people of all your churches in the St Helens Deanery as we obey your command to go and make disciples, and to show your love in words and deeds in our communities. May your Spirit give us wisdom and courage as we seek to reshape our deanery for mission and that we may know God's guidance. 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
