Prayer Through The Ages
To the One who can keep us from falling, and bring us safely into his glorious presence, joyful and above reproach, to the only God our Saviour, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, power, and authority, before all ages, now and for ever. Amen.
Based on Jude 24-25 (1st century)

Grant us, O Lord, the will to accomplish all that pleases you; the strength to do all that you command and the reverence to respect all that you have made. Father hear our prayers...
For Mary and Tom Kovoor who ask for prayers for the family of Siby Cherian. Tom’s cousin who passed away unexpectedly last week.
Jesus, you have known us from the beginning of time, you have known us in the depths of our dreams and in the darkness of our shame, you know us as your beloved. Help us to own that core identity more and more in this season of repentance and mercy. Give us the rock-solid assurance of your unwavering faith in us as we seek the same in you.
For those prayers too personal to share with anyone but You.
Lord God, you who breathed the spirit of life within us. Draw out of us the light and life you created.

Help us to use our lives to reflect your glory and to serve others as your son Jesus did.

O Lord, our living God, we praise and bless your holy name. Arisen, commanded and commissioned we live for you. Thank you for redeeming us from a sleep that would have ended in destruction and for offering so much more than we could ever ask for or imagine in our Saviour, Jesus. Breathe your Spirit’s life, love and power into us afresh that we may worthily magnify your holy name, act justly, love boundlessly and humbly walk in step with you. Amen.
