Traditional Celtic Prayer

Weave a silence, O Lord, on to our lips; weave a silence into our minds; weave a silence within our hearts. Close our ears to distractions; close our eyes to attractions; close our heart to temptations. Amen.
We are on a journey to a place where there is no temple but the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb.

In the meantime, may our worship make true connections between earth and heaven.
We are on a journey to a place where there is no light but the glory of God and the Lamb.

In the meantime, may the light of Christ dispel the darkness in our world, our local communities, our Church and our hearts.
We are on a journey to a place where all nations together will give honour to one Lord.

In the meantime, may we work for peace between peoples of different origins, religions and philosophies, around the world and on our doorstep.

And may the God of light and life and peace bring healing to our world. Amen.

Peter Hancock, Northampton District Chair
A personal prayer

When I ask for the things I do not need, or have no use for – teach me simplicity.

When I seek to do good, and fail in my endeavours – keep me faithful.

When I knock at doors that shut in my face – renew my strength to love and serve you, at all times and in all places. Amen.

The Covenant Service, often celebrated on the first Sunday of the year, is at the heart of Methodists’ devotion and discipleship, and their dedication in working for social justice. In the service the Church joyfully celebrates God’s gracious offer to Israel that “I will be their God and they shall be my people”.
This offer is then extended beyond Israel to all women and men in Jesus Christ, who also provides the supreme example of what it is to live in such a relationship with God.

That relationship primarily involves the corporate life of the community of God’s people (i.e. Israel; the Body of Christ). It is concerned with individuals within that group.

What God offers is a loving relationship. The Covenant is not a contract in which God and human beings agree to provide particular goods and services for each other! It is not something that we have to do to create a relationship with God. God has freely and graciously already made it possible.
Rather, the Covenant is the means of grace by which we accept the relationship and then seek to sustain it. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it. It is not about acquiring a relationship with God, but living within the loving relationship that God has already offered us.

Light of life, you came in flesh,

born into human pain and joy,

and gave us power to be your children.

Grant us faith, O Christ, to see your presence among us,

so that all of creation may sing new songs of gladness

and walk in the way of peace. Amen.
We bless you, Abba, Father,

for you have visited your people

in one like us in all things but sin,

and in human fragility you have revealed

the face of divinity.

Gather into your arms

all the peoples of the world,

so that in your embrace

we may find blessing, peace,

and the fullness of our inheritance

as your daughters and sons. Amen.

Come, O Christ the Light, and illumine our darkness. Come, O Christ the Life, and raise us from death. Come, O Christ the Physician, and heal our wounds. Come, O Fire of Love, consume our sins and kindle within us the flame of your love. Amen.

Dimitri of Rostov (1651-1709)

 

God of all times and each moment,
as we start each day,
whether we are ready and eager,
or anxious and unsure of what the day will bring,
wake us to your call.
In our work,
in the tasks of the home and the routine of business,
whether we are stimulated and fulfilled,
or exhausted and bored,
strengthen us for your labour.
At each day’s end, in recreation and rest,
whether we are full of the day’s good things,
or are weary, foot-sore or lonely,
bring us to rest in your grace.
And at all times and in each moment,
recall us to the knowledge of your sustaining love
made known in Jesus,
in whose name we pray. Amen.

Andrew Pratt has written a hymn of reflection in response to the French shootings of 7-9 January 2015, which he has added to following the tragic events of 13 November 2015:
“Hopeless to help in this violence, this crisis,
here in the focus of bloodshed and fear,
common humanity binds us together,
love at the centre, not hatred’s veneer.

History repeats in a city of beauty,
here amid elegance: danger’s embrace.
Love is our purpose when those filled with hatred
break down relationships, nullify grace.

Give me your hand, then let peace grow between us,
let us rebuild what distrust might destroy.
Now in this moment we’ll make a commitment,
love is the weapon we’ll use and deploy.”
