We remember in our prayers all those we know who have lost loved ones recently and all we know who are ill or worried about loved ones, friends or situations. We include in our prayers all that we know who are unwell at this time, in hospital or at home. We think of Rev Peter Bolt, Rev Stephen Hill, Ray Wood & the family of Gracie Cleverdon at this time
We hold in our prayers all those caught up with the ongoing terrorist attacks & violence around the world – most recently in France, Germany & Turkey – those who have lost loved ones, those injured & those emotionally affected by events.
We pray for the Christians throughout Britain & the World Wide Church. We remember those working for peace & stability in Iraq, Syria, Gaza, Turkey, Israel, South Sudan, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Ukraine, Nigeria, West Africa, Libya & many other places around our world.

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.
