Call to Prayer: Friday 6 November 2020

Let us take a moment to come together and believe in the power of prayer. There is strength and solidarity in prayer that even though we cannot be together physically, we are supporting one another spiritually. Let us join together in our own way and tradition to pray.


Let us thank our God for the gift of life. many have gone but it has pleased the Lord, God Almighty to keep us alive.

Let us remember with thanksgiving those who made the supreme sacrifice for us in time of war,  pray that the offering of their lives may not have been in vain.

Let us remember all those who make our common life secure, for the peace and freedom we enjoy, pray that God will inspire us to commit into building a better society for the generations to come.

Jesus has shown us how great the price of freedom is, by giving His life to deliver us all. Pray that we will dedicate ourselves anew to the cause of justice, freedom and peace; and give us the wisdom and strength to build a better world that will honour and glorify God.

Let us thank the Lord God for the community, for those who share with us in its activities, all who serve its varied interests.  We remember our country, our community at this difficult time, pray that we will discover opportunities to make our own contribution to our community. Help us to learn to be good neighbours, that by love we may serve one another.

It seems that we return to you Lord most easily when we need comfort.
In the shadow of your wings we find respite and relief that feeds our innermost self and renews our soul. Day and night, you are our refuge.

These uncertain days of news conferences and quarantines tempt us to assume the worst for our loved ones, ourselves and our community.
“Pandemic” is a frightening word, and we can easily feel confused or helpless to respond.
Now we are relying on you to lead and guide us, to put our anxiety in its place.
Help us see it as a human response that keeps us conscious of the seriousness of this moment, but do not let it overwhelm our spirit.
Buoyed by your love, we choose each day to let peace reign in us. Breathing deeply of your calm, we repeat, again and again, “You are here.”
Good and gracious Companion, our family and friends need tranquillity and assurance.
Help us to offer them your tenderness.
Those in my community who are suffering need care.
Help us to be generous and to keep contact with the forgotten.
Our world calls for cooperation among national leaders, scientists, health care providers, and all who are instrumental in overcoming this crisis. May our prayers and support be with them all.
We have come back to you, and we will return, knowing that your open arms will never fail.
God of hope, may your love blanket the earth, as you teach us to live more generously today than yesterday. May our anxiety be transformed into love.



Gracious and loving God, we ask that you lift up these prayers and the prayers that we hold in our hearts. Calm our fears and anxiety and be with us through this trying time. Help us to understand the changes in our lives, to accept the things that we cannot control, and to be patient and loving to one another. 

All this we ask through Christ, our Lord. 



Maranatha ! Life is fragile, handle it with prayers
