Be Joyful In Hope, Patient In Affliction, Faithful In Prayer

Prayer is an important part of Christian living as it helps us to build our relationship with God; however, it is not always easy to pray, and sometimes God may answer our prayers in unexpected ways.

Prayer was at the heart of all our deliberations as we considered forming our new circuit; and it continues to be so as we move forward in faith. We are grateful to Roy Lorrain-Smith for developing a Circuit prayer network and for providing our monthly prayer column with a short reflection and weekly prayers for the month.

Circuit Prayer

Encircling God,
we pray for the unity of our circuit,
may a spirit of co-operation grow and flourish
between all the churches.

Loving God,
may there be a bond of love between the churches,
that everyone will feel a concern for each other,
no matter to which church they belong.

Empowering God,
may your Holy Spirit enable and direct all that we do,
so that in all things your mission might be ours.

Grant us a wider vision
so that we may be more effective channels of your love in our communities.
In the name of Christ,
