Lancashire Methodist District

Praying for Lancashire

It has been some weeks since I wrote Praying 21 which has been used across the District.  I don’t think I am alone in finding this is probably the time to try something different. Here is a new offering to help you pray at nine pm. Keep  praying 21 but if you want a new format here it is.

An Explanation:

I have a great fondness for acrostic prayers, where each line builds into something. In the prayer handbook I chose Respond here I have chosen Lancashire.

In this time across our county and country we pray for the following for the

L

eaders of our government at national and local level.

A

gricultural community, for farmers and farm workers and all who produce our food.

N

ational Health Service and all who work in it and all other key workers.

C

are Homes their staff and residents.

A

irlines, and all who work in travel, hospitality and deliveries.

S

chools, colleges and universities, pupils, teachers and students.

H

omes of our loved ones we cannot be with at the moment

I

solated and the lonely and the unwell.

R

emembering of those we have lost. 

E

ncouragement as we emerge from this in a better shape to be servants of the gospel.

Gracious God, we offer these and all our prayers in the name of Jesus. Amen.

I know there are many creative people across our District who can write wonderful prayers. Here is a challenge. If you have a prayer to offer for us to use in our 2100 prayers, send it to the District Office and I will see if we can include new prayers in the coming weeks.
