Prayer of the Month, May 2021

God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father,

We give you thanks for the advent of spring and the newness of life and fresh   opportunities  that  it  brings.  We   pray    for  those  who  are  experiencing difficult times of loss, isolation and uncertainty and ask that they may know the comfort and calm of Your  Presence through Jesus Christ, the Light of the World.

We pray that where there are any ‘dead’ things in our lives, dreams, hopes, desires, relationships, that they would be brought back to life to the  honour  and  glory  of  your  Name  through   the  power  of  the Resurrected   Christ.  May  we   also  encounter  You  in  a  such  a heart-warming experience so as to know that our trust is in Christ and Christ alone. 

As we tarry for that which you promised, we look forward with eager anticipation to being baptised, empowered and united with the Holy Spirit, receiving the power and ability to be witnesses of the good news of the kingdom.  In the name of your holy Servant Jesus whom You anointed we pray, Amen.
