A prayer of blessing:
May you know Jesus more fully today than ever before. May you grow in grasping Jesus love, more and more. May you show an empty world what God has in store. Amen.
(taken from Together we Pray - Church of Scotland Book)
Our community. May it be a safe place for all who live in the streets of Arden, Carnwadric, Kennishead and Regents Park. Pray God's peace and blessing on homes and lives.
Pray for those who work in the nurseries and schools. We remember the staff of Thornlaw Nursery, Jimmy Dunnachie Family Learning Centre, St Vincent's Primary School and Ashpark Primary School. Give thanks for the good relationships that the church has with these establishments.
Join in prayer for anyone in the church family who is unwell at this time and give thanks for Alister, our Locum, and he visits those who are in hospital, in care homes and those who are housebound.
Remember the community garden led by Paul, the Urban Roots Worker. As spring arrives more work is being done in the garden by the volunteers who meet on a Thursday. Thank God for this lovely space that we can enjoy.
Remember Ewa as she plans the Christian Aid activities over the next few weeks. Give thanks to God for the work of Christian Aid.
