Hastings, Bexhill and Rye Circuit Prayer for 2019-20


The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission.

It does this through Worship, Learning and Caring, Service and Evangelism.

We pray that our Worship may joyfully glorify God and be meaningful for people of all ages and backgrounds and so enable everyone to encounter and experience God's love for themselves. May God's Holy Spirit inspire and encourage our preachers and worship leaders as they prepare and lead worship and enable them to be faithful to their calling.

We thank God for the opportunities for Learning and Caring for one another through bible studies, fellowship and prayer groups across our churches. We pray that through mutual support and care we may learn more about God, grow in faith and become more like Jesus day by day.

We pray that God will help us to always be open to the needs of those around us and that we may make the best use of our premises and money as we respond in loving Service to our neighbours and the worldwide community and challenge injustice wherever it is found.

God you call us to Evangelise and make more disciples but we are often hesitant and unsure what to do or say. We pray that as individuals and church communities we may become more confident in sharing our faith with others in word and deed and that the Holy Spirit will lead many to a living faith in Christ.

God you call us all to your service. Guide and help us to discover and use our own unique gifts and talents and make the most of the opportunities that you give us to live out our discipleship in worship and mission in the coming year.

Amen.
