Prayers from Roots website
Jesus said: ‘No one has greater love than this,
Lord Jesus, we come from separate houses,
Creator God, you have called us to worship you,
God of relationships,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
together and as one,
you draw us into friendship with you that we may draw others.
You command us to love as you have love,
that we might inspire others.
You fill our hearts with the passion of your heart,
that we might serve others.
You are the truest of friends, the most faithful friend,
the most enduring – and we praise you for all you are and more.
Dear Lord, your love is so precious;
You have commanded us to love others;
when their lives have been difficult
You have shared with us your ministry of welcome;
God of hope and healing:
God of all,
we give you thanks for the gift of friendship:
for the giving and the receiving;
for the opportunities and the challenges;
for the laughter and the tears;
for the conversations and the silence;
for the moments and the memories.
Draw us deeper into your love,
and bless us with the confidence
to proclaim Jesus as our dearest friend,
teacher and Saviour.
We ask this in his name.
Almighty God, we pray for the needs of the people and situations
Lord Jesus, we rejoice
