Prayer

As the visible signs of Spring are becoming more apparent, we are reminded of the paradox that God is the same yesterday, today and forever, and yet he is always doing a ‘new thing’! ”See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up, do you not perceive it?’ (Isaiah 43:19).  Let’s ask God to do new things in the lives of individuals, nations and around the globe, and attune our hearts to ‘perceive’ these and draw encouragement and hope from them:
• as we pray for people we know especially: Lord, show your reality to our family members, friends, neighbours, colleagues, and stir in them a desire to know you more.  Help us to spot and join with you in these new revelations/developments.
• as we pray for our nation – for our leaders, for those in authority in government, education, health, the legal system, public services: do something fresh in their hearts and their thinking, and draw them back into relationship with you, and trust in your way of living.  Help us to be faithful in praying for and supporting all those who carry responsibility, and in discerning how to be clear and powerful as ambassadors for your message of love, unity and justice as each opportunity arises.
• as we pray for our world – and ask you to intervene, and bring fresh new seasons of peace, hope, harmony, justice, opportunity in the overwhelming range of difficult circumstances throughout the globe.  Your kingdom come, oh Lord, your will be done increasingly in every nation.
‘Not for us, Lord, not for us, but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.’
