Sunday 19th January
Almighty God, as we move through the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, take away all hatred and prejudice and whatever else may hinder us from being united as Christians. Help us to recognise that there is one Lord, one faith, one church, one God and Father of us all and so unite us in one holy bond of peace, faith and charity.

Gracious God, we pray that your church may be one. Teach us to accept humbly that this unity is a gift of your Spirit and that through this gift we might be changed and transformed to become, day by day, more like your Son Jesus Christ.

Saturday 25th January
Immortal God, we pray for everyone who is hungry today far away or in our local communities. We pray for those who share this earth with us, but for whom hunger is a crippling, life-threatening danger. We pray for those who have nothing and those who have too little to eat.
Heavenly Father, please accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.
At all our Church services we pray for those who are sick, in need and for the bereaved by name. Please do let us know if you would like specific prayer for anyone, and they will be included on this prayer list.
