Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is  God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”    

1 Thess 5:16-18

Exalt the Lord who…

  • is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end
  • became flesh and lived among us
  • gave us the right to become children of God

Give thanks to God for …

  • the birth of our Saviour over 2,000 years ago
  • His grace, mercy and truth which reign supreme
  • the love He shows in His wonderful gift, Jesus
  • the opportunities we have to reflect that love

Petition God to

  • continue to heal the broken-hearted (name those known)
  • loose the chains of injustice and oppression at home and abroad
  • provide for the needy of body, mind or soul (name those known)
  • strengthen the weary, especially those struggling to care for others in this    pandemic

Remembering that a God is able…

  • to complete the work he started in us
  • to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine, according to His power that   Is at work within us.

In Jesus’ name we pray,
Amen
