Praying Man

Make your ways known upon earth, Lord God,
your saving power among all peoples.
Renew your Church in holiness
and help us to serve you with joy.
Guide the leaders of all nations,
that justice may prevail throughout the world.
Let not the needy be forgotten,
nor the hope of the poor be taken away.
Make us instruments of your peace
and let your glory be over all the earth.



A prayer for the global financial crisis
Heavenly Father, with the financial crisis still going around the world, we pray that all leaders will use their common sense and make the right decisions to get us out of these trying times.
We especially pray for the millions who have lost their job and face an uncertain future. Give them hope, strength and the resolve to succeed in all their endeavours to find work.

We thank you for who you are, and for hearing and answering our prayers. May Your name be glorified and lifted up by all Christians at this trying time; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen


A prayer for God’s guidance
Dear God, you know me. Don’t you? I’m not just a person on a bus or a train I’m not just another face on CCTV; or just another login name. I’m me, and I have stuff going on. Love life issues; bills to pay. Egos at work to deal with; an overflowing inbox. So please, give me strength. Guide me to focus on what’s really important. And help me make the most of every moment of this new day in this new month. Thank you.
