Methodist New Year Prayers

The Methodist New Year begins on 1st September. This year we welcomed a new District Chair, Rev. Helen Cameron and a new Probationer Minister in our Circuit, Rev. Donna Broadbent-Kelly. We wish them both a happy and fulfilling new year.
Our Methodist President, Rev. Lorraine Mellor added these thoughts as we embark on our own new year. "Day by day we hear of natural disasters, catastrophes, violence, suffering.  The list of places in need of prayer grows all the time; Freetown, Barcelona, Houston, Mumbai, Pakistan, Bangladesh... and there are all the places we don't hear about in the media too... Once again we invite the people called Methodist to join us in prayer, prayer for ourselves, prayer for the church and prayer for the world." Here is a prayer from Lorraine which is in the new Methodist Prayer Handbook:
Holy God of the morning:  still our minds.
Holy God of creation:  create through us new life and vitality today.
Holy God of whispering gentle breeze:  come to us in sighs too deep for words.
Holy God of crashing thunder:  break into our lives and into our complacency.
Holy God of sun and warmth:  encourage us to reach out with love.
Holy God of the evening:  fill the fading light of this day with your awesome presence that we might worship you, honour you, glorify you , bless you , praise and adore you as we take our rest.  Amen
