Nine Days of Prayer 2017 – 3 June

Day 9 – Between Endings and Beginnings

LOOK … and be curious.

WAIT … with prayerful expectation.

Come Holy Spirit: Thy Kingdom Come

READ … the text with an open mind.

2 Kings 2: 9-15.

LISTEN … for a word with a willing heart.

RESPOND … with prayer and action.

God, you know that we get so anxious about endings
and the whirlwind of loss feels so difficult to us.
Help us to recognise the end from the beginning.
Help us to identify potential new leaders
and to pass on the word of life to a new generation
through honest conversation,
through tears and transformation,
through hope in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Nine Days of Prayer 2017 – 2 June

Day 8 – Between Despair and Thanksgiving

LOOK … and be curious.

WAIT … with prayerful expectation.

Come Holy Spirit: Thy Kingdom Come

READ … the text with an open mind.

Jonah 2: 1-7.

LISTEN … for a word with a willing heart.

RESPOND … with prayer and action.

God of the stormy waters,
who brought hope to Jonah
when he was in despair and far from home;
when we call to you from the depths of our lives
we ask to know your saving help;
bring us safely to new shores
so that we may travel on
with Jesus who is the Way.
Amen.
