Good morning all,
Over these past weeks our Friday Prayer gathering has spent time praying with Isaiah 9: 1-7.
And this past Sunday, the congregation was invited to pray with verses from John 15 as we seek God’s wisdom and guidance.
May you continue to be nourished through the Word and experience the voice of God that breaks through the loud noise of the world.

The following in an Advent Prayer by Henri Nouwen

Lord Jesus,

Master of both the light and the darkness, send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas.

We who have so much to do and seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day,

We who are anxious over many things look forward to your coming among us.

We who are blessed in so many ways long for the complete joy of your kingdom.

We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence.

We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light.

To you we say, “Come Lord Jesus!’
