Prayers of the day


ENDURANCE (Monday 1 June)

Dear Lord,

Today I ask for strength and endurance to get through this day and this week.
Holy Spirit, fill me this day and walk beside me as I navigate life’s ups and downs.
May I be a help to those struggling and help lift them up spiritually.


‘Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, 
I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41 vs 10

LIGHT (Friday 29 May)

Father God,

Bring light into my life this day; beautiful people, music, birdsong, nature, a smell, a card in the post, or something special.
Help me be a light for others; to guide and help, to brighten and shine.
For your glory today, and to bring joy to this world.


‘A saint is someone the light shines through.’ 

RESILIENCE  (Thursday 28 May)

Dear God,

During this time help us to keep a positive mind.
Give each one of us the strength to overcome difficulties.
Help us to recover from hardship, pain and upset and show resilience, determination and real grit.
Remind us to praise you for every blessing.

In Jesus name.


‘We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but 
not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.’
2 Corinthians 4 vs 8-9

CALM (Wednesday 27 May)

Lord Jesus,

In the storms of life, help me to be calm.
In difficult times, help me to surrender to you.
When the future looks bleak, help me to fully trust you.
When I feel overwhelmed, give me stillness. 
Calm the storms in this world God, for your people and your glory.


‘Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives,
I give to you. Don’t let your hearts be troubled, neither let it be fearful.’
John 14 vs 27

THE LORD’S PRAYER (Tuesday 26 May)

Our Father who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name 
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On Earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses 
As we forgive those who trespass against us 
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory
Forever and ever


‘Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.’
Jeremiah 29 vs 12-13
