Prayer Corner

This is our prayer corner. Here you can find  prayers to help you in your spiritual life and prayers for particular issues.

 

If you would like us to pray for you about anything please contact us and we will offer a prayer for you at the Sunday service and at morning prayer.

 

There is a prayer board in St Martin's church - you are welcome to come and take a moment of quiet, light a candle and put a prayer on the board.

 

God our saviour, look on this wounded world in pity and in power; hold us fast to your promises of peace won for us by your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen

A prayer for times of war and conflict.

In peace let us pray to the Lord.

We pray for the leaders of the nations,                                                                                           that you will guide them in the ways of freedom, justice and truth.                                             Lord, in your mercy                                                                                                                        hear our prayer.

We pray for those who bear arms on behalf of the nation,
that they may have discipline and discernment,
courage and compassion.
Lord, in your mercy
hear our prayer.

We pray for our enemies, and those who wish us harm,
that you will turn the hearts of all to kindness and friendship.
Lord, in your mercy
hear our prayer.

We pray for the wounded and the captive,
the grieving and the homeless,
that in all their trials they may know your love and support.
Lord, in your mercy
hear our prayer.

Most holy God and Father,
hear our prayers for all who strive for peace
and all who fight for justice.
Help us, who today remember the cost of war,
to work for a better tomorrow;
and, as we commend to you lives lost in terror and conflict,
bring us all, in the end, to the peace of your presence;
through Christ our Lord.
Amen

The Church community is still struggling with the long term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.One of the challenges we face is the loss of earnings as donations, fees and hall rental income have fallen considerably. If you are able to support the work of our Churches and make a donation we would be very grateful. 

Donations can be made online using the button below, or through the team office. Thank you for your help.
