April Monthly Prayers

Every month our volunteer, Sue, creates our monthly prayers. Join us in the CAFOD Salford Volunteer Centre on the 1st Tuesday of the month or pray at home.

 

Opening Prayer:

Leader:         O God, who called all life into being,

All:               the earth, sea and sky are yours.

Leader:         Your presence is all around us,

All:               every atom is full of your energy.

Leader:         Your Spirit enlivens all who walk the earth;

All:               with her, we yearn for justice to be done,

Leader:         for creation to be freed from bondage,

All@              for the hungry to be fed,

Leader:         for your light to shine undimmed,

All:               for your kingdom of peace to come on earth.

                    O God, you have set before us a great hope

                    that your Kingdom will come on earth,

                    and have taught us to pray for its coming.

                    We thank you for the signs of its dawning,

                    and we pray and work for the perfect day

                    when your will shall be done on earth

                    as it is in heaven.

                    We pray in the name of Jesus.  Amen.
