Prayer for September
Almighty God, we seek your guidance during the Autumn. We are happy to have the sun shining for our holidays but become sad when the earth becomes baked. We are pleased when the rains come about but depressed when they do not stop and cause flooding. We listen to the forecasts hoping for the weather we need. We are 'Children of God' and are challenged.
Lord, we thank you for the bounty of harvest time, the colours of the trees and gardens. Bless those who work on the land and people who are employed in the food trade. Give wisdom and humility that we may guard and care for your creation. Forgive us for our inaction.
We remember those who continue to suffer because of the pandemic. Help us to be aware of the need to greet and recognise others. Lord, we miss the hugs of family and friends, the shaking of hands and the smiles now hidden under masks.
Father God, we pray for guidance:-
In love, to listen to one another
In love to learn from one another
In love to care for one another
In love to share fellowship together.
Blessings and Amen
