Prayer for October 2019
October is here, and it only seems like yesterday that we welcomed in the new year. Planning is well underway for events to be held during the final quarter of 2019, and hope for the New Year is that we will all have 2020 vision to see things more clearly.
During September, Paddington came to several events, including Alice and John’s wedding, whilst we saw the transformation of a newly decorated and refurbished Abbey Hall Lounge. Change is all around us.
Life is constantly changing, sometimes it seems at an unstoppable pace. For many, it is a constant struggle to keep abreast of the changes and so I offer this simple prayer.
Lord God, whose love is ever constant but whose world is ever changing, be with as we face the changes we constantly find in our lives. We ask for your guidance to discern when we should embrace the changes, courage to challenge those which do not reflect your hope for the world, and your strength to live out your message of love in all that we say and do in your name.
