Prayers and Reflections for use at home


Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, may I bring love,

where there is discord, may I bring healing,
where there is despair, may I bring hope,
and where there is sadness, may I bring joy.  Amen.

based on the Prayer of St. Francis

The theme for this week's prayers and reflections is "What should we do with the weeds?" and is inspired by Jesus' second farming parable involving a field.  This time, he invites us to think about the weeds in the field.  There are two ways of looking at this image.  Firstly, it encourages us to think about the bad people in our world who like to harm others.  What does God want us to do about them?  Secondly, it reminds us that - in our daily lives - there are aspects of our lives and of us that are like weeds.  What does God want us to do with them?  God's answer may surprise you!  May our prayers and reflections inspire your daily living as you grow in faith and love.

If you are in need of prayerful support and encouragement, give me a call or drop me a line.

Every blessing,

Revd Katrina (Vicar)
