Prayers and Reflections for use at home


Jesus said, 'Holy Father, protect them in your name
that you have given me, so that they may be one,

as we are one.'
John 17:11

As we think about Jesus leaving his team, we look back to the prayer Jesus prayed for them - and for us - as he waited to be taken prisoner, put on trial and condemned to die on a cross.  It is a glorious prayer of protection.  He does not ask that his team are kept safe from all danger and challenge.  No!  His prayer is that his Father will protect their faith and keep it strong as they live and work through what lies ahead of them.  For it is when life is tough and we can't understand this is happening, such as in the coronavirus crisis, that our faith is tested and strengthened.  With God's help, we can come out the other side with a deeper trust in God's love and loving presence. 

May this week's prayers and reflections strengthen and encourage your faith and inspire your daily living.

May you be refreshed and renewed by God's Holy Spirit..

Every blessing,

Revd Katrina (Vicar)
