Prayers and Reflections for use at home


Guide me, O thou great Redeemer, pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but thou art mighty; hold me with thy powerful hand:
bread of heaven, bread of heaven,

feed me now and ever more, feed me now and ever more.
William Williams (1717-1791)

This week, we are exploring the well-known story of the feeding of the five thousand.  Jesus takes what little food the disciples have with them - the equivalent of 1/1000th of a loaf per person (a crumb) - and turns it into a nourishing picnic.  There's so much food leftover that each one of Jesus' twelve disciples has a full basket to take home.  It speaks to us of God's abundance and generosity.  And, his invitation to us let go and trust in him - to offer what we have to him and see how this multiplies in his hands; how this becomes enough - more than enough - to overcome the challenges we are facing.

May these prayers and reflections draw you close to Jesus, the bread of life, so that he can feed you spiritually.  May this give you what you need at this time.

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

Every blessing,

Revd Katrina (Vicar)
