Prayer of the Day:
Gracious God, you have visited your people and redeemed us in your Son; as we prepare to celebrate his birth, make our hearts leap for joy at the sound of your word, and move us by your Spirit to bless your wonderful works.
We ask this through him whose coming is certain, whose Day draws near, your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. AMEN
Prayer for Rain
God our heavenly Father, through you Son you promised to those seeking first your Kingdom and Your righteousness, all things necessary for our bodily welfare : Send us, we pray in this time need, rain to water the Earth that we may receive its produce to strengthen and sustain us and always praise you for your bounty; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen
God our heavenly Father, we give you thanks for the rain that has fallen and humbly ask if life saving rains could also be given to properties and areas who are still suffering untold hardship. We ask this in the name of your Son and our Saviour Jesus Christ : Amen
