Heavenly Father

In this time of great uncertainty,

we pray for our world, our nation, our villages and our neighbours.

In particular, we pray for those who suffer isolation,

that they may find friendship;

for those who have lost loved ones,

that they may find new hope;

for those whose work does not pay,

that they may find the help they need;

for those risking themselves to help others,

that they may find joy;

for those who give up time to care,

that they may find rest;

for those who have nowhere to go,

that they may find shelter;

for those with responsibility for leadership,

that they may know wisdom;

and for those who have lost all,

that they may find new life.

Finally we pray for ourselves,

that we may know the saving, loving, peace-giving presence of jesus.


The clergy team suggests that if the people of Benefice reserve this prayer to say at least once during the day on a third hour of the day (3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock! and even through the night - I was surprised to learn how many insomiacs we have in the villages) then you will know that somewhere someone else is saying it to.  This can be a great comfort.

From the Reverend George Moody: "Looking forward to Pentecost this Sunday, when we recall God's gift of the Holy Spirit. Do join us in a simple act of worship based on our Welcome to Worship liturgy ). We might even get to sing!

As with all technology, this may all go horribly wrong, but I thought I'd try virtual After Church Coffee. At the end of Sunday's worship (or possibly just before - timing is hard) this virtual room will be open for up to 50 members of the TVT Facebook page to chat. Bring a cuppa." 1030 via Three Valleys Facebook .
