Prayer for September 2023

A Prayer for Humility
Take me and break me and make me, dear God,
Just what you want me to be—
Give me the strength to accept what You send
And eyes with the vision to see
All the small arrogant ways that I have
And the vain little things that I do.
Make me aware that I’m often concerned
More with myself than with You
Uncover before me my weakness and greed
And help me to search deep inside
So I may discover how easy it is
To be selfishly lost in my pride-
And then in Thy goodness and mercy
Look down on this weak, erring one
And tell me that I am forgiven
For all I’ve so wilfully done,
And teach me to humbly start following
The path that the dear Saviour trod
So I’ll find at the end of life’s journey
A home in the city of God
                                                  Helen Steiner Rice

I have lived to thank God that not all my prayers have been answered
                                                                                                                               Jean Ingelow

Prayer does not change God, but it changes those who pray

Dear Lord,

We come to you with prayers for the poor people in Turkey and Syria.  We cannot begin to imagine the pain and despair they are suffering at this terrible time. The earthquake has brought death to tens of thousands leaving husbands and wives ,  brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, grandparents and orphaned children bereft and broken hearted.  We ask Lord that you would help them, bring comfort and healing to their troubled souls.  For many the homes where they felt safest have now become their tombs. We thank you Lord for the miracle of life for those dug out of the rubble alive but we ask too that you give them strength to face a life that will never be the same again.

We pray for the rescue workers, searching now, sadly for the bodies of those buried many feet below the rubble.  Some of those searching Lord being family members or neighbours. Dear Lord,  bless them all.

We pray for the worldwide aid that is being sent and we thank you Lord that it is not only large organisations but individuals and groups who have stepped forward to help. We ask Lord that all the supplies reach those who are in dire need, quickly.  We pray Lord that those supply routes are not blocked,  especially in war torn Syria.

We ask Lord that you wrap your loving arms around each and every one caught up in this horrendous earthquake.  As they wake up to new days cold and hungry may they feel the love of the world surrounding them.  May they find nourishment and shelter soon and Lord may your great love for them bring them a small glimmer of hope for the future.


Lord God,
We ask you to hold the people of Ukraine deep in your heart.
Protect them, we pray;
from violence, from political gamesmanship,
from being used and abused.V

Give, we pray, the nations of the world the courage
and the wisdom to stand up for justice
and the courage too, to dare to care―generously.

Lord, in your mercy, take from us all the tendencies in us
that seek to lord it over others:
take from us those traits that see us pursuing our own needs and wants before those of others.

Teach us how to live in love and dignity and respect―following your example.
In your name and for your sake,
