Prayer for April 2024

Heavenly Father,

O merciful God,  the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Resurrection                                                           and the Life , in whom  whoever believeth shall live , though they  die, and                                              whosoever liveth and believeth him shall not die. 

O Lord Jesus Christ who on the evening of the first Easter Day dids’t appear to Thy disciples when they were afraid and didst speak to them Thy word of peace.  Grant to us thy servants that same Holy Peace, that we may walk henceforth  in the light of Thy presence and know the power of Thy risen life, until we come to the joy of Thy everlasting kingdom.

Lord Jesus,  risen from the dead and alive for evermore, stand in our midst as in the upper room ,  show us thy hands and thy side, speak Thy peace to our hearts and minds and send us forth into the world as thy witnesses , for the Glory of Thy Name.

Now may the God of hope fill us with all joy and peace in believing , that we may abound in hope through the power of the Holy Spirit, through him who died for us and rose again.

In His name we ask it.


Apple blossom bursting wide now beautify the tree,
And make a Springtime picture ,  that is beautiful to see.
Oh, fragrant lovely blossoms, you’ll make a bright bouquet
If I but break your branches from the apple tree today
But if I break your branches and make your beauty mine
You’ll bear no fruit in season when severed from the vine ..
And when we cut ourselves away from guidance that’s divine
Our lives will be as fruitless as the branch without the vine …
For as the flowering branches depend upon the tree ,
To nourish and fulfil them , till they reach futurity,
We too must be dependent on our Father up above,
For we are but the branches and He’s the Tree of Love.

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.

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,

―Issued by Lord Wallace, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, and the Very Rev. Dr. Susan Brown, convener of the Faith Impact Forum, Church of Scotland.

God Bless You All!
