Prayers for This Year


OUR COMMISSION

Our Lord's great commission was to send us out into the world to make disciples of all peoples, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. This we seek to do with love and care.

Worship Together

There is the danger that we would favour one minister against another, and so stay away.

Paul strongly condemns this. Remember that we are here to worship God not man.

Throughout the year we shall have many different speakers and leaders of worship: Pray for them all. Invite friends and neighbours to share Sunday afternoons with you, at church.


Fellowship Together

Come to events and services whether here or at other Churches. Whilst we may have strongly held beliefs as Baptists, We have much in common with other Christian faiths and need to share our love of Jesus with them.


Mission Together

Part of our mission to the village is telling others about Jesus: Do this by inviting others to come with you to church or other events: Making the love of God known by what you do and say.


Above all remember your commitment to God.

When you became a member of this part of His Church in Hockley Heath you made promises and gave commitments both to Him and to fellow Christians.



Prayer for Autumn Days

- Author Unknown

God of the seasons, there is a time for everything;

there is a time for dying and a time for rising. We need courage to enter into the transformation process.

God of autumn, the trees are saying goodbye to their green, letting go of what has been. We, too, have our moments of surrender, with all their insecurity and risk. Help us to let go when we need to do so.

God of fallen leaves lying in colored patterns on the ground, our lives have their own patterns. As we see the patterns of our own growth, may we learn from them.

God of misty days and harvest moon nights, there is always the dimension of mystery and wonder in our lives. We always need to recognize your power-filled presence. May we gain strength from this.

God of harvest wagons and fields of ripened grain, many gifts of growth lie within the season of our surrender. We must wait for harvest in faith and hope. Grant us patience when we do not see the blessings.

God of geese going south for another season, your wisdom enables us to know what needs to be left behind and what needs to be carried into the future. We yearn for insight and vision.

God of flowers touched with frost and windows wearing white designs, may your love keep our hearts from growing cold in the empty seasons.

God of life, you believe in us, you enrich us, you entrust us with the freedom to choose life. For all this, we are grateful
