Prayers

Prayer is vital to the work of All We Can and we are encouraged by our supporters and partners who join with us in prayer.

Each month, we highlight the key areas that we invite you to join us in praying for.


Prayers to use as we approach the Lenten season:

Sovereign Lord,
We pray for our government and politicians as they navigate Brexit and its implications.
We pray for them to have wisdom and compassion,
Good communication with other governments and for them to lead the way in healing divisions.
Guide them, sustain them,
May your peace prevail.

Heavenly Father,
We remember during Lent that Jesus went into the wilderness and was tested.
We pray for those we know facing their own wilderness times.
Give them strength and help them to know that you are present in their struggles.
Help us to be people they can lean on when feeling weak.
May they find in us a community ready to listen and walk alongside them.
May your kindness flow through us.

Lord of all creation,
As we begin Lent, we reflect this year on our own part in radically changing the story.
We are sorry for the times when we have not looked after your world.
We commit ourselves to playing our part in the bigger story,
To putting into action the teaching you have given us.
Help us to know the ways we can make a difference.
Help us to hear your words and let them sink into our hearts.
May your will be done.
Amen.
