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 over the Christmas season…


A Prayer of Praise

God of heaven, you came to earth.
The flesh you took made you one with us.
The life you led was perfect and true.
Yet still the world rejected you.
Up from the grave your body rose.
You laid aside your grave clothes.
New life in you is found today.
For every soul, you have made a way.
Amen.

A Prayer of Confession

God of Justice,
Forgive us when our Christmases
become more about what we can get
than what we can give.
Forgive us when our Christmas stories
eclipse the Christ child from the centre.
Forgive us when our Christmas trees
are dressed more extravagantly than our poor neighbours.
In all the ways our Christmas celebrations miss your heart for your world,
forgive us.
Amen. 

A Prayer of Intercession

Jesus Christ, born in a stable-
Be with those who are without a home.

Jesus Christ, born of Mary –
Be with vulnerable women across the world.

Jesus Christ, visited by shepherds –
Be with all who work hard but still struggle to provide for their needs.

Jesus Christ, worshipped by Magi
Be with those who are persecuted for their difference.

Jesus Christ, who became a refugee –
Be with those who live in fear and uncertainty.
Amen.
