Words and Prayers to share

Our Ministry Team will be circulating some special words this week via this notices email service: please do keep in touch with us too. Phone numbers/ emails on the back page.

Palm Sunday:

Hosanna to the Son of David, the King of Israel!

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest!

Behold your King comes to you, O Zion,

meek and lowly, sitting upon a donkey.  

Ride on in the cause of truth and for the sake of justice.

Your throne is the throne of God, it endures for ever: and the sceptre of your kingdom is a righteous sceptre. You have loved righteousness and hated evil: therefore God, your God,
has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.

Hosanna to the Son of David, the King of Israel!

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Holy Week:

Christ crucified draw you to himself, to find in him a sure ground for faith, a firm support for hope, and the assurance of sins forgiven; and may you know the blessing of God almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, among you and those you love and care for. Amen


During our present situation worldwide

Keep us, dear Lord, under the shadow of your mercy. Sustain and support the anxious, be with those who care for the sick, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may find comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Lord Jesus Christ, you taught us to love our neighbour, and to care for those in need

as if we were caring for you. In this time of anxiety, give us strength to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick, and to assure the isolated of our love, and your love, for your name’s sake.


God of compassion, be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation. In their loneliness, be their consolation; in anxiety, be their hope; in their darkness, be their light; through him who suffered alone on the cross, but reigns with you in glory, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


For those who are ill: Merciful God, we entrust to your tender care those who are ill or in pain, knowing that whenever danger threatens your everlasting arms are there to hold them safe. Comfort and heal them, and restore them to health & strength; in Jesus’ name. Amen.


For hospital staff and medical researchers: Gracious God, give skill, sympathy and resilience

to all who are caring for the sick, and your wisdom to those searching for a cure. Give them the personal protection they need. Strengthen them with your Spirit, that through their work many will be restored to health; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
