Pray With Us

Each day we pray for the needs of individuals and of the world

SATURDAY REFLECTION – 4 December

Dear All, Already a week of Advent has passed – Lent usually drags a bit on me but Advent – never!  It always seems to spin by hardly allowing time for real reflection on all the richness.  I hope that you are finding it rich & renewing. I came across a prayer this week  adapted…

SATURDAY REFLECTION – 27 November

Dear All, Well, Advent is here again & what a year it has been.  This time last year we were looking forward to something approaching a ‘normal’ Christmas, & then back came a ‘lock-down’ not many days before the celebrations.  What will this year bring?  We can’t be sure, yet whatever does happen to our…

SATURDAY REFLECTION – 20th November

Dear All, Tomorrow is the Feast of Christ the King.  Our reflections look at what Christ’s Kingdom is – where it is, whether it is something for the future or something in the here & now. We are moving towards the end of the Church’s year & next week we will be into Advent.  We…

LIGHT A CANDLE FOR AFRICA APPEAL – ADVENT 2021

The three little children in the picture above had malnutrition and were cared for at one of the sisters’ Nutrition Centres in Africa. They have now all got better, due to the intervention of the sisters.  The sisters say this is because of the support they get from people who give so generously, for example…

SATURDAY REFLECTION – 13th November

Dear All, I have heard several people say that they find November a particularly long & hard month – it isn’t difficult to understand that.  In the northern hemisphere it is downhill all the way into winter & the dark & the cold.  And in this particular week we are especially mindful of loss &…

SATURDAY REFLECTION – 6th October

Dear All, You will, I’m sure, be aware that at this time, (31 October – 12 November), COP 26 is taking place in Glasgow.  Our reflections today are around that theme – Climate Change.  One of them is a bit different from our usual ones, in that it makes some statements & asks some questions. …

Saturday Reflection – 30th October

Dear All, Over these next days we will celebrate ‘All Saints Day’ and then commemorate the dead on ‘All Souls Day’. So, for our reflection today we offer two pieces of writing: ‘For Everyone Born’ – this seems to be a recipe for ‘sainthood’ – if we can be part of making it a reality. …

SATURDAY REFLECTION – 23 October

Dear All, This week we are offering you something about journeying, travelling.  I think it is because I have an awareness of time passing swiftly at the moment.  Very soon we will be celebrating All Saints & then it will be less than a month before the end of the Church’s year & the beginning…

SATURDAY REFLECTION – 16th October

Dear All, I was looking at the reading we will have tomorrow & was struck not by the main texts but particularly by the psalm which is said or sung as a response to the first reading – in this case some verses from Isaiah.  The psalm verses are taken from psalm 32 (33 in…

SATURDAY REFLECTION – 9 October 2021

Dear All, This coming week is one of prayer for prisoners & their families. Our reflections are in some different loose ways related to that theme.  There are two pieces connected to the story of the Prodigal Son & the all-forgiving father.  One of these is from Henri Nouwen’s writings, & there is another Nouwen…

SATURDAY REFLECTION – 2 October

Dear All, Time seems to be moving fast and we are into October.  The dying down of the year can be a bit depressing but if we can remain mindful that it is all part of the regeneration process that leads though to the spring & to resurrection, then it is all possible. Autumn colours…
