A new place to share prayer needs and encouragement for Christians and churches in Cornwall.
We believe that our God listens and answers. WE have created a prayer board on Facebook for Christians and churches in Cornwall to join in praying together. A few guidelines:-
- Please post prayer needs that you are happy to have shared with others and keep any sensitive information confidential
- Please mark your post as a prayer need or giving thanks. We want to enter into both together.-
- Please keep this group focused on prayer and a place of joyful encouragement for the family of God..

Timeline photosJoin us in a prayer to mark the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Week:
When we feel isolated and lonely
God of faithfulness, be our companion.
When intrusive thoughts disturb and overwhelm
God of peace, quieten our minds.
When we feel distraught and struggle to face the day
God of eternity, be our light.
When self-doubt and shame feel overwhelming
God of hope, sustain us.
When we constantly crave to be more
God of truth, help us accept we are enough.
Loving, life-giving, life-transforming God
You are our Rock, our Refuge and Salvation.

God of our exposed divisions,
God of your uniting spirit:
there is a rawness to democracy.
A revelation occurs as we see
more of who we really are.
And with that clarity comes a choice
to stand with or against
Remind us that you stood with us,
when you knew we were wrong,
when you didn’t agree with our choices,
when we were quick to turn against you.
So may we now choose to stand
with all those we can,
and in the choice to be together,
may we find new ways to thrive.
Amen ... See MoreSee Less
Timeline photosToday we pray for the local elections happening across much of the UK today. We pray that voters would be encouraged to participate in an important part of the democratic process. We also pray that all councillors who are successful would seek the good of their area and work for justice.
Every day, we’re encouraging you to lift up your eyes and pray for others around the world as part of #StayAndPray.

Timeline photosAs we approach exam season and the end of another university year on top of an ongoing pandemic, a war in Ukraine, and a thousand other overwhelming local and global events, it would be very understandable if you're finding everything a lot atm. If that is the case, here is a prayer one of our members wrote for our latest lot of care packages; we hope it reminds you of God's still, small voice and Jesus' gentle offer of rest when we are weary and burdened.
A few more of our members gave us some suggestions for things they do when the overwhelm sets in. You can read that for some inspiration over on the blog at .

We are devastated that the #NationalityandBordersBill was voted into law yesterday. This Bill criminalises asylum seekers based on how they arrived and is very unfair to those who risk their lives to seek safety in the UK. Let’s continue to pray against this bill! #RefugeesWelcome ... See MoreSee Less

A poem for Lent and Easter from Peter Millar, a former Warden of Iona Abbey and the best-selling author of several books, including An Iona Prayer Book, Finding Hope Again and Our Hearts Still Sing.
He sent it to us with this beautiful note "There is no copyright on this poem. No quotes from others. It would be great if you could share it in these days of Lent and of Easter. Thank you, and let us hold God’s amazing world in our hearts". Peter.

A LENTEN PRAYER
Grant me, O Lord, to know what I ought to know,
to love what I ought to love,
to praise what delights Thee most,
to value what is precious in Thy sight,
to hate what is offensive to Thee.
Do not suffer me to judge according to the sight of my eyes,
nor to pass sentence according to the hearing of the ears of ignorant men;
but to discern with a true judgement between things visible and spiritual,
and above all things always to inquire what is the good pleasure of Thy will.
Prayer was written by Thomas A Kempis (1380-1471)
