Christians Praying in Cornwall: a new place to share prayer needs and encouragement

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..

On this International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition, today we pray for an end to all human exploitation. God, we lament the sin of slavery wherever it is found. We remember the victims and freedom fighters of the past, and pray that they would inspire us to build more just societies in the present.

Every day, we’re encouraging you to lift up your eyes and pray for others around the world as part of #StayAndPray.

Timeline photosToday we pray for those forced into or at risk of homelessness from the cost of living crisis. Data shows the number of households at threat of homelessness in private tenancies has increased nearly threefold in the last two years. God, we pray for all who are struggling to keep up with rent and bill payments. We ask for greater support that would prevent them from being evicted.

Today we pray for visitors who have come in particular to enjoy the landscape and surroundings in our parish.

Creator God, we thank you for the beauty that surrounds us and the signs of your love that can be seen in the natural world.
We pray for all those who have come to visit in order to experience the peace and restoration that time outdoors can provide.
We ask that there will be a respectful appreciation of the countryside as a place of livelihood year round as well as a place for relaxation and refreshment and that those who visit and those who live here will work to conserve and protect all that you have made.
Amen

Timeline photosToday we give thanks for a deal signed to reopen Ukrainian Black Sea ports for grain exports. It was feared that a blockade by Russian ships would cause an international food crisis, with some 20 million tonnes of grain stuck in silos. God, we give thanks for this act of diplomacy. We pray that it would be honoured, and that it would successfully reach those in need.

Blessed is the one whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither - whatever they do prospers. (From Psalm 1) ... See MoreSee Less

A prayer for people 🙏

Creator of all, your love embraces the whole world and all peoples of every language, race and nation. In our midst the sin of racism infects our communities with hatred and death and obscures the recognition of your image in every human being.

May our commitment to one another through the transforming love of Christ heal divisions, restore justice and bring reconciliation between races and nations.

May the witness of the Anglican Communion to partnership, mutual respect and interdependence be a beacon of hope to your world as ambassadors of reconciliation through Jesus Christ our Redeemer.

Amen.

- A prayer shared with our community last year from Archbishop Linda Nicholls, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada

BLESSING FOR THOSE IN DISTRESS
May you come safely to shore
across the dark ocean
and know
that even in the darkest depths
there is hope to be found
and peace.
Mary Taylor

From A Book of Blessings and How to Write your own by Ruth Burgess, A collection of blessings for the people, celebrations, sadnesses, artefacts, special occasions and journeys of our lives. It also explores the tradition of blessings, including biblical and Celtic, and offers ideas and resources to encourage readers to write blessings of their own, with suggestions for how to organise a blessings workshop.

Timeline photosApparently, the world's first emergency telephone number (999) was launched in London on this day in 1937. Some people jokingly talk about a 'direct line' to God through prayer, but do you feel like you can talk to God at any time about anything?

Our prayer today was inspired by a prayer from Comfort in Uncertain Times by Rachel Turner. ;

BENEDICTION

Glorious Lord, I give you greeting!
Let the church and the chancel praise you,
Let the chancel and the church praise you,
Let the plain and the hillside praise you,
Let the world’s three well-springs praise you,
Two above wind and one above land,
Let the dark and the daylight praise you.
Abraham, founder of the faith, praised you:
Let the life everlasting praise you,
Let the birds and honeybees praise you,
Let the shorn Stems and shoots praise you.
Both Aaron and Moses praised you:
Let the male and the female praise you,
Let the air and the ether praise you,
Let the books and the letters praise you,
Let the fish in the swift streams praise you,
Let the thought and the action praise you,
Let the sand-grains and earth-clods praise you,
Let all the good that’s performed praise you.
And I shall praise you, Lord of glory:
Glorious Lord, I give you greeting!

Translated by Joseph P Clancy. ‘The Earliest Welsh Poetry’

A report has found that one in six deaths worldwide in 2019 was caused by pollution, with 92% of those happening in low- or middle-income countries. God, we grieve this global injustice. We pray that high-polluting countries and industries would be moved to change their practices.

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.
Amen.

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
each other.
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

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 .
