Compline (night prayer) - Tuesday, 11 May 2021

As the Easter Season draws to its close we reflect on the Christian year and the journeying we take together as Church we reflect on the seasons in our faith life and of the world we inhabit and thank God for all that life contains.
As we go to our beds, keep us faithfully journeying on we pray.

Compline (night prayer) - Monday, 10 May 2021

The day closes and so we lay all the day has held at the foot of the cross - safe in the knowledge that You watch over us and cover us with Your grace, love and care.

Entrusting all into Your hands we pray: Lord, hear our prayer.

Compline (night prayer) - Sunday, 9 May 2021

Gathering into one the needs of the world, those we know and those we don't.
Things that burden us and things that bring us joy.
We lay all at the feet of Jesus, the Christ.
Lord, in Your mercy - Hear our prayer.

Compline (night prayer) - Saturday, 8 May 2021

Gathering the needs of our world, the lives of those for whom we pray,
and the memories of those we love yet see no longer.
All is laid at the foot of the cross as we head for our beds in readiness
to celebrate the resurrection in the breaking of the bread. Alleluia!

Compline (night prayer) - Friday, 7 May 2021

As the suns sinks in the west and heralds the night,
we pray for the marginalised, oppressed and dispossessed.
Lord, You make everything new and overturn the old order of sin,
This night have mercy upon us, and all creation, we pray.

Compline (night prayer) - Thursday, 6 2021

As darkness falls where we find ourselves and day ends,
May the love of Christ enfold us,
The light of God bring day to others,
And the praise of Christ's bride resound upon the broken and the needy.

Compline (night prayer) - Wednesday, 5 May 2021

The key to authority isn't the largest armies or possessing the most power: It's having the God above all gods.

Makes sense to me as we go to our beds!

Compline (night prayer) - Tuesday, 4 may 2021

The day draws to its close and we lay our cares and concernes before the Lord in readiness for our beds and sleep.

Be with us this night Lord and bring us to as new day we pray.
