Parish Prayers

February and March 2020

​​​​​

Your love flows like a stream
into the ocean of your Grace.

Your love encircles this world,
displays your faithfulness.

Your love is patient and kind,
brings wholeness and true peace.

Your love is all we desire
to heal our brokenness.

As all things pass and fade away
love remains,
eternally….

 

Please use this Prayer leaflet for daily prayer for our churches, for our world and for one another. The next one will be the February/March 2020 leaflet.     Marion Fielder White 01474 82 3381

 

Charity Number 1185604

St Botolph, Northfleet

We give thanks for all our blessings, for our faithful congregation and parish and for our outreach into the Community through services and events.

Thanks be to God for the generosity of so many who raised funds for various charities, gifts for Christmas for Hive Hope Foodbank, and gifts for Make Lunch.

As we look towards Ash Wednesday we pray for a Holy Lent and for our Lent Group. 

Pray for the PCC, that they will follow God’s guiding presence in the decisions being made for the future.

For Fr Cyril and Denneshia; Church Wardens Pauline and Wendy and the PCC
 

St Mark, Rosherville 

We pray that the congregation of St Mark’s continue to be able to come to church whilst the replacement of the old boiler takes place. Although the church is very cold you will still get a warm welcome!  

Give thanks for the meeting with Revd Ruth Adams on 1st February that our churches will work together and find our best way forward to walk the road that Jesus has shown us.

Give thanks for the work of Pat, (now ‘retired’!) and her work with our children’s church as they learn more about God’s message.

For Fr Cyril and Denneshia; Church Warden Steve and the PCC
