Cycle of Prayer

Diocesan Prayer

As we pursue our vision of a bigger church making a bigger difference more people knowing Jesus more justice in the world we have introduced a diocesan prayer. Please pray it and share it in churches across our diocese as we offer our sustained prayer to Jesus.

Loving Father,
by your grace we long to see
more people knowing Jesus,
and more justice in your world.
Help us to live as your disciples in the power of the Spirit and to work to your praise and glory.

Deanery Prayers

Walton Deanery
Lord of all time, our Alpha and Omega,
guide us by the gift of your Spirit to be mindful of
our past heritage and of the saints who have laid
the foundations on which we continue to build.
Give us the courage to mould our lives to the
pattern of Jesus that we might address the needs
of this current time with his eternal truth,
and have a vision for the future which will hasten
the coming of His Kingdom.

West Derby Deanery
Lord God, you have made us for a purpose -
to worship you and make your name known in
our communities.
Inspire our worship and empower our mission
so that our lives may glorify you in all things.
We pray that you would help us
as we seek to be your ambassadors
so that others may come to know the full extent
of your love and grace.
In your holy name we pray.

Liverpool North Deanery
Loving God, we thank you for all who live,
work and worship in Liverpool North Deanery and
ask that together we would share resources and
skills, battle against justice and support
strong community engagement.
Help us to work together with other Christian
churches in living out and telling out the
wonderful good news of Christ.
We ask these things in the name of the
One who lived, died and rose again for us,
Jesus Christ our Lord.

Toxteth & Wavertree Deanery
Lord, we thank you for the parishes and churches
in this deanery.
We pray that guided by your Spirit we may be
united to grow in Christ and to serve our communities with love and grace.
Keep us fixed on you and your purposes,
today and forever.
