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

Sefton North Deanery
Almighty Father,
Give us grace and strength this day to build up your church
in love for the world, in the making of disciples
and to equip the saints for the work of ministry.
Plant your hope deep within us.
Open our eyes to a fresh vision of your Kingdom.
Give us wisdom for the common task.
Draw us and all your Church deeper into Christ,
our foundation and cornerstone,
that we may work together as one body,
in the power of the Spirit
and for the sake of your glory.

Sefton South Deanery
Loving God,
Father of our Lord Jesus,
Pour your Spirit of Inspiration
on the churches and ministries of the Sefton
South Deanery, as we seek to minister to those
you entrust to us.
Guide our thinking to discern your will
and to follow the way you are calling us to walk,
that as a community we may step out together,
generously living your love,
that through faith and service
we may be instruments of transformation
in the building of your Kingdom.

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.
