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.

North Meols 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.

Ormskirk Deanery
Heavenly Father, we thank you for all who serve and worship in the Deanery of Ormskirk. We ask that they continue to be guided by your Spirit as they work to bring your love to their local communities and to enable missional endeavours to thrive and prosper. Strengthen them all in their work and embolden them to share the good news of Jesus that many may come to know Him and go on to serve Him.

Prayer for Bishop's in Mission

Tell Serve Give

God of our salvation, hope of all the ends of the earth, we pray that the world may know Jesus Christ as the Prince of Peace.

We pray that we may be bold to speak the word of God while you stretch out your hand to save.

We pray that the Church may be generous in giving, faithful in serving and bold in proclaiming.

We pray that the day may come when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
