The St Peter and St Paul’s Prayer Cross
Prayer is a source strength and comfort. One of our priorities is being a Praying Church. SS Peter & Paul’s, the Parish Church is open every weekday as well as Sundays. In addition to the church being open to make your own prayers we provide an opportunity for you to leave your intentions for prayer.
At the back of Parish Church you will find the Prayer Cross. Nearby are cards and some pens. If you need prayer, whether it is for yourself, for someone you know or for an issue – local, national or international – then we encourage you to write your prayer onto the paper and, as you offer it to God, place the paper into the cross by folding it and putting it into the mesh. This action metaphorically places your prayer at the foot of the cross of Jesus, who prays for us at God’s right hand.
`Each week after 9.30 am service at approx 10.45am people are invited for PRAYER MINISTRY for personal or any need. PRAYER CROSS requests brought to our church will then be offered and anyone is invited to take part`
Each evening at 5.00 pm at Evening Prayer and after the 9.30 am Sunday holy Communion service the clergy your intentions will be prayed for.
The Contemplative Prayer group will meet again from Monday 30th September at 8pm at 6 Kipling Drive.
Please contact the Reverend Glynis Bell if you would like to come or want to know more about it.
If you are not sure what to pray, simply write the name of the person or a word or two about the situation; if it helps, you could then pray this short prayer from Norwich Cathedral:
God, the True Light, enkindle my life
and the lives of those for whom I pray,
with the fire of your Holy Spirit;
in times of anxiety grant us serenity;
in times of suffering, strength;
and at all times a quiet trust
in your wisdom and love,
through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
