Prayer is at the heart of our community here at St Michael’s. Through daily prayer we listen to God and offer to him the needs of our local community and of the world. Through prayer we learn to become what God is calling each of us to be. Please join us or let us know if we can pray with or for you.

Benediction for Pentecost

As you enter a new week, may you experience God’s presence. May you feel God pouring out the Holy Spirit over your heads and your thoughts and the words of your lips, over your hearts and your feelings and emotions and your compassion for all others, and over your hands and your feet as you put into action all that God commands you.

During this week, may the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with each of you; Amen.

We pray for all who are ill, that God may grant them health and peace:
