This week's prayer suggestions

This week, please pray for...

  • those who work to serve our town and its community;

We pray especially for all who work to make Cromer Carnival a success; that this 50th anniversary year may be a safe and enjoyable time for all.

  • everyone visiting Cromer on holiday;

We pray especially for those who really need a break; that the beauty of north Norfolk may uplift and refresh them, give them a sense of peace, and bring them closer to God.

  • all those who are sad or lonely or sick;

We pray especially for those who are sick, and for those waiting for hospital treatment or the results of tests; that God may draw near to them and make them whole.

  • everyone expecting exam results;

We pray especially for students from our schools; that they may see clearly what their next steps should be, and trust God to guide them.

  • all those who will be involved with LifeLight (formerly Cromer SU Beach Mission) this year.

We pray especially for the team; that they may be inspired, creative and bold so that their work will have a lasting impact on them and on the children and young people with whom they work.

The Lord's Prayer (Contemporary)

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.

The Lord's Prayer (Traditional)

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.

A Prayer for the Church

O God, in whose sovereign power rests everything in heaven and earth, take hold of your church today that, in every parish in this Diocese, we may be led humbly in the paths of holiness and boldly in the ways of witness, that many may be found as new disciples of Jesus Christ and learn to live joyfully in the power of your Holy Spirit. Amen.
