Having not long returned from Christchurch New Zealand, the people of that city and wider country are not only in my prayers but the prayers of the congregation too. No one should be afraid to worship. Keep the prayers going and the candles lit.
your ways are the ways of peace and love.
Help us to live lives guided by your ways.
We remember the people of New Zealand
and most especially the people of Christchurch.
We pray for those who lost their lives, their loved ones
and all those injured and affected by the awful deeds done.
May peace, harmony and love reign;
In Jesus' name. Amen.
