With Advent not far behind us and the memory of the Christingle fresh, what about an apple ‘Baptingle’?
God of all heaven and earth, From the breath of your love came the creation of the world. We are amazed at the vast beauty of the night sky and at the intimate nature of the love you have for us your children. Be our daily star, Guiding our lives to search for kingdom love. May we always follow your light of truth in all that we do, Forever trusting, hoping and believing in your word. Lift our eyes tonight to see your eternal life shining brightly, Leading us home. Amen.
Many of us will receive Christmas cards, and we don’t always know what to do with them after Christmas. How about using the christmas cards as a reminder to pray for the people that sent them to you. Each time you look at the card, say a prayer for the people and situations represented by the card.
Don’t get so focused on having a powerful Christmas morning moment that you miss that quiet, unglamorous moment when Jesus shows up in day-to-day life, when his presence makes itself known in some new, convicting, or comforting way.
A collect for the Second Sunday of Advent that you may wish to pray over this weekend.
Advent is a time to give time to consider and be thankful for the coming celebration for Christ – how are you thinking about the season?
Christ the King announces the start of Advent, and what better way to celebrate than with a feast? One for the kids – but how about a tea-time fare?
Jesus loves each one of us, knowing and calling us by name. This prayer idea helps us to recognise and be grateful for this perfect love.
A short prayer for Remembrance Sunday
One of the traditions of All Saint’s Day is to remember those who have died: our friends, family members, and fellow believers. These are the “saints” who have gone before us to heaven. Who would you like to remember today?
