Southgate Morning Prayers

Daily Prayers will take place initially, Monday to Wednesday in the choir stalls in Church, (unless otherwise advised on the weekly notices) at 9.00am for 20 minutes or so.

If you are unable to be present, please join us in prayer where ever you may be at 9.00am. If it is not convenient at 9.00am then set aside 20 minutes at some part of your day to offer your daily prayer, using the prayer booklet as a guide.

An order of daily prayer, a reading and a Psalm along with a hymn are provided for each weekday. No readings are provided for Sunday, as that will continue to be chosen by the relevant preacher. No readings are provided on Saturday either; please use your devotions on Saturday to reflect on that which you have read and shared during the previous week.

All the hymns are taken from Hymns and Psalms and the readings in Church will be taken from the NIV pew Bibles.

Suggested topics for your prayers:

Southgate Methodist Church – its mission, ministry and people / our ecumenical partners in Elland/ the Circuit/ the wider and world church.

The local area/ national life/ the Government and leaders/ the wider world.

People and situations known to us/ illness/ end of life/ bereavement and loss.

Any other topic for which prayer is needed.

“Pray without ceasing”
