Prayer Book

Our prayerful concern for people in need . . .

Prayers are offered for those named in the Prayer Book at our midweek service of Holy Communion which is held every Thursday morning at 10am in the newly refurbished worship area at Trinity Hale.

Names are added to the Prayer Book under 4 headings:

v      Pray for …. (e.g. people who are ill or troubled)
v      People in residential care
v      Individuals or families who are recently bereaved
v      Individuals or families on the anniversary of a bereavement

The Prayer Book is kept up-to-date by Lynn Wilson in our Church Office. If you would like to make a request for a name to be included in the Prayer Book please ring Lynn at the Church Office on 0161 929 9747 between 10am and 1pm Tuesday to Friday.  Agreement must be sought from the individual being added to the Prayer Book before their name can be listed.

Stephen Orchard from ‘All the Glorious Names’ Prayer Handbook 1989

Staple Wares

As I make my choice of fruit and cheese,

search for sugar and count out tins;

as I select my coffee and breakfast cereals,

God give me pause for thought.

-------------

As I hunt for shoes and pick out socks,

look round the radios and kitchen-ware;

as I choose materials and knitting wool,

God give me pause for thought.

-------------

I pray for the growers and the harvesters,

for the packers and export agents;

I pray for the food processors,

and the nimble fingers of the assembly line.

I pray, knowing I cannot opt out

of this market-place of life

where I must take my choices.

I pray, seeking the good of everyone

on that long chain which leads from growers,

from manufacturers and agents

through the wholesalers and retailers

to my till receipt and carrier bag.

--------------

Help me to spend my wealth which is not mine,

but your gift to us all, in the ways

which lead to prosperity for all your people.
