Prayers and Reflections for use at home


Your keep us waiting.
You, the God of all time;
you want us to wait,
wait to discover your plan -
for our world,
for our lives.

Inspired by John Bell.

We have come to the day that the Apostles were dreading, Ascension, when Jesus would leave them - all on their own.  So begins a short time of waiting as they look forward to the coming of God's Spirit to equip, encourage and strengthen them for the awesome job of building his church.  It is a prayerful and fruitful season; one of God-breathed, God-filled waiting.  It mirrors the season that we are in - as we wait to see how life will be in the new "normal", how church will be, and we wait to see and hug our loved ones.

I pray that this week's Ascensiontide Prayers and Reflections on the theme of waiting will meet you where you are and draw you into a closer and deeper relationship with the God of our waiting.  Do also take a look at our prayer and resources for this season of invitation to the Holy Spirit - Thy Kingdom Come, which draws to an uplifting close at Pentecost.

If you are in need of prayerful support and encouragement, give me a call or drop me a line.

Every blessing,

Revd Katrina (Vicar)
