Prayers and Reflections for use at home


O Sabbath rest by Galilee! O calm of hills above,
there Jesus knelt to share with thee the silence of eternity,

interpreted by love!  Interpreted by love!
John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892)

After Jesus fed the five thousand, he was able to find the peace and stillness that he desparately needed on the hillside overlooking the Sea of Galilee.  He spends the night in quiet contemplation.  His disciples spent it battling a storm on the lake, in fear for their lives.  And then, Jesus comes to them and Peter gets out of the boat... and his courage fails him.  Our prayers and reflections this week explore the value of silence in our lives and what happens when our courage fails.  Where is God for us?

May these prayers and reflections help you to abide in God's love and to feel drawn to experience sacred stillness and silence in your daily lives.

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

Every blessing,

Revd Katrina (Vicar)
