Weekly Prayer – Sunday 28th June

Holy God, we are your church, a motley bunch of individuals woven together by your invitation to us to follow you. 

As the diverse members of our Conference meet over these coming days, may they not simply attend to what is essential, but what is vital to our future life; may they not simply listen to one another, but also to you; may they not just look for tidy answers but be open to the sometimes chaotic movement of your Spirit; may they not just hear the voices of those who speak the loudest, but catch the whisper of the prophetic voice in their midst.

As all the challenges of our current situation continue, may these days be a significant time for the people called Methodist.  Surprise us and challenge us afresh we pray, in the name of Christ, Amen.
