On this page we have a collection of prayers for those that need your special thoughts, either in the circuit or in the wider world. Please take a few minutes to pray for them, that God's peace and strength may be with them.

The Prayer of the Day is taken from the Prayer Handbook of the Methodist Church. If you would like to follow a daily bible study as well, please click here.

Prayer of the day

O consuming fire, O Spirit of love, descend into our hearts and there transform us until we are fire of your fire, love of your love, and Christ himself is formed within us. Amen.

Elizabeth of Schönau (1129-1164)

Loving Lord, give us the courage to reach out in new ways with the good news of your love.
As we travel in new directions, help us to be always alert to the prompting of your Spirit, always aware of your presence and open to the needs of those we encounter on the way.
As we seek to be witnesses to your love, help us to be a blessing to all those that we meet on our journeying. Amen.

Richard Hall, Isle of Man District Chair

A Prayer by the President of the Conference during the current health situation that the country faces

Loving God
If we are ill, strengthen us
If we are tired
Fortify our spirits
If we are anxious
Help us to consider the lilies of the field and the birds of the air.
Help us not to stockpile treasures from supermarkets in the barns of our larders!
Don't let fear cause us to overlook the needs of others more vulnerable than ourselves
Fix our eyes on your story
And our hearts on your grace
Help us always to hold fast to the good and see the good in others.
And remember there is just one world, one hope,
One everlasting love, with baskets of bread for everyone.
In Jesus we make our prayer,
The one who suffered, died and was raised to new life,
In whom we trust, these days and all days.
Amen
