Prayer Requests

We believe in the power of prayer in our own lives and in the corporate life of our Church. We believe that prayer is a vital part of our relationship with God where our lives are 'in tune' with God through the power of the Holy Spirit. Our Prayer Ministry is available to any in the community who would like Church members to pray for them. See the Contact page for prayer requests.

You can share in a prayer each day by bookmarking this page. You can also access this directly from the Methodist Church Website by using this link.

Prayer of the day

Power of God, be our protection; Wisdom of God, be our guide;
Word of God, be our inspiration; Shield of God, be our defence;
Son of God, be our salvation; now and always. Amen.

Saint Patrick's Breastplate, Book of Armagh, 9th century

Faithful God,
when you call, may we respond;
when we falter, be our guide.
When you speak, may we hear;
when we question, be our wisdom.
When you ask, may we answer;
when we hesitate, be our resolve.
When you show, may we see;
when we disregard, be our conscience.
When you lead, may we follow;
when we stray, be our shepherd.
When you send, may we go;
when we fear, be our courage.
When you challenge, may we listen;
when we fail, be our rock.
When you give, may we receive;
and may we love, as you first loved us. Amen.

Paul Martin, Bolton and Rochdale District Chair
