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

Come to us, O Christ, as the wind that blows the autumn leaves, as the song that soothes the troubled child, as the melody that lifts the anxious spirit. Fill us with affection for you that is unbounded, desire for you that is unrestrained and a yearning for you that throws caution to the winds, and this for your own love's sake. Amen.

Richard Rolle (c.1300-1349)

Architect of all we know, we stand in amazed silence, for we were not thereĀ  when you spoke all that is into being, and the heavens rejoiced.
Was it in a burst of wonder and glory that everything came forth from nothing?
With your compasses and levels you drew the edges between life and death and set in motion the ticking hearts of atoms.
O maker of me, you thought and plants unfurled, creatures teemed into the corners of all the world, more than we can ever name or know.
And all of this a house for us! Amen.

Hazel Stagg, local preacher, Banbury Circuit
