Tuesday Tea & Prayers

Tuesday Tea & Prayers is a short prayer time once a month, offered through the St. Mary's Chapter of the Daughters of the King in San Pedro. We begin with checking in with everyone, and thinking of the things we are grateful for; Scripture and/or prayers are read; then there is time to center and offer your own prayers ~ silently, aloud, or in the chat; and we close with the Alternative Lord's Prayer from A New Zealand Prayer Book. 

Here are the scripture/prayers used on March 9th ~

But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
   They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
   They will walk and not faint.
-Isaiah 40:31     NLT

Prayer for strength for a friend

(a prayer for someone who is going through a hard time)
God be surrounding you, his peace be yours,
Amidst this great storm you’re safe in his arms.
God be above you, his lighthouse will shine,
Rays of pure kingdom light gently down.
God be behind you, with waves that will cleanse,
Sweeping away hurt to new life again.
God be beneath you, your bare feet will tread
Upon softest grace sand wherever you’re led.
God be beside you, you walk hand in hand,
Filling your mind with new colours and plans.
God be within you, restoring your soul,
With breezes of healing and eternities gold.

We need your light, Lord, in every way. We pray to be filled with your light from head to toe. To bask in your glory. To know that all is right in the world, as you have planned, and as you want it to be. Help us to walk in your light, and live our lives in faith and glory. In your name, we pray, Amen.

Alternative Lord’s Prayer

A New Zealand Prayer Book
Eternal Spirit,
Earth-maker, Pain-bearer, Life-giver,
source of all that is and that shall be,
Father and Mother of us all,
Loving God, in whom is heaven:
The hallowing of your name echo through the universe!
The way of your justice be followed by the peoples of the world!
Your heavenly will be done by all created beings!
Your commonwealth of peace and freedom sustain our home and come on earth.
With the bread we need for today, feed us,
In the hurts we absorb from one another, forgive us,
In times of temptation and test, strengthen us,
From trials to great to endure, spare us,
From the grip of all that is evil, free us.
For you reign in the glory of the power that is love,
now and forever.
