You might like to begin with ‘a prayer for ourselves’ which is printed  below and then slowly read the Bible passage, asking God to speak to you through the words. Then turn to prayer, using the prayer points to guide you. You could finish by praying the Lord’s Prayer.

 A prayer for ourselves

Father, pour out your Spirit upon your people,
and grant us a new vision of your glory,
a new experience of your power,
a new faithfulness to your Word,
and a new consecration to your service,
that your love may grow among us,
and your kingdom come;
through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Saturday 14th May

 This is the disciple [John] who testifies to these things and who wrote them down.  We know that his testimony is true.
Jesus did many other things as well.  If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.                                                                                                                                                 (John 21:24-25)

Pray for a sense of joy as people see God fulfilling his promises.


Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done; on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory for ever and ever. Amen.
