Bible study

Our Bible study group has just started a series focusing on 7 books of the Bible that are good examples of some of the different types of writing to be found. The first book is Proverbs; wisdom literature. We meet on Wednesday evenings via Zoom for about 1.5 hours from 7:30. Everyone is welcome even if you have not joined us previously.

Please keep praying for our community, country and world. The prayer below is taken from the Christian Aid website.

God of all peoples and nations, who created all things alive and breathing, united and whole, show us the way of peace that is Your overwhelming presence.

We hold before you the peoples of Ukraine and Russia, every child and every adult. We long for the time when weapons of war are beaten into ploughshares, when nations no longer lift up sword against nation.

We cry out to you for peace;

Protect those who only desire and deserve to live in security and safety, comfort those who fear for their lives and the lives of their loved ones, be with those who are bereaved.

Change the hearts of those set on violence and aggression and fill leaders with the wisdom that leads to peace.

Kindle again in us a love of our neighbour, a passion for justice to prevail and a renewed recognition that we all play a part in peace.

Creator of all hear our prayer and bring us peace. Make us whole.

Amen

And this prayer has been composed for Cumbria :

Loving God, as your Son healed the sick and brought good news to the needy, be with us this day.

Loving Jesus as you taught us to ‘Do unto others as you would have them do to you’, be with all the medical staff this day.

Loving Spirit your gift is healing. Bring your healing fire to our homes, our hospitals and our county, but most of all, be with us this day.

Amen
