Prayer of praise and thanksgiving


Creator God,
The work of your hands is breathtaking. How vast is the beauty you display in the land and skies? Lord, come open my eyes afresh each day to take in the glory of your creative power.

Loving God,
You have designed with such care every aspect of life. Intricate yet astounding creatures come alive in your master work! And each day, moment by moment you renew and restore, making beautiful things.

Almighty God,
I surrender my life to you, because you are the giver of life! You are the master builder, the creative governor, the artistic genius, the author of love. I dwell with thanks in your Kingdom.

Amen.



I touch the hem of heaven
(a prayer of praise to God)

I lift my eyes to you O Lord
I take my thoughts to you O Lord
I surrender my body to you O Lord
I wait and listen O Lord
I still my soul O Lord
I open my heart O Lord
I come to the inner sanctuary of your Kingdom
I drink from the word of life
I rest in the shadow of an Almighty Father
I leave nothing behind
I come fully
I come into your peace
I touch the hem of heaven
And I love you
Love you so
My beautiful Lord of Lords
King of Kings
My prince of peace, my counsellor,
My saviour
And my friend.

Amen.

Short thanksgiving prayer

(the prayer poem in the film above)


Lord, thank you for walking with us through the seasons of our lives.

For the winter, when we are held safe in your arms through the darkness.
For the hope of spring, as we are filled with new promise and life.
For summer time, full of warmth and colour
And for autumn days as leaves fall to seed new growth.

You are always with us.

Amen.

A Beautiful Prayer

Beautiful Tree Branches hanging low down

I think one of our deepest longings as humans is to know that there is a purpose for our lives, that we have a role to play in this world. Thankfully as Christians we can be certain that life isn’t just a random series of events. God the creator of the earth and the heavens Read More


An Ancient Celtic Blessing

“May the Road Rise Up To Meet You” is a beautiful old Celtic blessing. Blessings are a gift and ancient ones like these help us to become open channels for the fragrance of Christ to surround those we give out to. I love the references to creation – the sun, the wind, the rain – Read More

We decided to record many different voices because we wanted to build a diverse picture of Read More
