A prayer for the new circuit

On 1st September we became part of the North Yorkshire Coast Methodist Circuit. This is a prayer for the new circuit from the opening celebration:

Almighty God,
We offer this year as it opens before us:
Invest its ideas with your energy;
Invest its events with your possibilities;
Invest its encounters with your presence;
that in it, heaven and earth may collide and your Kingdom come.

Everlasting Father
We offer our circuit as this year opens before us:
Break down our self serving boundaries and build up our faith in you;
Break down our old ways and inspire new ways;
Break down our fear of change and instil your excitement and hope
that in it, heaven and earth may collide and your Kingdom come.

Living Lord
We offer each of our churches as this year opens before us:
Unite and enrich our communities with your love, forgiveness and patience.
Unite and enrich our relationships with diversity and similarity.
Unite and enrich our gifts and skills that they may be used to the benefit of all,
that in them, heaven and earth may collide and your Kingdom come.

Precious Saviour,
I offer myself as this year opens before me:
Take me as I am and break me – in my vulnerability;
strengthen me with your grace
Take me as I am and mould me – in my pliability, fashion me to be like you.
Take me as I am and replenish me – in my thirst, quench me with your Spirit
that through me,
heaven and earth may collide
and your Kingdom come.
