Our Orebeck Benefice Pilgrims' Prayer

Open our hearts to your love, Father God, as we journey with you;

Renew us each day, as we dwell in your presence.

Encourage us when we feel downtrodden,

Bring us comfort when we are sad.

Enliven us so that we may always be ready to serve You, and

Care for others in the strength of God’s love.

Kindle, we pray, all that works towards the coming of your kingdom. Amen

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">You may like to reflect on this message from Justin Welby, our current Archbishop:</span>

"If we want to see things changed, it starts with prayer. It starts with a new spirit of prayer, using all the traditions, ancient and modern. When it comes, it will be linked to what has gone before, but it will look different – because it is a new renewal for new times. God’s created community is perfectly designed for its time and place. It almost always comes from below. It comes from Christians seeking Christ."
