A group of young people will gather here in St. Mary Magdalene church on next Saturday 13th November at 11am to pray for those affected by suicide and self-harm. A cuppa and chat will follow in the parish centre at 1A Trinity Court. All are welcome.
You are the Saviour of those who trust in you.
You are the God of the humble,
the help of the oppressed,
the support of the weak,
the refuge of the forsaken,
the Saviour of the despairing.
Please hear our prayer this day.
Good Shepherd, lift our burden of isolation,
loneliness and depression.
In our turmoil, pain and anguish let us know
that we are loved and accepted by you.
As the Good Shepherd you are searching for us
to carry us in your arms.
Jesus, our burden can never be too heavy for you;
you carried the cross of shame and humiliation.
Surround us with your protecting love
and lead us to confide our pain to another – Someone.
