Not sure how to help your neighbour and those God brings across your path... then our Prayer Ministry and Listening Skills Training Day - on Saturday 15th February, 9.30-3.30 at St Martin's in Mill Road - will help equip you to pray with those you meet throughout the year in church, in the wider community, at big local events, (e.g. Carnival Week) and during our outreach activities. Coffee and tea etc. will be provided but please bring a packed lunch. There is no charge for the day although you're welcome to make a donation to help cover the costs. You can find further details and sign up here.

 

The next Church Prayer Night is on Monday 3rd February at St Martin’s between 7.45 p.m. and 9.15 p.m. and everyone is welcome. Prayer Night offers the opportunity for the Cromer Church family to explore prayer together in a range of styles, and to pray for the world, for the church, for our community, for families, for individuals and for each other.  Please get the date in your diary, and come along.

Monday 27th January is Holocaust Memorial Day, and Philip Hall's prayer encourages us to remember, repent and respond to events past and present. Please use it in your prayers on that day. Further information and resources can be found on the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust website.

Lord God and Father,
We remember before you all those who bear the inner and outer scars of the Holocaust and of subsequent acts of genocide.
Let them not be overwhelmed by the horrors that engulfed them. Be close to them.
Help them to see that you suffer with those who suffer, and that no wickedness can ever extinguish your infinite love.
Restrain those who are filled with hatred and use violence to pursue their ends. Change their hearts.
May remembrance make us alert to the reality of evil and its deceptive allure.
Help us to recognise our own capacity for evil and allow your Spirit to purge it from our beings.
Help us also to stand up against evil and oppression, even if that means we have to suffer ourselves.
Enable us to defend those who are not strong enough to defend themselves, and to be ready to bring the light of your truth into the dark areas of human experience.
Deepen our respect for everything you have made, and help us to share in securing the maximum good of every person who is alive in your world.
We ask this in the Name of your Son Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, carries our sorrows, heals our wounds, and is risen for our freedom. Amen.

Philp Hall
