Why we pray?

Ephesians 6:18

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Prayer is central to everything we do here at Saint George the Martyr. We pray not just because Jesus commanded us to, but because in prayer we build and sustain our relationship with the God who hears us and the community around us.

At this time we continue to pray for the ongoing war in Ukraine. This conflict reminds us of the ever-present need to pray for world peace. At this time our Archbishops’ have encouraged all churches to join together in prayer, we therefore say the following:

Almighty God,
From whom all thoughts of truth and peace proceed: kindle, we pray, in the hearts of all, the true love of peace and guide with your pure and peaceable wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth that in tranquillity your kingdom may go forward, till the earth is filled with the knowledge of your love; we pray for the people of Ukraine today. We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons. We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them. We pray for those with power over war or peace, for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions. Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear, that you would hold and protect them. We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
