A Prayer for Baby Basics MK

Heavenly Father, your infant Son was born in a stable then fled into exile with his parents, faced with an uncertain future.  Yet He was sent by you as a gift of Love to share with the world; a gift carried forward by Baby Basics today.

We give thanks for everyone involved in Baby Basics, for the work they do, for the care and support they give and the generosity shown by so many who support their endeavours.  We pray too for the families who seek their help and ask for your blessing on them as their children grow.  We ask this knowing that you care for each and everyone of us.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen

2020 Diocesan Prayer

Here is our prayer for 2020…

Faithful God,
we praise you for your steadfast love and the truth of your eternal word;
the rock on which we build our lives.
Give us new hope and the confidence to trust your promises,
that as we reach out in loving service to families both near and far,
we will find you already ahead of us,
bringing your Kingdom into being,
in every community,
in every family,
in every heart.
Amen

2019 Diocesan Prayer

Loving Lord,
we accept the path laid before us knowing that you will be with us to the end.
We accept the call of Christ, whose voice we know and trust to guide us through our lives.
Each one of us receives from you the gifts for the tasks you want us to do.
Give us open ears, eyes and hearts as we adapt to meet the needs of this present age so that we can act with insight and integrity to make a difference in our world.
As we walk into the future with faith may our pace be set by our perfect guide;
neither running ahead nor lagging behind but always in step with you, our God.
Amen.
