Mark 5:21-43

Father, Jesus went with Jairus.
He turned around in the crowd,
He told her to go in peace.
He told him not to be afraid,
He told him to believe.
He told them to stop crying,
And he told her to get up.

Father may we reach out for Jesus
And not be afraid.
May we trust him when the questions rise
And not be afraid.

Romans 1:21-32

We knew you but
we did not glorify you;
we did not thank you;
we did not worship you.
You have handed us over to the lusts of our hearts and the passions of our bodies.
You have given us over to debased thinking
And we are full of wickedness
We call evil good and good evil
And we approve of those who act foolishly
Forgive us.
Do not abandon us.
Have mercy on us.

The God of Eternal Power

Father of Eternal Power,
You are the king of divine nature,
You show your greatness in your creation.
We are without excuse.
We have not honoured you as you deserve.
We have not given thanks to you for what you have made.
Our thinking has become futile and our hearts darkened.
We have become fools though we think we are wise.
We exchange your glory for the stuff of this world;
And your wrath is rightly upon us.
Be merciful to us we pray.
Do not hand us over to depravity and destruction
Forgive us we pray and save us because of Jesus Christ our Lord

The Righteous God

O God our Father,
You are Righteous,
And you have given your righteousness to us.
Give us faith to look to you alone.
Enable us to live by faith.
As you enable us by faith to live.
May your gospel be to us the power of God for our salvation,
And the salvation of the world,
As we come to know you,
Our righteous Father.


Romans 1:14-17
