We thank you Father for the place in which you have called us to live, or work and worship. As you sent your Son Jesus Christ into our world to bring the light of your love into our darkness, so may we seek to go in your name to the people we live and work amongst and be for them the light of your presence. Amen
We pray for those who live and work in the Chelmsford Prison. For those who have responsibility for the welfare and health of the inmates. May there be a desire to nurture and affirm what is good and to challenge what is unjust or evil. We pray for the Governors and their staff, who are responsible for the working practices, and for the prison officers who are in daily contact with inmates. We pray too for the medical staff, the occupational workers and the chaplaincy team that their work may provide a renewing and redeeming place for those whose lives have become diminished by their behaviour. Amen
We pray for Trinity Road School, its teachers and support staff, children and all connected with it. May it be a happy place where learning is fun, where the best interests of every child is sought after, and where the children of today may be formed into responsible adults in the future, who know the value of their learning community. Help us as a church to bless the school – and may the school be a blessing for us.

We pray for all Christian people who live in our neighbourhood who share fellowship in other churches. Bless the Springfield Park Baptist Church and Oasis Church and their ministers as they serve our community in the name of Jesus. Amen

We thank you for the wisdom and experience of age and we pray that as we all approach our older years, yet may we be inwardly renewed, day by day, with the life and joy of the Gospel of Christ. Amen.
