A prayer in time of need

Holy Spirit of God,
You promise to come to us in our need.
When we have been hurt and feel low,
when people take advantage of us for their own ends
it’s hard to know that you are there.
We don’t always know how to pray to you.
Help us to discover your presence in the pain and confusion.
Give us the hope that comes from realising that you know and understand us,
and that the deepest longings of our hearts
are an unspoken prayer that we might be renewed by your love,
and transformed by your grace.

John Hellyer, superintendent, Gloucestershire Circuit and Deputy Chair of the Safeguarding Committee
