Prayer of the Day
Praying daily is one of the commitments of A Methodist Way of Life. We hope the prayers below are helpful in your prayer life. They are kindly submitted by Methodist volunteers from across the globe, who offered them for ‘Hidden Treasures’, the 2023/2024 Methodist Prayer Handbook.

May we watch for you, O Lord, in the storm, in the earthquake and in the fire; lest in the stillness of the silence you go undetected. Amen.Based on 1 Kings 19:11-12
Gracious and loving God, we thank you for those treasures we have from you – the gifts of different resources, wisdom, understanding and compassion. Encourage us to be willing to share those gifts and not to hide them away. As we journey through this connexional year help us to be truly present in the light and dark of our own lives so that we can encounter your presence with us. Through our personal experiences and discipleship may we also be willing to share the light and darkness of those we are called to serve in our different communities. We pray in the name of Christ. AmenAndrew de Ville, District Chair, Southampton
