Throughout the year, Christian Aid offers a monthly prayer page that links into the liturgical calendar.
July 3 (Matthew 11:28-30)
Comfort with your healing touch
All who carry heavy burdens.
May your spirit of healing
Breathe through our attitudes;
May we share in your transforming love.
July 10 (Matthew 13: 18-23)
God of life,
Plant new seeds within us,
And work your resurrection miracle
As you bring again new signs of life.
Let your energy flow through our being
Working unseen, growing new ideas and new ways.
(Adapted from a prayer by The Uniting Church of Australia)
July 17 (Psalm 86:11-17)
Abounding in love and faithfulness,
Have mercy on our wounds,
And those we inflict on others we perceive to be different.
Give us strength and teach us to be deeply human
So that we may know our connectedness to one another
And our likeness to your image.
July 24 (Romans 8:38-39)
Knowing that nothing can separate us from your love,
We confess our own limitations:
For our lack of love for you,
And our lack of love for one another,
Give us the grace to change,
So that we may live with the generosity that Jesus lived,
And love with the depth that Jesus loved.
July 31 (Isaiah 55:1-5)
May we recognise your love
as a spring in the desert;
a well of wisdom from which the thirsty can drink.
May we listen carefully to your word,
Lest we walk away empty,
Blind to our need, and blind to your gift.
