Church of Scotland Kirkintilloch St Marys Parish Church . Please find the link for our Online Worship for Sunday 12July at 11am on the Youtube channel.. which can watch from Sunday and next the two weeks….(https://youtu.be/b_ZbSCGk6SY)
We hope you are enjoying our Online Worship each week. Hopefully not to long we will meet again in St Marys Parish Church. Our online Sunday Worship on the Youtube channel is available to watch anytime for another two weeks after that.
Lord God how many times must we tidy the cupboards,mow the lawn,hoover the carpets and sweep the floor?When all you want us to do is be at peace, be still and listen to you and stay with you for a time of reflection, a time of not doing but being. We long for a sense of purpose and direction in our lives. We often don’t make time to pray for or with others.When we do make time for you if we have enough faith and trust a problem may be made easier,a question addressed,hope and trust renewed and above all a feeling that all will be well returns.Thank you God for the open door of prayer which gives us strength and courage when the way becomes rough. Thank you for your faithfulness and belief in us over the years. Thank you for that still small voice of calm which gives us a sense of peace and love.
They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength.
They shall rise up with wings as eagles.
They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint. Amen.

Lord God we long to worship in your House of Prayer and look forward to the day when we can gather together again.We are grateful that in these strange and challenging times that you are always there for us each minute of our days and nights.We find you in the light of a new day dawning,in the sunshine transforming the landscape as flowers, bushes and trees grow and flourish, in the ducklings and cygnets that bring new life to rivers and canals.We find you in people doing what they can to help those alone at home or in hospital.Gracious God still our anxieties about the future and help us to put our trust in you. Touch us with your Holy Spirit to become more aware of the present moment and give thanks for the many blessings you give us each day… Our homes, our families, food on the table and your love which will never let us go. Hear our prayers spoken and und spoken in Jesus name Amen.
Jesus said: Ask and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened unto you.Gracious God we come to ask today for the bread of life to nourish and sustain us.We come to seek your guidance and wisdom in the days that lie ahead.We come to knock on the door that leads to life in all its fullness.Living God like leaves to the sun so we turn to you the source of all life. Hear our prayers across the whole world that covid-19 will be eradicated,that the bereaved may be comforted,that those in positions of power and authority will rule with integrity and that we, all of us will try to make the world a better place for all to live in peace and with goodwill. Amen
Lord we come before you, some of us afraid,some a bit lost and some just trying to keep on a day at a time.But all of us are here to listen for your word to each of us.As we draw closer to you and one another we are united as the body of Christ, in the midst of the lockdown,the uncertainty and the insecurity we all feel.We pray for the revival and renewal of the body of Christ.As Jesus died and rose again we pray that we will come ,touched by the Holy Spirit, the breath of life.Help us to see the many blessings you give us and enable us to pass them on.So may our faith and trust in you remain and grow firm and secure day by day held in your everlasting love.Amen

Sunday 26th April 2017 Prayer…
Wise and wonderful God lead us into the light of your presence to take time to pray together and be united with you and people throughout the world. Our hearts go out to those who have lost loved ones. We pray too for the frontline workers in supermarkets,hospitals and care homes.But amidst all the uncertainty and sorrow we know that you are there for us surrounding us with your love and care.So we take time to give thanks for the signs of hope around us. Trees and flowers burst into new life and the whole of creation comes alive again.May we too come alive again led by the Holy Spirit,accompanied by God and inspired by the life and witness of Jesus. Amen.
We are planning to record church services for the next few weeks including the Communion Service at start of May provided we are not forced into tighter lockdown and then we have to decide how we record the service.
