Circle Prayer for our Mission Partners

As the world stops and restricts itself more and more, we as NZCMS continue to reach out. We are looking beyond ourselves to be praying with and for our Mission Partners who are around the world, being people of peace and hope in their local communities. NZCMS will be sending out specific prayer requests for some of our Mission Partners to help inform our prayer. However, for security reasons, some of our Mission Partners are not able to be named on digital or social media. We invite you to keep praying for them by using this Celtic ‘Circle Prayer’. You may want to use this to name specific secure Mission Partners you already know of, or to pray for the part of the world in which they live. As you pray this prayer you might like to write the names on a piece of paper and draw circles around them as you pray, or form a circle with stones around names or places on a world map.

Circle …………, Lord. Keep hope within. Keep doubt without.
Circle …………, Lord. Keep protection near. And danger afar.
Circle …………, Lord. Keep love within. Keep hatred out.
Circle …………, Lord. Keep joy within. Keep fear out.
Circle …………, Lord. Keep light near And darkness afar.
Circle …………, Lord. Keep peace within. Keep worry out.
Amen.
