What do you want to thank God for?
What do you want to ask God for?
Here’s what some members of our church said…
Now it’s your turn!
Say your own short ‘Thank You God…’ prayers out loud;
Then say some ‘Please God…’ prayers.
Finally, take a moment of quiet and say sorry to God for anything you know you’ve done wrong. As we turn back to God, we are forgiven. Say together:
Thank you God, that when we say sorry and turn back to you, you forgive us. We are forgiven. Amen.
Samuel Klemperer is reading from Mark 16.
