The Prayer Chapel at the bottom of the church tower is open daily for private prayer
from 8:30am 'till dusk Monday - Saturday
This prayer by Karl Barth (1886 – 1968). “This most prominent Protestant theologian of his time spent much of his life resisting the Nazi movement, and so knew a thing or two about entering a New Year undaunted by troubles all around him.”
O Lord, our Father! At the turn of the year… our hearts are filled with sombre thoughts… our ears are deafened by the voices of the radio and the newspapers, with their numerous predictions for the coming year. Instead we want to hear Your word, Your voice, Your assurance, Your guidance.
We know that You are in our midst, and are eager to give us all that we need, whether we ask or not… We ask for one thing only: that You collect our scattered thoughts, getting rid of the confused and defiant thoughts that may distract us, and thus enable us to concentrate on Your limitless generosity to us. You were abundantly generous to us last year, and will be no less generous to us next year, and in every year to come.
Fill us with gratitude to You. Amen.
