James will be leading a morning prayer session at The European Christian Internet Conference on the morning of Wednesday 9th May at 9am. Below is the order of service.



( L: Leader / AAll )


L: Heavenly Father, we come before you this morning

A: With open minds, open hearts, and open hands


L: Help us to look for peace

A: Where we don’t expect to find it


L: Open us to serendipity

A: To surprise and spontaneity


L: Encourage us Lord

A: To rest with the rejected


L: Give us opportunities to wait with others

A: In their pain, their solitude, and their grief


L: Prompt us to stop

A: To listen, and to pay attention




Matthew 5: 1-12



Resting with the rejected



5 minutes



Using our mobile phones as a tool for prayer to prompt us to think of others.



( L: Leader / AAll )


L: Dear God, we thank you for the opportunity you give us

A: To slow down, to rest, to unwind


L: Help us to remember to rest with the rejected, the marginalised, and the ignored

A: Remind us to spend time with the blissful


L: Help us to include the excluded, accept the rejected and accompany the unaccompanied

A: May we expect surprising blessing


A: Be with us through this day as we learn and share together.
