The Messy Church Prayer

Holy Spirit of God, whose energy and gifts equip us to share the good news of Jesus, strengthen local Messy Church teams as they plan their services, granting them ideas for activities, inspiration for celebrations and grace for the welcome and the meal, so that children and adults might be drawn into a community of faith, hope and love, centred on Christ.
