Prayers from The Tidbit Tree

Posted by Lucy Moore on 19 Jan 2009

At many Messy Fiestas one of the crafts has been to write prayers on a leaf of your own design and hang it on to the Tidbit Tree - a tasteful clear Perspex tree originally designed to be the centrepiece of your party and to be adorned with olives, gherkins and - according to the picture on the packet - lumps of spam. The prayers are nonetheless very moving, and I can't bear to throw them away, so here are some of the leaf prayers from fellow Messy Church leaders. I wonder if they're your prayers too?

  • To give us the courage to try something new
  • Thank you for giving us today
  • Lord, direct our paths as we seek to serve you
  • For Suzan as she seeks you and for Bella on her journey
  • Thank you for getting us here safely
  • Lord, show us the right way to move on
  • We thank you for all your love
  • Lord, how do we make this possible?
  • Give us the strength to start our Messy Church
  • Please provide HJ with a very special job after university
  • Lord, I pray for the smooth running of Cafe Praise during Noah's Ark tomorrow at 4pm. Thank you. Amen
  • That our church will have the courage to try something new and let go of the old
  • Let the light shine on our community
  • I pray for our Messy Church to really take off and grow
  • Jesus, be a friend to bullied children
  • For all those who are sick in body and soul

  • Bring love to our world
