Holy Week Prayers

These are the prayers which the Year Six children read at our Holy Week Service at St Barnabas Church.  Prior to the service, Reverend Tim Humphrey came into class and worked with the pupils on aspects of prayer.  The children were very proud of their finished prayers and read them out confidently and clearly.

Candle Prayer

A parent has asked me to publish the text of the ‘Candle Prayer’ that we use each Friday in our whole school assembly.

This simple from of prayer was developed by the Iona Community for use in small groups.

Three candles or nightlights are needed, and these should be place on a table where everyone can easily see them.

1st leader

I will light a light. In the name of the Maker. Who lit the world, And breathed the breath of life for me. - A candle is lit and placed centrally.

2nd leader

I will light a light. In the name of the Son, Who saved the world, And stretched out his hand for me. - A candle is lit and placed centrally.

3rd leader

I will light a light. In the name of the Holy Spirit. Who encircles the world, And blesses my soul with a longing for God. - A candle is lit and placed centrally.

All - We will light three lights.  For the Trinity of love. God above us. God beside us. God beneath us. The beginning. The end. The everlasting one.
