Prayer and reflections


As churches are no longer able to meet together in buildings, we want to encourage and help people to pray, both within our own churches and in the wider community.   This section provides many ideas that could be used to lead people to prayer, both personally and corporately.

"Lean on me", says God 


 

"Lean on me", says God. A new (copyright-free) song and video from poet Lucy Berry. A song of comfort for times of trouble. Download the guitar chords from here.

And God said: “Lean On Me”

It seems as though our world is at a halt:
sickness in the air, but no-one’s fault.
Lord, how did this happen overnight?
We are in the dark and there’s so little light….

And God said: “Lean on me, lean on me. 
I AM here right now, so you can lean on me! 
I have been here all along, I will be the One who’s strong, 
?this is when you lean on me”.

Dear God, we’re in a Wilderness for sure,
n a place we’ve never seen before:
lost, and poor in heart and weak of soul!
How is it that we could lose so much control?

And God said: “Lean on me, lean on me. 
I AM here right now, so you can lean on me! 
I have been here all along, I will be the One who’s strong, 
?this is when you lean on me”.

In fear of flood, or flames, or Lion’s Den
That’s when we remember God again.
That’s when we begin to hear God say
“I am with you always. And that means today!

So children: Lean on me, lean on me. 
I AM here right now, so you can lean on me! 
I have been here all along, I will be the One who’s strong, 
this is when you lean on me”.

God, what a lonely time this is to bear!
Staying in, and thinking no-one’s there.
Lord, You’re always here through all alarms.
How did we forget to climb into Your arms?

And God said: “Lean on me, lean on me.
I AM here right now, so you can lean on me!
I have been here all along, I will be the One who’s strong,
this is when you lean on me”.

And God said: “Lean on me, lean on me. 
I AM here right now, so you can lean on me! 
I have been here all along, I will be the One who’s strong, 
?this is when you lean on me”..
