MarionLIFE Month June 2024

Loving Lord, we give you thanks for MCC and ML being placed here in this mission field. May Your community and church flourish—where neighbours learn to love each other and come to know Jesus. We pray that we can be good stewards of Your love to each one of our neighbours, community and church. Fill us with your grace, Lord God as You help us to learn from our community, and it may be a place where all are welcomed.

We give thanks to You Lord for MarionLIFE and the hands and feet of the team that work and volunteer in the Community Centre. Grant them Your wisdom, discernment, and humility as they serve the needs of the people. May they be guided by Your truth and by Your love.


Common Grace Lent Series 2024


Following up from Aboriginal Sunday 21 January

Here are some prayers and blessings written by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Christians

Aboriginal Sunday is observed in your church or faith community the Sunday before January 26 (therefore the date changes each year).

Pray for justice, healing and true reconciliation in these lands

Blessing by Uncle Vince Ross

May the God of creation warm your heart like the campfires of old

Bring wisdom and peace as shown to the first peoples of this land

Shake off the dust from the desert plains by the refreshing rains

Followed by the glow and warmth of the sun

Let the light of God show us the right path and stand tall like the big

River gums drawing life from the ever flowing waters.

An Aboriginal Prayer For Truth and Hope by Brooke Prentis

May the God of all wonder who set the stars in the sky,

bless you with relentless unsettledness –

that drives you to seek truth.

May the God of all justice who gave motion to the rivers,

bless you with righteous anger –

that drives you to seek freedom for all.

May the God of all love who placed laughter in the kookaburra,

bless you with the friendship –

that looks like the love where one lays down their life for another.

May the God of all comfort who determined the height of the mountains,

bless you with tears from shared pain and mourning –

that shows you hope.

Now with wonder, righteous anger, sacrifice, and lament –

Go in truth, justice, love, and hope –

to Change The Heart of Australia.
