Warrambui 50th Anniversary Prayer Email
View this email in your browser

It was 50 years ago this year, that visionary young members of our NSW Lutheran church purchased 120 hectares of land, 45 kilometres from the centre of Canberra and began the history of what we have come to know as the Warrambui Retreat and Conference Centre.

Please join me in prayer as we journey through this year of celebration and reflection. Prayers will be distributed on a fortnightly basis to year's end and I would encourage you to share these prayers with your community, family, friends and others.

Prayer No 9 - Healing, hope and wholeness

In this 50th year celebration in the founding of Warrambui  we pray for the many groups that use Warrambui as a place to bring hope, healing and wholeness to broken lives.

Heavenly Father – We thank you for every person whose life is committed to changing lives and bringing hope, healing and wholeness to those whose lives are broken;  

for all those through whom You reach out with love and compassion;

for those who care for us when we are hurting and for those who try to understand us when we feel lost;

for those who hold us when we feel empty; and

for those who lift us when we are down.

Lord, we thank you for those who give of themselves, their skills and energy that others might know what it means to be healed.

Thank you for those moments of healing and renewal that come to us when we least expect them.

Lord we bring before You the work of churches, congregations, organisations and groups that use Warrambui as a place to bring hope, healing and wholeness to broken lives in Your name. We ask that You continue to bless this precious work.

We especially thank you for our healing in Christ Jesus; for the renewal of life within us and the healing of our relationship with You through the innocent suffering and death on the cross.
 
Receive our thanks and the worship of our lives, through Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.

Note:  Prayers are based on books by David Clowes : ‘500 Prayers for All Occasions’ & ‘500 More Prayers for All Occasions’
