Prayer of the week (The Church Times 27th June 2014)

The Rev'd Catherine Pickford picked this prayer as prayer of the week in The Church Times last week. It is written by Janet Morley and comes from 'All Desires Known (SPCK,1992,2005):-

Catherine Pickford says, "If this is a prayer for parish churches that support communities through difficult times, it is also a prayer for the times in our lives when we feel darkness pressing in on us. It is often when we are suffering that we feel the most alone. This prayer asks the Spirit to inhabit our darkness and chaos, there in the midst of it, when we feel at our worst.

More than this, there is a crucial sense in Morley's prayer of God using all that is in us, including the darkness, that we may breathe with the Spirit's life. God does not use us only when we feel as if we are doing a good job. He is at work in our lives when we are at our wits' end, and feel we have nothing left to give."
