During the spring of 2003, St Columba's Youth Group in Chesham worked to create a prayer for the youth ministry of the diocese. Thinking about words, images and themes that were relevant to the needs of young people, they formulated a brilliant prayer to help us all to pray for these needs.
Thanks for all the gifts of youth -
for friendships, for passion, for keeping it real!
may they be used and shared with others for your glory...
And thank you for youth leaders,
Be with them and inspire them...
Please help all young people,
especially those who suffer for their beliefs
or struggle in their faith...
Bless all young people in our diocese,
bring us closer to you
and each other in Jesus Christ...
