Prayer of the day
25 July 2014
Lord, teach us that your Son died to save us, not from suffering
but from ourselves; not from injustice, but from being unjust; and
not from dying but so that we might die to ourselves; and this
we ask through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
George MacDonald (1824-1905)
God, companion of all our travelling,
we thank you for the times when we walk in the light and all is
We thank you that you are with us when we are bewildered and lost
in dark places.
Please shine your light on us, on the Church and on the way
and when we flinch from what we see, remind us that you love
and that you call us to yourself from further down the road.

The Methodist Prayer Handbook
These prayers are taken from this year's Prayer Handbook, 'Light
and Hope' which celebrates signs of hope in the Church, the world,
our communities and our lives. The title comes from the hymn May
the God of hope go with us every day (411 Singing the Faith).
