Prayer of the day

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 clarity.
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 ahead;
and when we flinch from what we see, remind us that you love us
and that you call us to yourself from further down the road. Amen.

Vernon Marsh, Sheffield District Chair
