Prayer of the day

RSS Feed

Lord, may the doors of our homes be wide enough to receive those in need; and narrow enough to shut out all envy and pride. May each threshold be smooth enough to provide no stumbling block to children or to straying feet. Let the entrance be rugged and strong enough to turn back the tempter's power. May those who enter find the gateway to your eternal kingdom. Amen.

Thomas Ken (1637-1711)


God of all time,
and all places,
we set aside time and place
to go on pilgrimage, looking for you.
Help us to see each day as a pilgrimage,
treating every experience,
both exciting and mundane,
as part of our daily walk with you,
our companion and guide,
who is with us each step of the way. Amen.

Anne Brown, Bedfordshire, Essex and Hertfordshire District Chair
