Prayer of the day
26 May 2013
Let us worship the Christ who draws near to each of us. Let us
praise the Christ who loves the worst among us. Let us bless
the Christ who shares with the least among us. Let us glorify
the Christ who intercedes for all among us in the presence of
God the Father. Amen.
Ann Griffiths (1776-1805)
Eternal God, we thank you for the knowledge
that you have found us and embraced us.
Accepted and forgiven by you,
send us out to share your love,
to find people who feel lost
and to give each a joyful welcome.
Jesus, however far we go from you,
you welcome us and bring us home.
Holy Spirit, as we are forgiven let us forgive,
as we are accepted let us accept others.
As we rejoice in the good news of your love,
let us be good news. Amen.
Inspired by Luke 15

These prayers are taken from this year's Prayer Handbook,
'Crossing the Chasm', which explores the
theme of reconciling discipleship; living the peace of Christ in a
broken world and being drawn into God's programme of reconciliation
within ourselves, our Church and our world. Order
