Prayer of the day
21 November 2014
Yesterday we were crucified with Christ; today we are
glorified with him. Yesterday we were dead with Christ; today
we are sharing in his resurrection. Yesterday we were buried
with him; today we are waking with him from the sleep of
Gregory of Nazianzus (329-389)
your cross is at the heart of our lives, our buildings, our
and our understanding of your generosity and love for us.
Today, may the cross be at the centre of our living,
not just a remembrance of the past,
but lived out through each action of our day.
Help us to live this day not simply for ourselves,
so that the sacrifices of today
continue to be signs of your love for the world,
in the power of Jesus in whose name we pray. Amen.
