Prayer of the day

RSS Feed

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 death.

Gregory of Nazianzus (329-389)


Living Lord,
your cross is at the heart of our lives, our buildings, our worship
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.

Paul Davis, Lancashire District Chair
