Prayer of the day
29 July 2014
May the cross of the Son of God, mightier than all the powers of
evil, bless our going out and our coming in. By the holy cross
may we be delivered from all anger, all temptation and all
unruly passion; and may almighty God bless us, the Father, the
Son and the Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.
Traditional Indian Liturgy
Compassionate and loving God, we pray for the bereaved and for
those who feel sad and isolated. We remember them all, but
especially those who have no close family or whose family are
far away. We thank you, Lord, for Cruse volunteers and for
pastoral visitors who are so privileged to be welcomed into
people's homes. We pray that, as we empathise, listen and
offer support, a spark of hope may be ignited in your name.

The Methodist Prayer Handbook
These prayers are taken from this year's Prayer Handbook, 'Light
and Hope' which celebrates signs of hope in the Church, the world,
our communities and our lives. The title comes from the hymn May
the God of hope go with us every day (411 Singing the Faith).
