Prayer of the day

Accept, O Father, the sacrifice of our thanksgiving: of praise, for your great mercies; of prayer, that we may grow in grace; of penitence, that our sins may be forgiven; and of love, that only gift which you seek in us or desire; and this we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.

John Donne (1572-1631)

Generous and self-giving God,
we are doubly blessed
to receive freely of your grace and mercy,
and to be called to share in your work of renewing all things in love.
Help us to delight in our service;
to be cheerful in our giving;
and even to rejoice in the challenge and cost to us,
knowing that we are friends and partners in your loving enterprise. Amen.

Roger Walton, West Yorkshire District Chair
