Prayer of the day

O good Jesus, brightness of the Father's glory, teach us to do your will that, guided by your Spirit, we may come to the city of everlasting day, where all are one in heart and mind, where all is safety and eternal peace, and where you live with the Father and the Holy Spirit, world without end.

Gregory the Great (c. 540-604)


Known to us in the silent cry, the falling tear and the skipped heartbeat,
you gently nudge us into those places where we would fear to tread,
to sit with those who would otherwise be alone and
to behave in ways we would never have considered safe.
Express through us your words of comfort and reassurance,
that those we encounter may know unflagging hope and fresh possibility. Amen.

Bruce Thompson, Lincolnshire District Chair
