Prepare the door of our hearts, O Lord, that welcoming your Holy Spirit, we may delight at your entering in and rejoice in the holiness which your presence brings. Amen.

Ephrem of Syria (c. 306-373)


Incarnate God, you entered our world as a vulnerable baby.
Be with women and men who journey towards parenthood,
and give wisdom and compassion to those who accompany them.
Lord Jesus Christ, you grew from child to young adult.
Be with children and young people as they journey through the complexities of life,
and give empathy and a sense of humour to those who accompany them.
Holy Spirit, you abide as the comforter.
Be with all those who are making the journey towards the end of this earthly life,
and give patience and sensitivity to those who accompany them. Amen.

Anne Browse, President, Methodist Women in Britain (MWiB), 2015-2017
