In prayer, may we come to know ourselves and to meet our maker; to rejoice in God's goodness, to share in God's life, and to be enfolded in God's love. Amen. 

Julian of Norwich (1342-1420)

 

Liberating Lord,
under the burden of your cross you walked free of constraint;
and by your resurrection you lead us into the glorious freedom of the children of God.
As you free us from fear, let us live out your love;
as you free us from anxiety, let us live in your joy;
as you free us from hatred, let us live in your peace;
as you free us from shortness of temper, let us live with your patience;
as you free us from callousness, let us live by your kindness;
as you free us from greed, let us live with your goodness;
as you free us from violent impulse, let us live with your gentleness;
as you free us from inconstancy, let us live through your faithfulness;
as you free us from disobedience, let us live in your self-control. Amen.

Andrew Lunn, Manchester and Stockport District Chair
