A prayer for desire for the Holy Trinity

Eternal and glorious Trinity, for whom we thirst and long; for ever let us desire your light, seek your face and wrap ourselves in the robe of your majesty and love. Amen.

A prayer that we might be a blessing to others

Lord of all, by your amazing grace you gift us with all that we need. We seek to depend on you, knowing your love is constant and new each and every day. We give you thanks this day for the surprising gifts that will meet us in the kindness of others. And, as your Spirit leads us, may we be an unexpected blessing – sharing Christ’s love with others in our actions, thoughts and words. For the coming of your kingdom we pray, in Jesus name. Amen.

Stephen Lindridge, District Chair, Newcastle Upon Tyne District
