Prayer of the Day
Be light, O Lord, to our eyes, music to our ears and contentment to our heart. Be sunlight in our day, food at our table and rest to us in the night. Let us rejoice to be about your business and let us live to your praise and glory, now and for ever. Amen.John Cosin (1594-1672)
God of miracles and mundanity, God of divine mystery and surprising presence,
sow the seeds of your compassionate love in our lives.
God of the well-heeled and the un-homed, God of the amply fed and the empty-bellied,
grow the seeds of your compassionate love in our communities.
God of the vociferous and the voiceless, God of the loved and the loveless,
may the fruitfulness of your compassionate love be known through our witness and worship,
by our commitment to justice and our hopeful living, by our inclusive hospitality and our generous presence, that your Church may be the good news of Jesus Christ to all. Amen.
