Prayer of the Day
Teach us, O Christ, to cast off all bonds of prejudice and custom, and to let your love direct every enterprise on which we embark and every labour that we undertake. Amen.Catherine Booth (1829-1890)
God of my salvation,
when my soul is a parched land, summon me to drink deep from your living waters.
When the ﬂoods rise up to my neck, rescue me from sinking in the mire.
When the storms rage around me, anchor me to the rock of your enduring love.
And at all times, keep before my sight those brothers and sisters for whom drought
and ﬂood and storm are more than metaphor.
Help me to live simply so that others may simply live.
