Prayer of the Day
Preferring nothing to you, O Christ, let us hold fast to your love, embrace your Cross and honour your name. Let conviction mark our speech, courage our life and patience our faith; for your own name’s sake. AmenCyprian of Carthage (c.200-258)
Gracious God, whose loving kindness has no limits, teach us afresh the way of Christ.
Where we have felt discouraged, renew us through signs of hope;
where we have been tempted to give up, grant us strength and faith to face the day;
where we have grown anxious about the future, give us courage to plant the seeds of tomorrow in acts of radical love today.
Renew us by your Spirit and set us free to serve you so that the whole of creation may rejoice in your name. Amen.
