Prayer of the Day
O God, since without you we are not able to please you; mercifully grant that your Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.Gelasian Sacramentary (7th century)
Gracious God, the world you have made is one of beauty and bounty, a plethora of colours and textures and sights and sounds, all reminding us of your generous and creative nature. We rejoice that we are part of your glorious creation but confess that we have not always treated it with the love and care it requires.
Forgive us and help us to live in ways that enable us and all your people to care for your world, enjoy its wonders and share its resources wisely. In the name of Christ, Amen.Gill Newton, Sheffield District Chair
