Prayer of the Week 23 September 2018

Living God, we come before your Holy presence
knowing that you will hear our prayers which come from repentant hearts.
Help us to love our neighbours more than we love ourselves,
respecting differences and embracing our commonalities.
Break our hearts for the things that break yours
and help us to echo your whispers of mercy and love.
Use our hands to extend help to those who need it
and guide our hearts to an everlasting peace in Jesus name.
