Prayer of the Week 21 June 2020

Eternal God, in Christ you have sought us with a shepherd’s heart,

Multiply in all the world the wonders of your saving grace,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

Prayer of the Week 14 June 2020

O God, your name is veiled in mystery, yet we dare to call you Father;
your Son was begotten before all ages, yet is born among us in time;
your Holy Spirit fills the whole creation, yet is poured forth now into our hearts.
Because you have made us and loved us and called us by name,
draw us more deeply into your divine life, that we may glorify you rightly,
through your Son, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever.

Amen
