Sunday 5 January - Prayer

Collect for the Second Sunday after Christmas
“Almighty God,
in the birth of your Son
you have shown us the fullness of your love:
help us to walk in his light and dwell in his love
that we may know the fullness of hi joy;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.”

Loving Father, thank you for the privilege of being able to come to church this morning, free from fear and persecution. We are blessed with a beautiful church building and a loving church family. We pray that everything we do, say and sing this morning will glorify and honour you. Send us back out into the community full of your love and with a deep desire to serve our fellow man as you would have us do. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
