Prayer for Tuesday 25 February

“Tilt the scales,
O God of the mustard seed:
That the poor shall see justice.
Share the feast,
O God of Eden’s abundant garden:
That each crop may fetch a fair price.
Upset the tables,
O God of the upside-down Kingdom:
That the least can benefit from their trade.
Open our eyes,
O God of life in all its fullness:
That we may learn to walk the way of your son
tilting, sharing, upsetting this world
Not satisfied
until the products we bring to our table
Give a better deal, to all who hunger for one.
In His name, Amen.” (Fairtrade worship resource)

Please also pray for the interviews for the post of Rector of St Matthew's Walsall which are taking place today.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer
