Today from our church family we pray for John Garbett
Heavenly Father we pray for your church, for its leaders and for unity and dialogue between all branches of Christianity. We pray that the Christian message of humility and support for the poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged will be echoed in our churches and influence those in positions of power in our secular world. May we take inspiration from the words of our Archbishop to work to transform our world. Lord, help us to welcome new challenges and new beginnings.
“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace,
where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon;
where there is discord, union: where there is doubt, ,faith;
where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy; for thy mercy’s sake.” (St Francis of Assisi)
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer
