Prayer for the Week

Week beginning Sunday 2 August

O thou who sendest forth the light, createst the morning,
and makest the sun to shine on the good and the evil alike;
lift up the light of thy countenance upon us,
and enlighten our minds with the knowledge of thy love,
that we may see the light of grace and truth,
and, at the last, find everlasting life in thee.

Lancelot Andrewes (adapted) (1555 - 1626)

Week beginning Sunday 26 July

Living Lord, in your earthly ministry
you drew out the curious and the rejected,
the ambitious and the needy,
to walk into the landscape of your kingdom.
Centuries apart,
help us to discover your calling upon our lives today,
as we learn together your purposes in our world
and our part to play in your risen life.

Canon Jacqui Jones
