Prayer for the Week

Week beginning Sunday 3 July

O Holy Spirit,
Giver of light and life,
impart unto us thoughts higher than our own thoughts,
prayers better than our own prayers
and powers beyond our own powers,
that we may spend and be spent
in the ways of love and goodness,
after the perfect image
of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Eric Milner-White & G.W.Briggs

 

Week beginning Sunday 26 June

For all the possibilities ahead,
make us thankful, O Lord.
Give us wisdom, courage and discernment
in the face of so much chaos, despair and fear.
Help us to see how, in our circumstances,
we can contribute towards peace, faith and love;
and give us the will to translate our desires into actions,
for your love’s sake.

Brother John Charles SSF
