Prayer for the Week

Week beginning Sunday 18 April

O Living God,
we who are partly living,
scarcely hoping,
and fitfully caring,
pray to you now
to make us fully alive.
Give us the vitality, awareness and commitment
that we see in Jesus Christ,
through the power of his death and resurrection.
We ask this in his name.

John V. Taylor, ‘A Matter of Life and Death’, SCM Press Ltd., 1986

 

Week beginning Sunday 11 April

Risen Lord,
you have passed through the valley of the shadow of death,
and triumphed over sin and evil.
Be our shepherd and guide,
that we may stay close to you all our life,
and dwell in your house for ever.

Angela Ashwin
