Prayer of the Day

Almighty God, we pray you graciously to behold this your family, for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was contented to be betrayed, and given into the hands of sinners, and to suffer death upon the cross; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Pray for the renewal of the Church
For Christian witness by all the faithful
For missionaries and their families
For the salvation of the world
For the nations of the world

Our Father…

The Lord almighty bless (+) us, and direct our days and our deeds in his peace.
