Prayer of the Day    

Heavenly Father, in whom we live and move and have our being: We humbly pray you so to guide and govern us by your Holy Spirit, that in all the cares and occupations of our life we may not forget you, but may remember that we are ever walking in your sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Gracious Lord, in every age you sent men and women who have given their lives for the message of your love: Inspire us with the memory of those martyrs for the Gospel like your servant Kaj Munk, whose faithfulness led them in the way of the cross, and give us courage to bear full witness with our lives to your Son’s victory over sin and death; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with the you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Pray for all people in society and community
For families and children
For those who live alone
For those we love
For catechumens and learners
For the whole human family
For those under persecution
For those who resist tyranny
For playwrights and dramatists

Our Father…

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