Prayer of the day

Grant us, O God, a greater obedience to your will, a more fervent love for our neighbour and a stronger thirst for your word; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

William Tyndale (c.1494-1536)

Lord, our response to the gospel has not always been what you would like it to be. Forgive us we pray, and as we rejoice in our own experience of accepting the gospel message, give us a renewed understanding of what the gospel message truly is, an adventurous spirit as we try to share it effectively, courage and love as we engage with those who need to hear and experience it, and the satisfaction of a job well done as more and more people come to know, trust, love and serve you, the source and end of the gospel. Amen.

Sam McGuffin, President, Methodist Church in Ireland

A prayer for Brexit day by the Revd Barbara Glasson, President of the Methodist Conference

However we feel about today
We mark this Brexit day
As people who grieve or celebrate together
One people
Loved equally, freely and unconditionally
By the one wise all-seeing God
Either way let us hold this day gently
Giving ourselves permission to leave
Without elation or despair
Determined to love our neighbour
Support the weak and welcome the stranger
Lord of all life
Let your servants depart in peace
And live according to your Holy Law
