Prayer of the day

Lord Jesus Christ, Wisdom and Word of God, dwell in our hearts, we pray, by your most Holy Spirit, that out of the abundance of our hearts our mouths may speak your praise. Amen.

Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)

God who loves and who calls us to love:
from hardness to divine compassion, transform our hearts;
from heaviness to holy joy, transform our souls;
from prejudice to eternal truth, transform our minds;
from fear to faithful courage, transform us in strength;
that we might love our neighbour, witness to your Son, and grow in your Spirit. Amen.

Andrew Lunn, Manchester and Stockport District Chair

Prayer of Thanks for Foodbanks

Based on Nehemiah 8:9-10

You give us so much pour out blessing upon us.
And yet faced with the world with all that is broken and unjust
We grieve and weep.

And yet you are the source of all that is good,
and all that comes from you is good.
You remind us to embrace the good to find joy in it.
You remind us to
Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks.
And yet in your holy days
you remind us also to send portions to those who have none.

Through the work of Foodbanks
we share the choice food and sweet drinks.
We take joy in God's creation,
not despite other,
but alongside others.
Amen
