Prayer of the day

O Love most powerful grant us your strength. O Love most sweet let us taste your goodness. O love most faithful let us rejoice in your presence. O Love most victorious persevere with us to the last; for Jesu's sake. Amen.

Gertrude of Helfta (1256-c.1302)

Protecting God,
when we fall, you quietly pick us up;
when we fear, you gently hold on to us;
when the future looks bleak, you nudge us onwards,
until at last we find ourselves
in the place you would have us be.

Bruce Thompson, Lincolnshire 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
