Prayers for Daily Life - Trinity

 

O God, the creator and preserver of all,

we pray for people in every kind of need;

make your ways known on earth,

your saving health among all nations …

 

We pray for the Church;

guide and govern us by your good Spirit,

that all who profess and call themselves Christians

may be led into the way of truth,

and hold the faith in unity of spirit,

in the bond of peace and in righteousness of life …

 

We commend to your fatherly goodness

all those who are any ways afflicted or distressed,

in mind, body or estate;

comfort and relieve them in their need, 

give them patience in their sufferings,

and bring good out of all their afflictions …

 

We remember those who have gone before us

in the peace of Christ,

and we give you praise for all your faithful ones,

with whom we rejoice in the communion of saints …

All this we ask for Jesus Christ’s sake.

All   Amen

Dear Friends

 

This Sunday, the Feast of Christ the King marks the end of the church year and it represents also a high point as we celebrate Jesus as our King and Lord. In doing so we remember that we are not volunteers doing God a favour by all we do, but rather his subjects serving him lovingly and faithfully, receiving grace upon grace. 

 

Following my appointment as Team Rector I would like to thank everyone for the many kind wishes I have received.  As you are aware I am currently self-isolating but I look forward to seeing you all at the Torchlight Procession, singing our hearts out as the heavenly host on the 2nd December (subject to good weather!).

 

God’s blessings, Alessandra
