Come source of eternal Light. Come giver of eternal Life. Fill
our hearts with your love, fill our mouths with your praise
and fill our lives with your presence; now and for ever.

Symeon the New Theologian (949-1022)

Gracious God, you give us everything we have
and everything we take for granted.
Help us to share the good news with all we meet.

In the knowledge of the gospel,
may we welcome those seeking asylum and refuge,
help feed, clothe and shelter those who have nothing,
uphold those whose abilities have diminished with age,
and support lives affected
long after flood waters have disappeared.
In Christ’s name we live and pray. Amen.
