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

Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)




Gracious God, in your world may we continue to trust in your
creating power;
where there is brokenness,
may we work with you to restore goodness for all
creation.
Holy Spirit, in your Church may we continue to give thanks that
you fire us up;
where there is failure,
draw us back to the community of your people, called
to share the good news.
Lord Jesus, in our own lives may we trust in your everlasting
presence;
when we are tempted to stray from your way,
remind us of your love for each one of us;
and at the end of this day, grant us rest and the knowledge of
your presence in our lives,
your Church and your world. Amen.
