A PRAYER FOR THE DAY - will be added to/changed from time to time

Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life; raise us, who trust in Him, from the death of sin to the life of righteousness, that we may seek those things which are above where he reigns with you in th unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Father we ask you to be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation. In their loneliness, be their consolation; in their anxiety, be their hope; in their darkness, be their light; through him who suffered alone on the cross, but reigns with you in glory, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy. Sustain and support the anxious, be with those who care for the sick, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may find comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.

Gracious Father you gave up your Son out of love for the world. Lead us to ponder the mysteries of his passion that we may know eternal peace through the shedding of our Saviour's blood, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
