Twentieth Sunday after Trinity—Proper 23
Prayer for the day: God, the giver of life, whose Holy Spirit wells up within your Church: by the Spirit’s gifts equip us to live the gospel of Christ and make us eager to do your will, that we may share with the whole creation the joys of eternal life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord. Amen
Post Communion: God our Father, whose Son, the light unfailing, has come from heaven to deliver the world from the darkness of ignorance: let these holy mysteries open the eyes of our understanding that we may know the way of life, and walk in it without stumbling; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
For Missions and the World: This week we pray for Church Army Project— The St Asaph Centre of Mission is based on the Caia Park estate in Wrexham, North Wales. Please bless the team as they reach out to children and young people as well as those suffering from poverty and social isolation.
