Prayer for the day: God our redeemer, you have delivered us from the power of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of your Son: grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life, so by his continual presence in us he may raise us to eternal joy; through Jesus Christ your son our Lord. Amen.
Post Communion Prayer: God our Father, whose Son Jesus Christ gives the water of eternal life: may we thirst for you, the Spring of life and source of goodness, through him who is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen.
For Missions and the World: We pray for the work of the Bible Society. From the Bible Society Prayer Diary: “Costa Rica: Pray for us as we advocate for the Bible in the minds of young people in the midst of our society that is becoming increasingly secular. Pray for our efforts to do this through the activities we have planned this year. Pray for the translation project for the Ngäbe of Costa Rica. Pray for our team of translators to have wisdom to find the right words and ways to transmit the word of God into their language.”
In the Parish: We pray for students preparing for exams—taking GCSEs, A-Levels and other certifications. Pray that: they will be wise and revise sufficiently; they will have peace of mind while sitting exams; they will have support and encouragement from family, friends, teachers and teaching assistants.
