Prayer for the Day: Lord, you have taught us that all our doings without love are worth nothing: send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts the most excellent gift of love, and true bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whoever lives is counted dead before you. Grant this for your Only Son Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen
Post Communion Prayer: Loving Father, we thank you for feeding us at the supper of your Son: sustain us with your Spirit, that we may serve you here on earth until our joy is complete in heaven, and we share in the eternal banquet with Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Missions & The World: This week we pray for the work of The Leprosy Mission. From TLM Prayer Diary: “Pray for people across the world who will go to a Leprosy Mission hospital or clinic and receive the news that they have leprosy this week. Pray that fear will be kept far from them and that they will have an assurance of the love of God from the kindness and practical treatment they receive.”
In the Parish: We pray for Langley Carnival and other local fundraising events. Give thanks for the many charities and volunteer organisations represented at the carnival. Pray for the strengthening of community ties and relationships. Pray for safety on the day for all: vendors as they set up and take down equipment; for all who attend on the day.
