~Scripture Sentence~

Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for Jesus’ sake will find it. 

Matthew 10: 39



Gracious God,

we who were baptised into Christ Jesus

were baptised into his death:

we pray that, as you raised him from death,

so by the power of the Holy Spirit

we may live the new life to your glory,

knowing ourselves to be dead in sin

but alive for you in Jesus Christ;

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

 one God, now and for ever.
