~Scripture Sentence~

Neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Rom 8:38-39





O God, the fount of wisdom,

You have revealed to us in Christ

the hidden treasure and the pearl of great price:

grant us your Spirit’s gift of discernment,

that, in the midst of  the things of this world,

we may learn to value the priceless worth of your kingdom,

and be ready to renounce all else

for the sake of the precious gift you offer.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever Amen.

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 

one God, now and for ever.
