Together we pray,

Lord, be with me in the week ahead, help me to be good tempered and considerate, to watch my tongue and not speak hastily, to be cheerful even when things go wrong and to act kindly to those I find difficult to like, help me to receive your Spirit through prayer and worship, fellowship and service so that the fruit of the Spirit will grow in me to your glory. This we ask in Jesus’ name. AMEN.

Scripture Sentence~

All who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be


(Luke 14:11)



We pause to offer prayers and thanksgiving that we bring to our celebration of Holy Communion.


O God,

you invite the humble and the sinful to take their place

in the festive assembly of the new covenant:

teach your Church always to honour the presence of the Lord

in the poor and the outcast,

so that we may learn to recognise each other

as brothers and sisters gathered together around your table.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever. Amen


Prayer for Choosing a new Rector

Bountiful God,

give to this parish a faithful pastor

who will faithfully speak your word

and minister your sacraments;

an encourager who will equip your people for ministry

and enable us to fulfil our calling.

Give to those who will choose, wisdom,

discernment and patience,

and to us give warm and generous hearts,

for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen
