Response to the Two Great Commandments:  

Lord, have mercy on us: and write your law in our hearts by your Holy Spirit



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

Merciful God,

righteous Judge of all,

who sent Jesus among us to seek and to save

those who are lost:

grant that we may eagerly seek the Saviour,

and joyfully welcome him into our homes and lives.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord,

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

one God, now and forever.



A Prayer as we wait for our new Rector

Bountiful God, thank you for giving us a faithful pastor who will faithfully speak your word, minister your sacraments, and encourage and equip your people for ministry; as we await the coming of Christian & Brenda we pray for them as their ministry in Mundingburra draws to a close;

and we pray for ourselves,

that we may have warm and generous hearts

through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
