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



God of unchangeable power,

when the heaven and earth were made,

the morning stars sang together

and the host of heaven shouted for joy:

open our eyes to the wonders of creation

and teach us to use all things for good,

to the honour of your glorious name;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

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

one God, for ever and ever. Amen


Prayer points:

Give thanks for the faithful people of our parish.

All our ministries with children and youth.

Wise stewardship of our resources.
