God and Father of all,

you have taught us through your Son

that the last shall be first,

and have made a little child the measure of your kingdom:

give us the wisdom from above,

so that we may understand that in your sight

the one who serves is the greatest of all.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,

one God, for ever and ever. Amen


Prayer points:

Give thank for the faithful people of our parish.

All our ministries with children and youth.

Wise stewardship of our resources.
