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.

Faithful God,

have mercy on us your unworthy servants,

and increase our faith,

that, trusting in your Spirit’s power to work in us

and through us,

we may never be ashamed to witness to our Lord

but may obediently serve him all our days;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and 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.
