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


Lord God of all the ages,

the One who is, who was, and who is to come:

stir up within us a longing for your kingdom,

keep our hearts steady in times of trial,

and grant us patient endurance until the Sun of justice dawns.

We make our prayer through your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,

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

one God, for ever and ever.


Response to the Two Great Commandments:

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

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.
