God our Father,

You have revealed yourself to us

In the face of Jesus Christ your Son.

Teach us to see your glory,

Reflected in all people and in all creation.

Help us to be a people of grace,

Open to the gifts of your Holy Spirit.

May the wonders of your love

Be revealed anew in our times,

Through the people you have made your own.

We ask this through Christ your Son,

Who lives and reigns for ever and ever  



Lord, you Love Me

You stand at the door and knock.

Give me the courage

to open the door to you

and your life-giving spirit.

Open wide my heart

to share your love

through patience,

tolerance and friendship.

Let our welcome be unconditional;

let our prayer deepen

our relationship with you;

renew our parish in faith and love

through the healing power

of the Holy Spirit.

We ask this through Christ,

our Lord.
