Lord, we pray for your church
Steph and Robert are away on holiday until 25th October but the Church Office will be open at the usual times.
Lord, we pray for your church, that we may grow together in unity, in understanding and in confidence.
O God whose life is love,
Your Son taught us that we should be one, just as you and he are one.
Inspire your church with the gift of unity, we pray,
that leaving behind all pride and hardness of heart,
and reaching out to one another in openness and humility,
we would come to experience for ourselves
the joy of dwelling together in harmony
and the delight of learning from the wisdom of one another,
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
