giving yourself on the cross for the unity of all,
reach out with compassion –
even to those who hate us,
so that all may enjoy the peace and joy of your creation.
May we work for your justice.
God of goodness, give me yourself,
for you are sufficient for me.
If I were to ask anything less
I should always be in want,
for in you alone do I have all.
(Julian of Norwich)
you call us to be your people.
Let us today give you praise and thanks -
for the world in which live
for your constant love
for our new life in Christ
for your Spirit which guides and inspires us.
