The Collect for the Day

Risen, ascended Lord,

as we rejoice at your triumph,

fill your Church on earth with power and compassion,

that all who are estranged by sin

may find forgiveness and know your peace,

to the glory of God the Father.

 

 

Please pray for those who are ill

Dafydd Stradling

John Mortimer

Please also pray for the family and friends of those who have died

Audrey Shewring

 

 

We remember those whom we know,

who are suffering in sickness or adversity,

and those who especially need our prayers at this time.
