Saturday, 15 Dec 2018

Lord, forgive us when we listen, but do not hear; when we look, but do not see; and when we feel, but do not act; and by your mercy and grace draw us into the righteous deeds of your kingdom of justice and peace; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Maria Hare (1798-1870)

Loving Lord, by the power of your transforming Spirit help us to see the communities we
serve and those with whom we serve through your eyes.
With praise in our hearts for all that is past, help us to place our trust in you for all that is
still to come. On this day, help us to walk the streets and fields of our island with our hearts
open to those we meet, recognising your image in each one and opening ourselves to the
opportunities you place before us.

Richard Hall, Isle of Man District Chair

Verse of the Day

Luke 1:30-33

“But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.””
