Daily ReadingsPrayer of the Day

Sunday, 26 May 2019

Weave a silence, O Lord, onto our lips, a silence into our minds and a silence within our hearts. Close our ears to distraction, our eyes to illusion and our heart to temptation, and fill our lives with the glory of your presence. Amen.

Based on a traditional Celtic Prayer

God of transforming grace,
as Creator, your imagination brings all things into being;
as Redeemer, you offer in Jesus a transformed life of discipleship;
as Spirit, you make all one and give the gift of vision.
We are your people, who long to be transformed so that our world may know its
true destiny in your love, peace and justice.
Help us to find you always alongside us,
and to hear your call to be your people, sharing in your work of transformation. Amen.

Andrew Wood, Southampton District Chair
