Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Alongside the Nationally produced prayers for the coming month of prayer, we want to encourage you to use these two more locally focussed prayers.
+Paul and +Sarah
Diocesan – Call to Prayer
as we pray for our nation in this time of trial,
we pray for our Diocese.
We pray for wisdom for leaders,
in our local authorities, health trusts, businesses large and small,
in our schools, colleges and universities,
and in our churches and other faith communities.
Grant us all wisdom, compassion and courage to live supportively of each other.
Help us together to step into your future for us,
knowing that you will never leave us or forsake us as we follow you.
We pray in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Loving God, guiding the people of Durham Diocese faithfully through the years:
we thank you for saints who have marked our path,
young and old, known and unknown
from all places and in all walks of life.
Help us to find your way in our generation:
transformed by your truth,
sharing your life, blessing our communities.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
