¶        Preparation        

so that our lives may glorify you.
Form us in the likeness of Christ
we set this time apart for you.
God of our days and years,




O God, the strength of all those
who put their trust in you,
mercifully accept our prayers
and, because through the weakness of our mortal nature
we can do no good thing without you,
grant us the help of your grace,
that in the keeping of your commandments
we may please you both in will and deed;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Blessed are you, God of Israel,
for ever and ever,
for yours is the greatness, the power,
the glory, the splendour and the majesty.

Everything in heaven and on earth is yours;
yours is the kingdom, O Lord,
and you are exalted as head over all.
Riches and honour come from you
and you rule over all.
In your hand are power and might;
yours it is to give power and strength to all.

And now we give you thanks, our God,
and praise your glorious name.
For all things come from you,
and of your own have we given you.

¶        Prayers     


God of mercy,
we acknowledge that we are all sinners.
We turn from the wrong
that we have thought and said and done,
and are mindful of all
that we have failed to do.
For the sake of Jesus, who died for us,
forgive us for all that is past,
and help us to live each day
in the light of Christ our Lord.

May the God of love
bring us back to himself,
forgive us our sins,
and assure us of his eternal love
in Jesus Christ our Lord.


Sovereign Lord,
your Son has revealed you as our heavenly Father,
from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named.

Father of all: hear your children’s prayer.

You have made your Church a spiritual family, a household of faith.
Through baptism we are reborn as the brothers and sisters of Christ.
Deepen our unity and fellowship in him.

Father of all: hear your children’s prayer.

You sent your Son to give his life
as a ransom for the whole human family.
Give justice, peace and racial harmony
to the world he died to save.

Father of all: hear your children’s prayer.

You gave your Son a share in the life of a
family in Nazareth.
Help us to value our families, to be thankful for them,
and to live sensitively within them.

Father of all: hear your children’s prayer.

Your Son drew around him a company of friends.
Bring love and joy to all who are alone.
Help us all to find in the brothers and sisters of Christ a loving family.

Father of all: hear your children’s prayer.

You are the God of the dead
as well as of the living.
In confidence we remember those of the household of faith
who have gone before us.
Bring us with them to the joy of your home in heaven.

Father of all: hear your children’s prayer.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever. 

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever. 

¶        Conclusion             

We are called and loved by God the Father
and kept safe by Jesus Christ.
May mercy, peace and love be ours in abundance,
from God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
