Saturday Prayers: October 5th – 6th, 2019
17th Sunday after Pentecost
The word of the Lord abides forever. That word is the good news which was preached to you. 1.Peter 1.25
Almighty God, you have built your Church on the foundation of the Apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the Chief cornerstone. Join us together in unity of spirit by their teaching, that we may become a holy temple, acceptable to you; through Jesus Christ out Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Christ is made a sure foundation, Christ the head and corner stone, chosen of the Lord, and precious, binding all the Church in one, holy Zion’s help for ever, and her confidence alone. (7th Century Text translated by John Mason Neale 1818)
Almighty God, may we, strengthened by this faith, remain steadfast in your love, and show it in our lives, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Heavenly Father, we pray for peace, love and unity in our lives and in the world. Give us courage and strength to relate to each other in peace, and live in unity with you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Lord, be our strength and our salvation. Amen.
