My sheep hear my voice, I know them and they follow me. John 10.27
Almighty God, you have broken the old order of tyranny and sin and sent into our hearts the Spirit of you Son. Give us grace to dedicate our freedom to your service, that all people may know the freedom of the Children of God through Jesus Christ our Lord, the Prince of Peace and the author of our salvation. Amen.
Loving Shepherd of thy sheep Keep us all, in safety keep. Nothing can thy power withstand, None can pluck us from thy hand
Where thou leadest we would go, walking in they steps below, Till before our Father’s throne We shall know as we are known. (Jane E.Leeson)
Blessed are you, gracious God, creator of heaven and earth , We give you thanks and praise through Jesus Christ our Lord, The Lord of all creation . Help us to make this world into The Kingdom of love, truth and peace, where Jesus reigns and we proclaim the Glory of His Name
Lord Jesus, the Prince of peace, we pray that the world may come to know and feel the beauty of your peace. Let all people feel the security of your peace. Release into our hearts and minds that peace which presently is beyond our experience Help us to put fear, violence, hatred and war behind us, and express in our lives and in the world your peace and love. Through Jesus Christ our Lord . Amen
Let Jesus reign where e’er the sun doth its successive journey’s run. Let His Kingdom stretch from shore to shore till moons shall wax and wane no more. Let it all begin with and in you. (Isaac Watts, paraphrased)
Alleluia – Amen.
