Prayer of the day

  • Tuesday, 25 Jul 2017
    Preferring nothing to you, O Christ, let us hold fast to your love, embrace your cross and honour your name. Let conviction mark our speech, courage our life and patience our faith; for your own name's sake. Amen. Cyprian of Carthage (c. 200-258) Loving God, when life is busy and the pressure is on, it is easy to feel hemmed in by the expectations of other people and the demands of daily living. Yet, in Christ, you promise us freedom. Remind me of the freedom that is to be found in knowing him. Help me, by your Spirit, to see beyond everything that seems to get in the way of me being the person you made me to be and doing the things you have for me to do. Open my ears to the cries of all those around me, who are denied the freedom they deserve, and give me the courage to speak up and to speak out for them, that all may enjoy the freedom Christ came to bring. Amen. Gill Newton, Sheffield District Chair
