The Dunkeswell Mission Community Prayer

Lord you have a vision for us.

Open our eyes that we may clearly see

both that vision and the way towards it.

Lead us by your Spirit to witness to Christ

in our Mission Community and to the world.

May what we do, build up the fellowship of Christ’s church.

May how we live, speak to the world.

May what we say, testify to our life in Him;

so that, as we know and love Him more,

others may come to know and love Him too.

We make our prayer through Him

who came to save us and the world;

Jesus Christ our Lord


Collect for Sunday 25th March 2018;

Almighty and everlasting God, who in your tender love towards the human race sent your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ to take upon him our flesh and to suffer death upon the cross: grant that we may follow the example of his patience and humility, and also be made partakers of his resurrection; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen

We pray especially for the following;
