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

Amen.

Collect for Sunday 22nd April 2018;

Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life: raise us, who trust in him, from the death of sin to the life of righteousness, that we may seek those things which are above, where he reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God now and for ever. Amen
