Ever faithful and unchanging God, we give you thanks for sending us
Jesus to show us your love and reveal to us your nature. We pray
especially this day for our troubled world, with so many struggling
to survive because of endless wars, hunger, thirst, homelessness and
lack of adequate medical care.
We also remember before you all those known to us who are unwell and wishing they could be present with us.
May they know your comforting presence. We ask all these our prayers in the name of Jesus, our risen Lord and Saviour.
