A prayer for Presence

Give thanks for the abiding presence of the Church at the heart of the communities we serve, its people and its buildings which provide a safe space for all people.

“When people see and experience the good work of the church in the community, this also opens up opportunities for engaging with people’s questions and needs.”

Pray for the continued growth of church mission, that it may become more outward-looking and inclusive.

Ever-present God, strengthen your church to serve You. Give us the grace to meet human need through loving service, and to help build communities of hope and resilience.

Amen.
