Ten days of prayer - Sunday 24th May 2020 - The Seventh Sunday of Easter: Sunday after Ascension Day

Sunday after Ascension Day

 

The Collect of the Seventh Sunday of Easter (Book of Common Prayer p.278)

O God the King of Glory, you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ

with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven:

Mercifully give us faith to know that, as he promised,

he abides with us on earth to the end of time;

who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Amen.

 

Prayer Points

  • For all those worshipping virtually today across our Diocese and further afield
  • Especially for those who have come to online worship who may not usually attend a physical Church Service - that they would know the power of God’s presence and enter into a deeper relationship with him
  • For Church leaders across the denominations as they seek to provide a prophetic voice in the most unusual circumstances
