Prayer this week

Everliving God,

increase in us your gift of faith, 

that, forsaking sin and all that hiders us,

we may run with perseverance the race that is set before us,

looking to to Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith;

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

​one God, for ever and ever,
