1 Corinthians 3:1-9
1 Corinthians 2:1-13
My eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.
We thank you, living God,
for the fire fighters and emergency service workers,
both volunteers and professionals,
who risk their own safety
to protect people and property.
Bless and protect them as they serve us in times of crisis.
Give them skill and care
as they work through fatigue, fear and danger.
To every community now shadowed by the smoke of bushfires,
give a strong spirit, generous neighbours,
and the resources they need
to care for one another and for the land.
Refresh us in our faith
that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord,
in whose name we pray.
