Verse for the week

By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Luke 1:78-79

Prayer this week

God of our salvation,

you strengthen the winding ways of our hearts

and smooth the paths made rough by sin:

keep our hearts watchful in holiness,

and bring to perfection the good you have begun in us.

We ask this through him whose coming is certain,

whose Day draws near,

your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit

one God, for ever and ever.
