Prayer of the Day
Sunday, 18 Nov 2018

Take from us, O Lord, all sloth, love of power and idle talk. Of your mercy grant us clarity of mind, strength of purpose and humility of heart. Beholding our own faults let us not be the judge of others, for you alone are truly blessed, now and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Ephrem the Syrian (306-373)

Gentle God, I watched a small child playing with a toy, turning and twisting different parts to change it from a simple car to a mighty robot warrior. And I wonder if you sometimes watch us, twisting and turning your Word, our Saviour Jesus Christ, into a rescuing hero; forgetting that, through his transcendent love, he became what we are, that he might bring us to be even what he is himself. Help us to grow daily into the likeness of Christ, that the world may be transformed both within us and through us. Amen.
