The Sixth Sunday of Easter - Rogation Sunday (B)
Prayer for the week
God of love,
give us the strength and courage to go and bear fruit for you, so that our friends, families and communities can know you.
Help us to keep your commandment and to love one another as you have loved us.
Let us encourage others to do likewise.
This we ask in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Canon Robert Townsend
Collect for the week
God our redeemer,
you have delivered us from the power of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of your Son:
grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life, so by his continual presence in us he may raise us to eternal joy; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
