The Second Sunday of The Kingdom
Prayer for the week
God of Truth and Justice;
In the unfolding of events around us, we cannot fail to see that our world and its people are fractured and hurting. Grant us the courage to heal our world with love and gentleness, rather than to dominate and foster suspicion; for we are all your children, and all in need of your mercy, and of the reconciling work of our Saviour, Jesus. Amen.
Canon Carol Wardman
Collect for the week
whose will is to restore all things
in your beloved Son, the King of all:
govern the hearts and minds of those in authority,
and bring the families of the nations,
divided and torn apart by the ravages of sin,
to be subject to his just and gentle rule;
grant this for the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit,
be the kingdom, the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
