Sunday Prayers

Jesus, you turned death into life, turned defeat into victory. Grant that with your help we may raise our expectations and achieve what is yet impossible. Amen. (A New Zealand Prayer Book, Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost)

O Lord, you have created us to do good works and have empowered us and equipped us to do far more than we can imagine. May we not shrink back due to fear, pride or selfishness from the things that you have prepared for us to do. Help us to trust you so as to renew our courage and strength to walk in your ways and to accomplish your will to the glory of your name. Amen. (My Prayer)
