Prayer for the life of St Cuthbert’s.

Weekly Prayer.

Lord, you are our Father, a loving parent who cares for us, your children. Here at St Cuthbert’s we are just a few of your many million, precious, loved and valued children. Help us to recognise the needs of our brothers and sisters, near and far – all made in your image.

Hallowed be your name, not my name or any other. May your truth and justice reign on this planet which is stricken with poverty. When we ask for your kingdom to come, we do so laying all our resources at your feet.

Help us as part of your church, to be obedient to your call to look after people in need in your name. Give us your daily bread and help us to share abundantly the plenty that we have been blessed with. Amen.
