A Prayer for Peace

O God, whose will is to fold both heaven and earth in a single peace; let the design of your great love lighten upon the waste of our wraths and sorrows; and give peace to our Church, peace among nations, peace in our homes, and peace in our hearts through Jesus Church our Lord.  Amen

A Prayer for the Church

O God, we pray for your Church which is set today amid the perplexities of a changing order and is facing new tasks. Grant that, loyal to apostolic faith and order, it may interpret the gospel in terms relevant to this age, so that all people may worship Christ as their Lord and Saviour through Jesus Christ our Lord.

A Prayer for Harvest

O God, we thank you for the beauty of creation. May the achievements of men not disfigure it but enhance it to your greater glory. We thank you for the wealth of the world’s resources. May they not be squandered or wasted but shared justly among all people. Accept our gratitude for all your bounty, and hear our prayer, for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord.
