Collect of the Day

God of the wilderness,

Your Son battled with the powers of darkness

And grew closer to you in the desert:

help us to use these forty days

to grow in wisdom and prayer,

so that we may witness to your saving love;

In Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer over the Gifts

God of all creation,
all you have made is good,
and your love endures forever.
You bring forth bread from the earth

Nourish us with these gifts,
so that we might be for the world
signs of your gracious presence in Jesus Christ,
our Saviour and Lord. Amen.

The Communion

 

Anthem: Lord for Thy Tender Mercy’s Sake, by Richard Farrant

Lord, for thy tender mercy’s sake, lay not our sins to our charge, but forgive that is past and give us grace to amend our sinful lives; to decline from sin and incline to virtue, that we may walk in a perfect heart before thee now and evermore. Amen

 

 

Prayer after Communion

 

We give you thanks, almighty God,
that you have refreshed us
through the healing power of this gift of life.
In your mercy, strengthen us through this gift,
in faith toward you and in fervent love toward one another;
for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
