Parish Prayer for 2022

God of all inspiration,

you caused all holy scriptures to be written for our instruction
grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that by steadfastness, and by the encouragement of your holy Word, we may embrace and ever hold fast to the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever.
Amen.

 

Together with our Parish Mission Statement our 2022 Theme scripture is;

1 John 4: 7-8

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 

Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love”


Please Pray for...
