The blessing in prayer

I have taken the liberty of sending you all a prayer today. It was written by William Temple (1881-1944). May it bless you.

"God of Love, we pray that you would give us love in our thinking,
love in our speaking,
love in our doing,
and love in the hidden places of our souls;
love of our neighbours, near and far;
love of our friends, old and new;
love of those whom we find it hard to bear,
and love of those who find it hard to bear us;
love of those with whom we work,
and love of those with whom we take our ease;
love in joy,
love in sorrow;
love in life and love in death;
that so at length we may be worthy to dwell with you,
who are eternal love,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
forever and ever."

"Prayer is related to our inborn hunger for God. Prayer is not for God's benefit, but for ours." - Robert and Debra Bruce

Please take the initiative and pass it onto others who may need a prayer today.

Living in Grace
