We believe that all our lives are in your hands.
We believe that in the end all human kind must come to you.
We believe that however dark our way you walk beside us.
We so often doubt your presence and your love.
We live our lives so carefully as if you were not there to hold us when we fall.
Help us, Father,
To live like Jesus,
To live freely and joyfully,
Willing to take risks for love;
Willing to trust ourselves to your
wisdom when we cannot see;
Willing to believe that even out of the troubles of our lives
And the tragedies of our times
You can always bring new life both for us and for our world;
Through Jesus Christ who is Lord of time and eternity.
THE LORD’S PRAYER
Jesus, remember us in your kingdom and teach us to pray
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
