Christmas 1 (31/12/2017)

Pewsheet 31 December 2017


Dear Lord of all,
at the turn of year
we pray for courage
to trust our inner eye
as we turn ourselves
towards you,
and a new year.

Grant us the wisdom of Simeon
that we might be guided by your spirit
in the decisions we make.

Grant us the discipline and commitment
of Anna to trust that you will speak
when we need to her,
that we will listen
when we need to be led.

We pray for all leaders,
the likely, and the unlikely,
that they will find an inner
truth to guide them and us
through this new year, and always.

This we pray in the name of Jesus,
our likely, unlikely leader.
