Oh fill us with your Spirit afresh
Teach us your ways
For of ourselves we get it so wrong
Today and every day!
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Building on your promises O God
Send us out
Resting in your promises O Lord
Keep us safe

As we look ahead to tomorrow
As we name before you those we are concerned about.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
