PRAYER FOR THE WEEK
Rev Chris’ online service this week was about the word ‘grace’. Grace is a key principle to the kingdom of God as He lavishes grace on all without favour – in the same way so we must be gracious with others in all circumstances.
Oh my God, You know my weakness and failings, and that without Your help I can accomplish nothing for the good of souls, my own and others’. Grant me, therefore, the help of Your grace. Grant it according to my particular needs this day. Enable me to see the task You will set before me in the daily routine of my life, and help me work hard at my appointed tasks. Teach me to bear patiently all the trials of suffering or failure that may come to me today. Amen.
