Bible Sunday

Prayer  Based on Psalm 19


 God, your glory fills the heavens

and all that you have made bears your mark.

 We pray for this creation:

we ask forgiveness for the ways in which

 we have disfigured it;

we pray for those who cannot enjoy the

warm sun or the cool night,

those who are imprisoned or alone those

 who are ill or infirm those who mourn.

Use all of us, our hearts, our hands,

 to bring your wondrous power into their lives.

 Let us glorify you, O God.

 Let your hymn resound in our lives.



Next Sunday: 1st Nov. All Saints’ Day
