Prayer for troubling times

God and King of Sunday blessing

We exalt Your name.

For the splendour of creation

For the beauty of the world

For the wonder of life

For the mystery of love

We thank You.
Above all this we thank You

For the coming of Christ

And the gift of Your Spirit

Who together unites us

As one people praying 

For the coming of Your kingdom.
Where there’s hatred, may we sow love

Where there’s offense, may we sow pardon

Where there’s dispair, may we sow hope.
Throughout this good earth

Where worldly powers mean it harm

We pray for Your holy catholic Church:

Empowers us to minister 

The hope of Your kingdom.

A Sunday collect, inspired by Psalm 145, and several prayers in the Book of Common Prayer.
