Sunday, 17 Dec 2017

Give us patience, O God, in the hour of trouble; humility in the hour of success and constancy in the hour of temptation. Grant us thankfulness for your benefits, fear of your judgement and hope in your enduring mercy; now and for ever. Amen.

John Cosin (1594-1672)

Prayer for Artists
God, you are the ultimate creator
and yet you share this gift with human hands and minds.
We thank you for artists,
for their work that enriches our lives and your world,
partners in creating,
makers of beauty and speakers of truth.
Let inspiration flow like a roaring river.
Let artists flourish.
Let art light up the world. Amen.

Annette Kupke

Verse of the Day

Matthew 1:20-21

“But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.””
