PRAYER FOR SUNDAY OF THE WORD OF GOD Pilgrim God,
you walk alongside us / and speak to us throughout the Scriptures:
in the message of the prophets, / the songs of David / and the vision of Paul. Your Son, Jesus Christ, / listens to our hopes and fears / and shows us how to live: in our love of neighbour / our desire for justice, / and in our dying and rising each day. Send us the Holy Spirit / to open our hearts and minds / so that we may be your witnesses / throughout the world: in our protection of the vulnerable, / our words and actions / and in our communion with the earth. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
