30 May 2014

Our Novena of Prayer continues

Today we continue our nine days of prayer between Ascension and Pentecost.

A Novena of Prayer has been produced to help those across the Diocese pray together as we prepare for the 2015 Year of Discipleship.

From Friday, 30 May to Saturday, 7 June, a specially written prayer will be given for each day.

These nine days of prayer provide an opportunity to open ourselves to God's love and energy so that, like the early disciples, we become both individually and corporately the people God calls us to be.

Day 2: Saturday, May 31

John 1.5

The light shines in the darkness

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your people

Adoration: Christ our light, with you is the well of life and in your light do we see light.

Confession: for times when we have made choices that lead us further into darkness.

Thanks: for those who keep your light shining for us.

Seeking: to be confident in your love when we are tempted to be overcome by darkness.
