Day 3: Nine Days of Prayer for Discipleship

30 May 2014

Our Novena of Prayer continues

We continue with Day 3 of 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 3: Sunday, June 1

Genesis 1.13

God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your people

Adoration: Creator God, all creation sings to you, sings praise to your name.

Confession: for our abuse of your creation.

Thanks: in wisdom you have made all that exists.

Seeking: to recognise the goodness of God in all people and places.
