Our Novena of Prayer continues

Today is Day 5 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 5: Tuesday, June 3

John 8.1-8

The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your people.

Adoration: Generous God, nothing in life or death or in all creation can separate us from your love in Jesus Christ.

Confession: for meanness of heart when observing the generosity of people.

Thanks: for occasions when we are surprised by the generosity of others.

Seeking: for opportunities to be generous.
