Daily prayers, from the Methodist Church in Britain website

 

This is today’s prayer:

 

In prayer, may we come to know ourselves and to meet our maker; to rejoice in God's goodness, to share in God's life, and to be enfolded in God's love. Amen. Julian of Norwich (1342-1420) Liberating Lord, under the burden of your cross you walked free of constraint; and by your resurrection you lead us into the glorious freedom of the children of God. As you free us from fear, let us live out your love; as you free us from anxiety, let us live in your joy; as you free us from hatred, let us live in your peace; as you free us from shortness of temper, let us live with your patience; as you free us from callousness, let us live by your kindness; as you free us from greed, let us live with your goodness; as you free us from violent impulse, let us live with your gentleness; as you free us from inconstancy, let us live through your faithfulness; as you free us from disobedience, let us live in your self-control. Amen. Andrew Lunn, Manchester and Stockport District Chair
