To you, O God most high, we lift our hearts and to you we give our praise. To you we confess our sins and to you we come for pardon. To you we pray for one another and to you we come for grace. To you we render our thanks and to you we ascribe all honour and glory, now and for ever. Amen.

Isaac Watts (1674-1748)

Merciful God, led by your Spirit

and in partnership with all our sisters and brothers in Christ,

we present our bodies as a living sacrifice.

Transform us by the renewing of our minds

so that we may discern and be ready for all your perfect will,

serving in full obedience the one sacrificed for us,

Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me. Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

Attributed to St Patrick (372-466)

Loving, living God, you come to our world as light shining in our darkness. Through Jesus, your Son, our Saviour, you offer our world the bright burning flame of hope which neither fear, nor doubt, neither cynicism, nor despair can ever extinguish. Yet that hope which is ours is no rose-tinted optimism: it is a hope forged in the pain of the servant hanging on a cross. Because of his life, death and resurrection we live in hope today. So, Lord, this day may we live in that hope, and work that the hope which is ours may be made real for all. Amen.

To you, O God most high, we lift our hearts and to you we give our praise. To you we confess our sins and to you we come for pardon. To you we pray for one another and to you we come for grace. To you we render our thanks and to you we ascribe all honour and glory, now and for ever. Amen.

Isaac Watts (1674-1748)

Merciful God, led by your Spirit
and in partnership with all our sisters and brothers in Christ,
we present our bodies as a living sacrifice.
Transform us by the renewing of our minds
so that we may discern and be ready for all your perfect will,
serving in full obedience the one sacrificed for us,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Neil Stubbens, Connexional Ecumenical Officer
