Faithfulness to God's call

      Be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us. Eph.5:1-2
      Lord God, you know that we cannot put our trust in anything that we do: help us to have faith in you alone, and mercifully defend us by your power against all adversity; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BCP Sexagesima
      Let us pray [that we may grow in the love of God]
      Almighty and ever-living God, your Spirit made us your children, confident to call you Father. Increase your Spirit within us and bring us to our promised inheritance. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. AAPB
      Grant, O Lord, that we may see in you the fulfilment of all our need, and may turn from every false satisfaction to feed on the true and living bread that you have given us in Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. APBA

Great and wonderful are your deeds
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
How can a young man keep his way pure
Jesus we look to thee
All the earth proclaim the Lord
Teach me your way O Lord
I thank you Lord that you have made
O Lord your love is changing the world
